Superb is a new application launched today. It could be a whole new way for consumers to look for local places like restaurants, bars, and museums.
Superb comes to consumers from the folks who introduced Grubwithus, a social dining startup. Grubwithus was a new idea, and gave consumers the option of finding each other offline. Superb is a free download on iTunes. The site sets up gatherings with strangers attempting to meet new friends, according to The Huffington Post. Users say whether the place is “hot” or “not.”
“Facebook and Foursquare is either ‘I’m here now’ or ‘this is what I did in the past,’ explains Superb co-founder Eddy Lu in Tech Crunch. “We’re all about future intent.”
Superb is easy to use, and similar to Meetup. After signing on, the consumer sees images of places. The photos come from Instagram. Then, you indicate what place might be best, and chat with folks who might agree with you. Superb conducted testing with 1,000 people. According to Business Standard, the application groups people according to their choices in restaurants or museums.
