Ever spend hours searching Google or Bing to help you find your favorite lipstick or a new cool bar in the city where you are traveling? Wasn't the internet supposed to make our lives easier?! Sometimes it's just so frustrating running in circles to find what we need.
It would be quite helpful to always have a personal assistant running around to do those things for you. But hey, we can't all be a high powered executive. Insert Conciergist - a new app that acts as an in-pocket personal assistant for us regular folk.
You type your query as an IM into the app, and a LIVE person - I repeat LIVE - does all of your searching for you using local sites, high end brand retailers, whatever fits best for your search. Not just the big general search engines. Consider it a curated search engine just for you.
And the best part - you don't have to be active while they are searching. So if you are about to enter a big meeting, but are dying to find the best place to get a manicure that night, Conciergist will keep searching for you and send you the answer. Hello fresh mani after that boring sales presentation!
