Flamp - this is a new fast growing service for Android and iOS with reviews about the companies in the major cities of Russia. This program is made to help you choose a good restaurant, club, shop or any other place, based on honest feedback from real users of the application.
This young service has one big advantage: it is engaged in the development of the company DoubleGIS , which is well-known in Russia for his maps and directories of organizations. Of all people, and these guys know how to help you quickly find the best place in the shortest period of time.
Design and functionalityThe program is a nice minimalist design where all the free space is given only for information about institutions and enterprises. From the beginning, we meet a welcome screen with a request to register, enter a username and password or with the help of social networks Twitter, Facebook, Vkontakte.
At the moment, the service is well supported in the largest Russian cities such as Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, and so on. New cities are added quickly, but delays due to the fact that the lists of establishments and reviews here carefully moderated, not to miss here custom and dishonest reviews. In this regard, the service until it rests better than Foursquare, which are common enough apparently "custom" comment.
Each user can leave your own comment to the institution, providing it with a photo and a small piece of text. If you are looking for a suitable place, here they will be lined up on the list by distance and the number of positive ratings.
By choosing the right place, you can view it on the map and if you want to quickly create a route for navigation, which is very convenient if you are driving. Very pleased that the program looks not only cafes, clubs and restaurants, and ATMs, terminals, and other useful items.
