FLOWER MOUND, Texas, June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A new social networking app is poised to make finding and sharing the best places and service providers easier than ever before. PlaceWiz connects millions of people and places worldwide, all within an elegant and simple user interface. Developed for iPhone users, PlaceWiz is free and available now from the App Store.
"We built PlaceWiz to meet the constant need to locate the best services in any given area, whether in one's own community or while traveling in a new area," says CEO and Founder Juan Rodriguez. "The app encourages users to share their favorite places and services with friends and family. A trusted recommendation can do wonders for a business, and the social sharing aspect of PlaceWiz should help the cream rise to the top. Users will definitely appreciate the intuitive design and strong performance of the app. If you can find it on Google, you can find it on PlaceWiz."
PlaceWiz users don't need to know the name of any particular place or service. Instead, the app allows for category searches. Those looking for health care providers and specialists can even search using diagnostic codes. The range of services that are searchable via the app is immense. Everything from schools and clinics to car mechanics, contractors and spas can be located in a matter of moments. Once a search is complete, users can quickly make a call, get driving directions, visit a service's website or read success stories by category – all from within PlaceWiz.
The social dimension of PlaceWiz is quite robust. Users can create and share "boards" that include all of their favorite places and service providers. Likewise, users can follow those places that interest them, receive notifications when anyone reviews or comments on a place, and even follow other users who seem to have similar interests.
PlaceWiz provides all of the features and tools to act as a mobile Rolodex for the digital age, but with more information and options than could ever fit on paper cards. Users can save all of their most frequented places and services for quick access. On the other hand, PlaceWiz can be used to curate lists of potential places to visit during a vacation. The app's versatility is why its developers expect it to have broad appeal. People can use PlaceWiz to help themselves or to help friends and family members, or both. Most importantly, the app is more focused and intuitive than Google searching, which often returns results that are too broad to be efficient and useful.
PlaceWiz is a smart, social and powerful tool that helps people explore, save and share millions of places from around the neighborhood – or the world. Anyone can quickly and conveniently find, follow and share the places that people in their communities like the most.
