Filed under YaDig for You
Hello world! A whole new YaDig is here to deliver you the best user experience yet. Now finding the right restaurant, hotel, coffee shop, bar, nightclub or anything else near you is not only easier, but is more fun too. Everything on YaDig.com – from design to features and functionalities – has been touched up, and in some cases overhauled, to deliver you a better user experience. The site now has got more visually appealing, simpler to use, and neater than before.
You valued feedback helped us make all the right changes to the site and equip it with the right tools to make it a great reviewing and networking website for you. The site with the new build lets you explore your city and surroundings better than the locals in an easy and intuitive fashion.
Below is a brief rundown of what major upgrades YaDig.com has gone through in the new build.
Design Revamp – Neater is Better
We have made major changes to YaDig’s design across the board. Whether it’s the homepage, listings page, business page or user/business dashboards, every single part of the site has undergone the design overhaul. The resultant look of the site has emerged neat, clutter-free and easy on the eye. As the redesign goes hand in hand with new feature/functionality upgrades, YaDig has just gotten more user-friendly and utilitarian than before.
Notifications – Stay In The Know
Real time notifications panel at the top right position of the site is a new great addition to the site. The panel is visible after you sign in to your YaDig account (Don’t have an account? Register FREE now!). The notifications panel keeps you up-to-date about the latest activities happening on the site. These updates may include all Dig Buddy activities (new place added, new review posted, new place followed, attending an event, availing a deal etc.), and user activities such as if someone likes your review, comments on it, or gives you a compliment etc.
Richer Dashboard – City News & Friends Updates
Your new User Dashboard on YaDig.com comes loaded with more useful content such as City News and Friends Updates, in addition to Following (for the places you’re following) and My Events (for events you’re attending). City News comprise most activity updates on places in your city, such as latest reviews on hottest places in your city, as well as newest deals and events announced by businesses establishments operating in your city. Friends Updates comprise most of your friends’ activities on YaDig.com such as new review posted, new place added, new advice asked etc.
Get Advice – Let the Locals Come to the Rescue
Get Advice, our brand new feature, allows users to ask the locals for their advice on a new city/area. For instance, if you’re in a new city or area and looking for a particular place to stay, eat out, have fun, study, stay fit, or do anything else, use Get Advice to ask the locals of that city/area to seek their informed advice about it. Your question will appear in the City News section of users of the city you need advice on. Advice from the locals will surely lead you to the right venue at the right time with ease.
Reviews – Say More with a Picture
Now you can couple your review with a photo to make it more powerful. When you’re saying things like the food at the restaurant is delicious, the nightclub is overcrowded, or the hotel’s room service is pathetic, add a photo with your review to give readers a clearer picture so they make wiser choices. Besides, it’s also fun to write a visual review and it’s good to look at as well.
Deals & Events – by Your Favourite Businesses
Finally, Deals & Events from the businesses you’re following are here. You get updates for all new deals & events posted by your favorite businesses on the site which you can browse straight from your YaDig Dashboard. YaDig offers special deals for its users in collaboration with partnered business establishments. These deals may entitle you to special discounts and offers at designated business outlets, or any other benefit/offer that the deal may dictate.
Do More – Comments, Tagging & Compliments
Now users can write comments on reviews, asked advice, as well as on deals & events. You can agree, disagree or endorse the review, or simply correct the reviewer in the comments. You can reply to the asked advice via comments. And you can say what you think about certain deal or event via comments.
You can also tag user reviews as funny, helpful or informative.
What’s more interesting is you can compliment a user profile with a Thank You, Good Writer, You’re Cool etc.
