Browse Instagram photos around you with Localscope v4.5, again

Browse Instagram photos around you with Localscope v4.5, again

We’re happy to announce the availability of the latest version of Localscope – 4.5 with fixes for the Instagram and CitySearch service integrations and more.

Localscope integrates with Instagram to fetch geo-tagged photo content from around your location and presents them to you in a unique view. However, due to a recent change in the Instagram API, users have been unable to explore places around them via Instagram. With v4.5 Localscope now officially integrates with the new Instagram API. Based on the new API guidelines, users who’d like to see pictures of places around a location, will now be required to login to their Instagram account and authorize Localscope. Once the necessary permissions are given to Localscope, it makes a direct API connection to Instagram i.e. there are no servers in between. All the user’s account credentials are stored securely on their device. Further, since we do not get users to create an account with Localscope, there is no way for us to save your location details or your search queries.

An inspiring afternoon with Tim Cook

An inspiring afternoon with Tim Cook

18th May 2016 was an exhilarating day for me as I had the opportunity to meet with Apple CEO – Tim Cook, Apple COO – Jeff Williams and key members of the Apple Team. It was a privilege like no other. I am humbled that Tim Cook took some quality time out from his busy schedule in Mumbai to spend over an hour with me along with the founders of Urban Clap, Sweet Couch and Avaz.

We pour tremendous amount of love into our products and our design philosophies strongly align with Apple’s. It was encouraging to see Tim Cook genuinely excited and curious about Numerics and the unique use of Apple technology in our app. He was quite impressed with the vision, design and the data security model of Numerics.

Here’s what he shared in a tweet after the meeting:

It has been an honor and one of the greatest validations of our work and vision.

Localscope updated for iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus, adds Uber integration


Today we are happy to release Localscope v4.3 optimized for the new larger screen devices; iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Since 2010, we have focussed on enabling the most intuitive local search and discovery experience for our users with Localscope. Our large loyal fan base of users continue to appreciate it and come back to using the app regularly. With v4.3 we are excited to finally extend Localscope’s rich experience of discovering places to the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices. Users can now enjoy the same user experience on their larger screens with 3x images and improved rich icons. With native support Localscope is no longer zoomed in and is now able to display more place results on the bigger screen devices.
Uber-Logov4.3 now enables users to book an Uber cab to search results directly from within the app. Each result in Localscope now has an option to “Book a ride to here” via Uber. This means you can not only call the business or look up directions, but you can hail an Uber by tapping a button in the detail page of a result. This action will open up the Uber app if its installed on your iPhone with the pickup and destination addresses pre-filled. You simply have to choose the type of Uber you’d prefer to travel with and hop on your ride to get to the location. If you don’t have Uber installed, Localscope will direct you to their mobile website to complete the reservation process. iOS users who do not have an Uber account can even use Apple Pay to sign up and pay for their Uber ride without having to ever pull out their wallet. Localscope users from 300 cities across 58 countries covered by Uber can now use the “Book a Ride” feature. More cities and taxi service integrations will follow soon.

Localscope is the most inter-connected location app on the iPhone that collects and connects local data in uniquely useful ways. Now with on-demand taxi service integrations starting with Uber, Localscope lets its users book a ride to a place found in any of the top 20 location services in just a couple of taps.

Apps Made in India


We are proud to share that Apple has featured Localscope and Numerics in their special “Made in India” apps list on the iPhone and iPad App Store in India. The list includes top apps, games, popular services, hit Bollywood music and movies.

Everyone at Cynapse is incredibly excited with this feature and we want to take this opportunity to encourage entrepreneurs in the India – with the world’s fastest growing startup scene, to join the app economy.

The Indian Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi recently launched his ambitious plan to make India a global hub for manufacturing goods ranging from cars, satellites, software and more through his “Make in India” campaign. At Cynapse, we feel the app economy presents a huge opportunity and making apps in India should undeniably be a part of Make in India.
