NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Kate's Goodness Inc. has released its namesake mobile app in the App Store today. Kate's Goodness helps users uncover great and often hidden places (Goodness) treasured by locals from around the world. The app also encourages and motivates independent contributors to share their favorite locations in a writer-friendly native mobile environment. All of Kate's Goodness content is generated exclusively by its users and carefully curated by Editors.
Kate's Goodness plays in the multi-billion dollar user-generated local content (UGLC) market, and offers distinct advantages over the first generation UGLC companies, such as Yelp or TripAdvisor:
- User Experience: friend-like (not yellow pages-like)
- Content: curated, pre-selected, positive (not generic or negative)
- Locations: only locals' favorite places, high quality (not everything)
- Noise: low – short form clean content (no unlimited reviews or comments from anyone)
- Contributor Influence: tied to quality of content and Goodness (not to quantity)
- Contributor Rewards: community, vanity, promotions, $'s (not just vanity)
- Rating System: dynamic, currency-like (not static, Likes or Stars-based)
- Brand: stands for quality (not just ubiquity)
"We view ourselves as the next generation location discovery tool for travelers and locals alike and, at the same time, as a powerful mobile platform for local content contributors," said Kate, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Kate's Goodness. "We know how hard it is to have your quality content discovered and recognized by a mobile audience, which is why we want to empower our independent writers with our technology. We just launched in New York and already have a few dozen contributors and several hundred amazing places here. Ultimately, our goal is to build a vibrant global community of people who care about the quality of one's experience."
Kate's Goodness app enables users to:
- Search for Goodness – not just any great place, each Goodness is someone's favorite
- Create private or public Collections of Goodness posts to share with friends and followers
- Share Goodness through social media
- Add Goodness locations – 1 cool original picture and less than a 100 words is all it takes
- Receive rewards and promotions for sharing Goodness
Users can now download Kate's Goodness app from the App Store and enjoy these and many other advanced features.
