About Us.

Townaide was founded in 2015 and has come a long way since then, evolving into what you now see as Townaide. Our mission is to provide people with local places, deals and recommendations from a community you can trust! We strive to give you quality instead of quantity, but we do that too…

By giving users the best local information, we are helping and growing these local communities and showing users what these communities have to offer, and it’s quite a lot if you just knew where to look…

By the way, everything on Townaide is monitored by our local communities, so you know you’re getting the best local advice out there.

If you want to give Townaide a try, we have a website (Which you’re on…), mobile website (Which you could also be on…), iPhone app and an Android app. Just type in Townaide on your App Store and we’ll be there!

FAQ

Why use Townaide?2018-11-30T07:07:30+00:00

We want you to use Townaide because it will benefit you, as a user and business. We deliver a ton of accurate information from local places, show you the greatest deals that are happening in the area and aim to grow towns into communities… Sorry, what was the question again?

Why recommendations and not ratings?2018-11-30T07:08:51+00:00

We had a look at the rating system and saw there were a couple of problems with it (look at us being all intellectual and stuff). Anyways with ratings, your 5-star rating could be equivalent to my 3-star rating.

Maybe you just wanted a plate of food and you’re all good, 5-star rating for all, but when I give a 5-star rating I expect a red carpet entrance, valet service, oh and a plate of food of course… you see where we’re going with this?

But if you’d recommend a place to someone, that eliminates the fine print and purely means the place is worthy of your recommendation.

How does the search work?2018-11-28T14:00:11+00:00

The search also uses the centre of your screen, but it uses the radius you have selected (Which is on the side of your screen and ranges from 1km to 15km). It will then perform the search you have requested.

This keeps the searches local and reachable for you, which we think is pretty cool.

How does the explore work?2018-11-28T13:59:10+00:00

The explore feature is quite a neat one, if we can say so ourselves. Explore uses the center of your screen and finds a variety of places that are nearby.

This is a great feature if you’re in a town you’ve never been to before and feel like discovering new places or even in your hometown, bet you we could find a few places you didn’t even know were there…
