Time Out New York has upgraded its digital platforms, including a revamped Web site and new iPad and iPhone apps. The new e-commerce-enabled site allows users to buy theater tickets and book restaurant reservations, as well as get daily discounts and deals through its “Offers and Experiences” section.
The new iPad app is designed to serve as a personalized recommendation engine, using technology from LikeCube, a semantic analysis company Time Out acquired last year. It will also offer editorial critics’ picks across the arts, entertainment, food and other areas. MasterCard is launch sponsor for the iPad app.
The iPhone version provides arts, entertainment and venue information for both locals and visitors, and Time Out New York plans to introduce an Android app in the coming weeks.
