Early feedback tells us that you enjoy browsing Spindle’s feeds to discover what’s happening, but there are times when you want to search for something more specific. So as we worked on our latest version, our goal was to give you greater power and control over how you find and navigate results, and get notified about what’s happening nearby. Today we’re excited to announce Spindle 2.0, with keyword search, maps, and search alerts, plus expanded coverage that now includes Austin, Chicago, and Seattle!
A Better Way to Search
Unlike other services that just deliver stale business recommendations or allow you to search a fixed list of places by name, our new keyword search feature lets you tap the always-fresh stream of local updates to find exactly what interests you. And with our new maps, you can pan, zoom, and swipe to pinpoint exactly where great stuff is happening.
Whether you’re looking for a “free yoga class,” a “craft beer” on tap, “live jazz,” a restaurant promotion where “kids eat free,” or a place to watch tonight’s “Celtics game,” you can find a needle in the haystack with Spindle search.
At Your Service
Spindle takes another leap forward with search alerts, coupling the app in your pocket with a cloud-based search service that runs continually on your behalf. When you create search alerts, Spindle monitors nearby updates and sends timely notifications if places mention the topics you’re tracking. It’s a great way to find out when things you care about are happening nearby, without even opening the app.
