Ajo is a location-based mobile app that helps people discover and review places, local businesses, as well as share personal opinion and experiences about these places. As expected, these places include where to eat, hotels, tourist attractions and any point of interest.

While Ajo automatically detects user’s location, recommends places and things to do within their proximity, users can also recommend places that are not yet available on the app.

Ajo will particularly come in handy especially when people find themselves in unfamiliar terrain. But considering that its biggest competitor in that realm is the ‘almighty’ Google Maps, it will be interesting to see how Ajo can  differentiate itself to gain market advantage.

Ajo is currently available for both Android and iOS. You can also visit the website to learn more about the app
