City Explore app was developed to proactively help users locate venues, restaurants, events, spas, museums or anything they need depending on the time of the day and location. Users have the ability to select specific categories and will be notified about their select places of interest in their current location.

The City Explore app uses Yelp’s API as a source of information for location and places in the US. After researching on the various points of interest databases available, Yelp’s free and comprehensive API was chosen for connecting to point of interest database.
