YaSabe Uncovers Location-Aware iPhone App for U.S. Hispanics

YaSabe, a Hispanic local search company, released a new bilingual iPhone application specifically designed for U.S. Hispanics.  Available for free download from the App Store and from iTunes, the new bilingual search and browse application helps users discover their options and find local businesses nearby - based on their location.  Users can search and browse in Spanish or English and change the distance that they want to look to find out what's available around them.

“More than 25% of all iPhone users in the United States are Hispanic”, said Zubair Talib, President of YaSabe, “The YaSabe iPhone application is the first local search application built specifically for Latinos here in the US”.

The YaSabe iPhone application lets users search in Spanish or English by name, product, service, or category for any of the 15,000,000 local
businesses in the US.  YaSabe highlights those businesses that speak
Spanish and that particularly appreciate and welcome Hispanic customers and you can get one-click directions to any business right from your current GPS location.

Human editors
For people who want help selecting the right local business, the built-in Ayudame feature lets users ask YaSabe’s human editors for help – directly from their mobile device.

YaSabe released a similar next-generation mobile application for Android phones, which is available for free from the Android Marketplace.
