Lift Brings A Simple Habit-Tracking And Self-Improvement Experience To Your iPhone

Local search app AroundMe recently surpassed the 6 million user mark, and is looking to expand its availability even more. The company has just announced a Windows Phone version of the app, which is available now in the Windows Phone Marketplace.

AroundMe’s iPhone app has been out since 2008, and just recently the company revamped the Android app with a new look and feel. As per usual with Microsoft’s mobile platform, AroundMe looks substantially different on a Windows Phone-powered device.

The company has also announced that the AroundMe app is available in over 200 countries and 19,000 cities across the globe, with 25 million monthly searches from its 6 million-strong user base.

CEO Marci Pifferi had this to say about the new launch:

Our vision is to provide our users with the most relevant and accurate information when and where they need it. The addition of a new Windows Phone version will make our service even more widely available around the world. We are confident our app will help Windows users get more out of their device.

AroundMe’s greatest competition is Yelp!, but the former has no outside funding, a founding CEO, and four employees. And to top it off, AroundMe has over 6 million users while Yelp! sees around 5.7 million monthly uniques on its mobile apps. However, Yelp has been on Windows Phone since late 2010.
