    InfoSpace Find It! V1.4 is now available

    Advertisement



    Back again for another update. Sorry for the absence, the team has been focusing on the new release. InfoSpace Find It! V1.4 is available for download via the normal download site.

    OTA: http://bb.infospace.com/ps

    Here is a quick summary of some of the new features. First and foremost, I wanted to let you know we heard you loud and clear about the upgrade notifications last time around. Moving forward we have a link directly to the download page when you accept the new download. Since this is the first client with this feature, you will get the benefit next upgrade. Notifications for existing users will happen by Friday, of you are impatient, feel free to download it.

    Ratings
    We now have ratings for some businesses exposed. Not all businesses have ratings, but these are ratings from users of multiple sources. (not just InfoSpace). If we have a rating, you will see it in the business listing now. This is fantastic to get a baseline of how good (or bad) a business is.

    Wi-Fi Hotspots
    You can now browse through categories for Wi-Fi Hotspots. Many of you are out and about on a regular basis in need of connectivity. This makes it a little easier.

    Copy Business to Clipboard
    Lookup a business details page and bring up your context menu. You now see an option to copy the business to the clipboard. This is great for sending a friend the details of where you want to meet them.

    Copy Directions to Clipboard
    To go along with the afore mentioned COPY BUSINESS TO CLIPBOARD, we also now have COPY DIRECTIONS TO CLIPBOARD. If you look up directions for a business and go to either the step by step or ALL directions, you can copy those to the clipboard as well. Now not only can you tell people what business you are at, but how to get there.

    Directions Improvements
    If you like to use the step by step directions (and many of you rave about it), you will be happy to see the improvement we made this time around. Now segment maps are on by default, and each step of the segment map is pre-loaded so they are available on your handset faster.

    Try it out...
    - get directions to a location
    - choose #2 (turn by turn)

    You will see great improvements here.

    View 5 on Map
    Now if you get a listing of businesses and choose "view 5 on map", you will notice the layout is a little easier to follow. Just a slight UI tweak to help you out.

    Thanks for the update. This is one of my favorite programs for the BB, I tend to use it quite often. Thanks for continuing the great work on developing this program.

    One feature I would like to see is a traffic/road work feature, that lets you know of of "live" road work and etc in the area. I havent seen this on Infospace unless I completely missed it, but its on Yahoo Go and its pretty useful. Something that I think can make the program even better.

    Anyone use Beyond411?

    Any opinions on if it's worth keeping both Beyond 411 and InfoSpace Find It? They seem similar, and Infospace has a nicer user interface.

    Just wondering other people's thoughts... space on my bb is at a premium!

    Thanks!

    will this app ever work like bbmaps or google maps... where the dot moves on teh screen, and when it is time to turn, it tells you to turn? how about re-routing button? say you miss the turn.

    It is something we are looking into for an upcoming release, more active maps integration. Currently we are not trying to replicate an exact turn by turn / rerouting option like you'd get in a PND, however we do see the value in more interactive maps. All I can say is we have plans around improvements here.

    you should beat the street. it is only a matter of time before google maps has this functionality. play your cards right and you could be bought by them... just like grand central... can you say kaching!
