Vegas Mate 2.5 - 13,000 Words of Content Goodness

Posted by Hunter

Vegas Mate, my Las Vegas travel guide for the iPhone and iPod Touch, is about to be updated again, to version 2.5. This will be the tenth update to Vegas Mate since it was originally released in August 2008.

What's new in this version? Nearly 13,000 words of updated or brand new content, along with some other tweaks and enhancements.

As I look at the future of Vegas Mate and other related apps (ahem, iPad ahem), I see good content as being right at the core of delivering a top-notch product. With that in mind, I hired my good friend, highly acclaimed freelancer Steve Friess to produce a few words (sometimes more than just a few) on virtually all of the hotels in the Vegas Mate database.

The result is a fantastic update full of a ton of information (some of which was new to me!) I couldn't be more happy with the way it has turned out and I'm sure you'll love it too. It's really fantastic.

My plan is to submit 2.5 to Apple in the next few days so it should be available relatively soon - maybe a week from now if the stars align properly. Vegas Mate updates are free to all existing customers.

In other news, I'm happy to say that a new Vegas Mate Web site is practically done (I cringe whenever I look at the current VM site). It features more info on the app as well as several screen casts showing the app in action.

I can hardly wait to see the new Vegas Mate site. I may even have to get an iPad just to see the new mobile app in action! :-)

It was good to see your VegasMate mentioned in City Life. I've never used it and don't own an iPod or iPhone, but if I did VegasMate would be one of the first applications I'd buy. I even named the VegasMate the 2010 Best 'Vegas Product of the Year' on the first page of my website about a month ago (I hope you don't mind) cuz I truly think it is.

Anyway. I just read Steve's article, then Goggled something and ended up on this page. I was actually trying to find out how that Wynncore thing worked out...cuz, Steve's article said it was over. I hope things worked out okay.

Okay. That's all I wrote to say.
