TheInsider App

August 20th, 2012 at 2:00 pm by David Farrar

Wellingtonians are going to love this ap – you can get it from Apple App Store here.

TheInsider is an app which shows you in (I believe it will expand) where all the bar, cafe and restaurant specials are near you – or just generally in . I’ve been waiting for an app like this.

It is free for the month of August, so get in quick.

It is very easy to use, and you can view the specials in list order or on a map. I’ll be using it whenever I am drifting in town.

    Well, I’m the drifter
    Who solved the answer
    And when I found you
    I knew for ever
    Would be for ever
    And not for some time
    And you’d be mine
    Won’t have to be trying alone

    There’s a diamond in that song.

    Wow – a great development for unmarried, childless out of touch with with the real world, effete, middle aged, urban liberals.

    Meanwhile back on planet earth, we have to house, clothe, feed and educate our own despite the depredations of the empty headed chattering classes as they parasitically feed their bloated faces in Wellington’s finest eateries at our expense, located with their newest flashy gizmos

    The app sounds great, I hope it expands to Auckland soon as it would be so awesome to expand my list of goto places, while scoring awesome deals in the process!
    Andrei, sounds like you are having a terrible time with your life. Cheer up mate, try treating yourself to a night out on the town or something

    Hey everyone – we are currently working on expanding to Auckland Central – we should be up and running in a month or so. We are also hoping to launch an Android version before the end of the year. If you have any questions please contact us at facebook.com/theinsiderapp or on twitter (@wiretapplabs).

    This is a fantastic app. Well done guys. It is great to see a homegrown app that is executed well. I’m looking forward to the Auckland launch.

    Daz – i’m not sure the MyBuy app has quite the same polish as TheInsider. Also -where is the content?
