By sending a Thank You Note for a great recommendation or sharing a review about a restaurant you truly love, Ness will now enable more natural and trustworthy responses.

Ness Computing is proud to announce a major update to the Ness App for iPhone and iPod touch that adds rich social media capabilities, including Thank You Notes, Smart Invite and support for Notification Center in iOS 5.

The Ness App recommends restaurants by learning a user’s tastes and then predicts how much a user will like a restaurant on a scale from 0 to 100%. As the user rates more restaurants, Ness will adapt recommendations to a user’s tastes. Ness users can then share these great spots with their friends via Facebook.

Social media features included in the update:

  •     Thank You Notes: Show friends appreciation for their recommendations in Ness by sending and receiving Thank You Notes as Facebook wall posts.
  •     Post Reviews to Facebook: Share restaurant reviews at the flip of a switch.
  •     Personalized Home Screen: Ness intelligently presents a user’s favorite cuisines on the home screen.
  •     Smart Invite: Ness suggests a list of friends to invite to Ness who would enjoy the app the most.
  •     Notification Center: Notifications sent when friends ask for reviews, follow other users, and like reviews.

“Ness aims to streamline and personalize the act of finding your next meal out," said Corey Reese, Founder and CEO of Ness Computing. “By sending a Thank You Note for a great recommendation or sharing a review about a restaurant you truly love, Ness will now enable more natural and trustworthy responses. Additionally, the more Ness can facilitate natural conversations between friends about their favorite restaurants, the better the experience will be for everyone.”

Instead of having users rely on thousands of reviews from strangers, Ness helps diners quickly choose restaurants based on what they already enjoy. When users connect Facebook and Foursquare to Ness, they can also see what their friends enjoy. The result is a quick and accurate way to find just the right restaurant to dine at.

The Ness App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or iPod touch or at http://www.itunes.com/appstore/.
