Local Search App Zodio Adds Video Reviews, Becomes First in Asia

Zodio today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Zodio 2.6, an update to their popular location-based social network app developed exclusively for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. This latest update gives users the ability to record ten to thirty second video reviews of places.

Zodio is a free social location-based app that helps people discover places around them using ratings and recommendations from their friends. Users of Zodio can check-in, write reviews and upload photos of the places they visit and share. Zodio has fast become a dominant local search platform in Asia with a large user base in Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia.

This latest update of the iPhone app marks the launch of Zodio’s newest review format – video reviews. Users of the Zodio iPhone app will be able to record and share ten to thirty second videos of places they’ve visited – making Zodio the first local search app in Asia to support video.

Said Jai Govindani, Founder/CEO of Zodio – “It’s widely known that video is a much more engaging medium when compared to text. We believe that allowing users to take videos of their favorite places allows them to share their experiences in a much richer fashion, and gives viewers a much clearer idea of what to expect from a place.”

The Video Reviews feature is currently available exclusively on the Zodio iPhone app.

Zodio 2.6 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Travel category. Zodio also has a website making it widely available to everyone.
