Recently launched by software developer LinkDotz Inc., PlaceBox aims to reshape your world--almost literally--by combining the most popular features of a number of location finding and sharing apps already available. But PlaceBox's claim to fame will not be simply consolidating popular features. The up-and-coming app also pioneers a number of invaluable user options, many included in this new update.
PlaceBox is new to the United States App Store, and based upon its reception around the globe, PlaceBox is expected to earn plenty of new fans. The application helps users find locations and services using a unique category based search rather than relying upon typing in place names. The intuitively designed categories, arranged conveniently across only two screens, make finding the right nightlife spot, breakfast nook, or coffee shop a breeze. Of course, searching by place name is also available. In addition to finding locations, users can also access other users' notes and reviews of popular places, check-in to locations, and note the number of check-ins which have occurred at each location.
Users can sort their results in the way that best suits their particular needs, based upon overall rating or popularity. With this exciting new update, users will also have the ability to sort their results by distance, either from their current location or another location of their choosing.
One of the most impressive features of the new update is the improved search function. PlaceBox now features an extensively redesigned keyword-based search engine which gives users the best relevant results for their area. Users can sort results by relevance as well, in addition using distance, popularity, and rating. To easily find favorites later, users can add notes or store a list of points of interest.
Finally, PlaceBox is useful for more than simply finding and visiting new places--it can also serve as a travel journal. Users can share their locations, photos, and notes via social network integration in-app with Facebook and Twitter. With the ability to take photos, create albums, and make short notes or more extensive journal entries attached to places users have visited, PlaceBox truly serves as an all-in-one app for researching locations, getting directions, and sharing experiences! Currently, PlaceBox offers language support in English, Japanese and Korean, and is soon to add Spanish, German, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, French, and Hindi.
