There are millions of Android users in the U.S. who can now share their experiences with the Evzdrop community and stay connected to places of interest, all in real time.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Evzdrop, a Chicago-based tech startup that combines location-based technology with a social media platform to connect people to places in real time, announced today the launch of its mobile app for Android.
The free app allows users to “eavesdrop” on places through people on site who post, or “Drop,” about their real-time experiences in 140 characters or less. Location-verified users can Drop reviews, opinions and feedback from places while comments can be made by users from anywhere. Now Android users can make Drops and follow what people are saying about places, including restaurants, retail stores, bars, stadiums, hotels and other venues. Examples could include how long the wait is at a restaurant, how a team looked in warm-ups or new sales happening at stores.
Evzdrop seeks to bring more verification and credibility to the traditional review process while giving users a filtered interest graph to express themselves and be informed beyond their social networks.
Additional features on the app include:
- A ‘Stealth’ function to allow users to Drop anonymously when they want to be heard but not found
- Optional photo-sharing capability to bring more color and validity to Drop content
- “Props” issued by anyone in the Evzdrop community to the best Drops, pushing them to the top of the list where they will be seen by more users
- Social content sharing via Facebook and Twitter
- Real-time communication with businesses on the network
“We are excited about bringing a whole new group of users into our community,” said David Rush, Evzdrop’s co-founder and CEO. “Given the progress we’re making with businesses who want to access Drops from more of their customers, it was a natural progression to launch our Android version of the app. There are millions of Android users in the U.S. who can now share their experiences with the Evzdrop community and stay connected to places of interest, all in real time.”
Evzdrop allows businesses to become a part of the conversation and communicate with customers in real time before they leave the venue. Businesses on the network also have access to an analytics dashboard that provides key demographic information as well as conversation volume and sentiment. Evzdrop is currently working with businesses such as dana hotel & spa, Fairmont Chicago, The Berghoff restaurant, Blue Man Group, Chicago Architecture Foundation, aria restaurant and many others.
Evzdrop is a Chicago-based tech startup and location-based interest network that allows people stay connected to what’s happening at places in real time. The free mobile app and Web platform allow users to “eavesdrop” to get an inside look at any place they’re interested in through the people who are present and posting about what’s going on at any given moment. Businesses can take advantage of Evzdrop’s custom campaigns and analytics dashboard to impact in-store experience, engagement and overall customer satisfaction. Evzdrop has seen Drops from more than 4,000 unique places since its September launch. For more information, visit http://www.evzdrop.com.
