Getit Launches Local Search Feature For Smartphones' App

2 May, 2012

Local search and classified services provider GETIT Infoservices Pvt Ltd, has announced a new feature called NearMe for its local search apps. The NearMe feature automatically updates the nearest location of the user via GPS or Internet to give information about surrounding area to the user.

The results based on NearMe can also be viewed in the map integrated in the application. The map helps the user to search for direction (in case he/she is new to the place), besides discovering the nearest restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, ATMs etc within a customized radius. The feature also enables to view location on maps, get directions and save the favorite items. The results featuring on NearMe can detect places in the radius of upto 2 km.

"Considering the fact that Android, Blackberry, Windows and i-Phone spans across thousands of different mobile devices and ranks highest in mobile operating systems, they are ideal platforms for GETIT to launch its new feature," said Sidharth Gupta, CEO, GETIT Infoservices Pvt Ltd.


Getit launched its mobile app last year starting with iPhone. The app, with the new feature, is available for Android, Blackberry, iPhone and Windows OS phones. The Getit app can be downloaded from www.getit.in and from the link http://www.getit.in/apps/mobile/.
