New Ask Mobile App. Launched

Ask has launched a new GPS-powered mobile application that contains content from Citysearch and Evite (and other IAC properties in the future). In the quick overview I received, I was impressed with its many features and capabilities. But the most interesting and impressive aspects of it from my point of view involve the integration your contacts, the application’s content and tools and GPS, allowing me to send my location information very simply to many people simultaneously through my contact list.

In a certain way the current (and intended future) integration of these IAC brands and content under the Ask mobile application is more successful than anything IAC has yet been able to do online.

Here are a few screenshots:
