Bizzy’s Android app is the easiest way to find great recommendations for you to eat, play, or shop. Bizzy uses your location to provide you with personalized recommendations in your area, which are built leveraging an algorithm that maps you to people who like the same places you do. Bizzy breaks down the recommendations first by quality and then by distance. You can browse based on categories such as restaurants, bars and nightlife, coffee shops, entertainment, shopping and even ice cream and frozen yogurt, and you can further filter your recommendations using subcategories such as Cuban, dive bars or shoe stores.
With users contributing over 120,000 favorites in just 12 weeks, Bizzy has generated more than 1.1 million personal recommendations and has opened their beta to everyone, rolling out personalized recommendations and new features across the country.
"We want to provide people with quality local business recommendations whenever and wherever they need them, and with Google’s Android platform shipping roughly one-third of the 101.2 million smartphones shipped across the globe in Q4, we knew it was the logical next step," said Shamia. "Bizzy’s Android app makes it easy to find recommended businesses nearby based the favorites of from people who have similar tastes."
