Knowzz Trusted Local Services — Find Reliable Services From People You Trust! (Review)

knowzzSometimes searching for local services in a new or even your own neighborhood can be frustrating. You can ask your friends for recommendations on social websites but may not always receive a reply in time. Or you could look in the Yellow Pages but cannot be certain of the credibility of the listed services. This is where Knowzz – Trusted Local Services comes in. Developed by Knowzz Inc, Knowzz is a unique App which lets your friends and neighbors help you without them even knowing about it.

Content and Features

Knowzz supplies you with recommendations of nearby local services that include your friends’ suggestions. With Knowz, users  can recommend their favorite piano teacher, dentist, pediatrician, landscaper, and hair stylists in one click, directly from their contact list, which allows friends and family instant access to their most trusted service providers.

Setting up your profile is hassle-free. Tell Knowzz about your gender and residence and that’s it. Recommendations will be displayed under categories such as automotive, dentist, beauty etc. Next to each local service will be two thumbs up — one from your friends and one from someone nearby.  Moreover, if you like to find more businesses of a particular category you can always search for them. If you are still unsatisfied, you can browse a trusted friend’s recommendations to find a business. Furthermore, tapping on a business brings up the details from which you can call the service, save it, see which friends recommended this and view the location in Maps. Lastly, you can invite your friends directly from the App who do not use Knowzz. Even without friends, Knowzz does a pretty good job of hooking you up to a new local service. As Steve Sobolevsky, CEO and Founder of Knowzz says, “The biggest problem for me when searching these other sites is that I don’t know the person on the other end of the recommendation. With Knowzz, I’m able to see which friend made the recommendation, making my decision to hire that much easier.”.
