Atlanta, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/23/2014 -- Gayborhood, a web and mobile service for locating gay-friendly businesses, announced that new versions of its mobile application have been made available. The updated versions of the app are available on Apple's iTunes App Store and Google's Play Store and include a number of frequently requested improvements. Gayborhood is the leading service for those searching for businesses which do not discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered people, allowing users of its web or mobile applications to quickly search through 1500 categories.
"As our user base has gotten bigger and bigger," company representative Joey Parker said, "we've been able to focus more on usability and interface issues, particularly those that our valued fans have been clamoring for. Those who download our newly updated app will find a number of important improvements that are going to make the Gayborhood experience even more productive and enjoyable." As gay rights issues have become increasingly prominent in recent years, people of all sexual orientations and gender identities have sought ways to reward businesses which promote tolerance and inclusiveness. Gayborhood has been a pioneer on the digital side of things, offering its users an efficient, intuitive way to find and patronize local businesses which stand out as gay-friendly.
The company offers its services through both a traditional web application, usable from any modern web browser at gayborhoodapp.com, and an application which is available for mobile devices running iOS or the Android operating system. The recently updated application features an entirely overhauled user interface, one which is designed from the ground up to work as well as possible on a wide variety of screen sizes and configurations. In addition, it provides for the first time the much-requested feature of allowing users to add businesses to Gayborhood's database, an addition which will make the already up-to-the-minute service even more so. The new version of the Gayborhood app also includes a number of usability improvements, such as one which allows users to narrow their searches directly from the application's map screen.
"Between our website and freshly updated mobile applications," Parker continued, "Gayborhood really has our users covered. Whether it's finding a contractor who is especially gay-friendly or wanting to avoid chains which contribute to hate causes, we're making the task easier than ever." In addition to maintaining comprehensive lists of LGBTQ-friendly businesses which cover the nation's major cities, Gayborhood also hosts reviews contributed by its users. These more-personal takes on particular businesses help to flesh out the objective side of the service's database and have been steadily growing in popularity. The company is committed to maintaining its position of leadership, including updating its applications further, as warranted.
The leading service for those seeking LGBT-friendly businesses in their areas, Gayborhood allows users to easily search through more than 1500 categories. A thriving community contributes helpful, interesting reviews, and a large selection of special deals for users make Gayborhood's service even more attractive.
