Pie for Pi Day

Every year on March 14th the world celebrates Pi, one of the most recognized and important mathematical constants in history, and the only appropriate way to honor this mathematical triumph is with a pie feast.

The official celebrations began at 1:59 pm to symbolize the value sequence of Pi (3.14159).

Nothing sets the mood like some Pi tunes (Yes, it’s a real thing!)

Now Supporting Android

A few weeks ago we announced our completely redesigned iPhone app, and as of today we also support Android. So now you can create and capture rich content to share on your listings right from your phone.

We all know people are going mobile – doing more on their mobile devices, finding information on the go – which means they can go more places. And, as a business owner, you are no different. So we designed our mobile apps to make doing your job easier.

Keeping your location information fresh drives engagement on your listings – in fact, listings with updated pictures receive 247% more clicks.

The new Yext Android app has nearly identical features to the iPhone app, and with them you can:

  • Apply custom filters to your photos

  • Create text posts

  • Share photos and add them to your photo album

  • Save your photos to your PowerListings gallery, to appear on your listings including Yahoo!, MapQuest, and Foursquare

Your customers want to see what separates your business from the competition, and our team of Yextoids made that easier for you. Download the app in the Google Play Store and check out our website for more information.

Bing It On

At Yext, we work directly with some of the best sites on the internet and are always adding new ones to the PowerListings Network, so the most customers possible find your business details. And today we’ve made the PowerListings Network even more powerful by adding Bing.

Bing is one of the largest and most used sources of information online with more than 165 million unique visitors every month. It sets itself apart by the massive number of people searching every day and the quality of its results, on the web and on mobile.
