Cynapse announces the newest version of Localscope, v2.3, an update that highlights how location as a facet reveals relevant local information from conventional information systems. Localscope provides an un-matched local discovery experience by seamlessly tapping into geo tagged information from multiple local search engines, social networks and media sharing services and serving up unprecedented results around a location. With v2.3, Localscope adds 3 new source choices - Wikipedia, Citysearch and Google Local besides the already integrated sources - Google Places, Foursquare, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Panoramio, Flickr, Picasa, YouTube, Wikimapia, Google Local, Bing, Wikipedia, Citysearch, Fwix News and Fwix Reviews.
"While the new geo-app trend is to provide automated social serendipity; a fun concept, we believe that intuitive consumption of geo information is the biggest need of the user. With the smartphones in their hands, users are frequently sharing their discoveries in the form of check-ins, photos, videos, place reviews via different networks. But how does one put all of this shared knowledge to use? Thats where Localscope comes in. With Localscope, we provide a hyper-local search experience and aggregate geo specific info and media around a location from 16 diverse sources enabling the users to choose whats most relevant to them." said Romasha Roy Choudhury, Chief Evangelist at Cynapse.
