We wanted to dedicate our first blog post to highlighting…
Today, we’re excited to introduce our site…TownFave. The goal of TownFave is to answer the question: “What’s the best place in town for anything?”
The idea is pretty simple. Anyone can create a list of the best spots in town for any topic. For example, a topic could be “The Best Cappuccino in Downtown”. Once a topic is created with several locations, any member can vote up/down the locations on that list…and even add new locations to a list.
We think this is a fun and useful concept. People are always talking about what’s the best in town for this-and-that…which always leads to fun discussion. A lot of review sites answer the question, “Is this place any good?”…and star ratings can easily tell you if it’s generally bad (1 star) or if it’s generally good (5 stars). But when you’re looking for something that’s the Best in Town…location reviews can’t really effectively answer that question. The natural thing to do is to compare locations for specific things with other locations in the form of a list. A place that got 2 stars for bad service and long lines…just might have the tastiest cup of cappuccino compared to all the other spots in town for cappuccino.
Today, we’re doing a soft “beta” launch just to get feedback from initial users and to iron out any bugs and kinks. We totally encourage feedback and bug reports, so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org…we’d love to hear from you! Please take a moment to sign up for the site, take it for a spin, and let us know what you think! We are working on a lot of cool ideas in the near future to make this app better…and to extend this to more cities!
