  1. Nice

  2. Before I try this and become biased, just wanted to know how is it different from Google Maps / Just Dial / Localscope ?

    Also from where are you getting the services data? As far as I know, there are only a few data providers like Yellow Pages, Openstreet Maps etc. if you are building the data on your own its going to be a humongous task! Make sure you have a backend for service providers to add / edit their business listings.

    Will try the app sometime and post feedback 🙂 all d best .. This avenue sure has lot of scope if executed correctly!

  3. Thanks for your reply, Jitendra. Basic functionality is not much different.

    Few things:

    1. Locat’r works across the globe.
    2. Locat’r shows closest service providers only, within an area of 5km radius only. If no service provider is located in that area, it does not show anything.
    3. It is available on Android and iOS.

    The app gets data from Google. We are not building data, however, an option for the service providers to add their service sounds good. Thanks for the idea!

    Please, please try the app and share your experience. 

  4. Received lots of mails and messages. Glad that I wrote about Locat’r here on Trhs; got to know what people liked, problems they faced, what they expected. Great insights. Rodinhoods made it easy for us.

    Here is the summary of what people said. Sharing here so that everybody can understand the power of Trhs Showcase.

    1. Feedback: On HTC mobile, sometimes it says Locat’r stopped working.
      Our Response: We are working to fix this, the issue is nearly resolved.
    2. Feedback: When there is no service to show, it does not show any message. Could not understand whether no service available or the app was not working.
      Our Response: Locat’r shows service providers within an area of 5km radius. Think we need to show this or give an option to extend the area. Thanks for this feedback.
    3. Feedback: While entering text in the search box, did not find any submit button. Was looking for a Send/Submit option something similar to what we have on WhatsApp.
      Our Response: Hmm…will consider this in the coming version. Stay tuned.
    4. Feedback: Not much different from Google Map; but liked the simplicity.
      Our Response: Thankssss!!!
