Google, the giant of Internet search has acquired Clever Sense, an application developer for mobiles. The amount paid for this acquisition still remains undisclosed. Clever Sense is quite popular for the Alfred app which is a location based one that recommends restaurants and bars. This app is both iPhone and other smartphones that are powered by the Android operating system.
Clever Sense's CEO and co-founder, Babal Pahlavan says that the company is quite excited in joining Google and they will start an entirely new chapter in serving the world. He also said that the company along with Google will accelerate the efforts to focus more on this vision.
Google serves to connect the local businesses with the potential consumers and its presence across the world will surely bring in a large value to Clever Sense taking it to a larger front of audience. Google has started to strengthen the local offerings since some time and it has acquired Zagat, the publisher of restaurant ratings. Zagat offers the people a comprehensive idea of where to shop, play, stay, drink and eat across the world based on the reviews and ratings.
Discovering the local information is very important for users as well as businesses and so the Clever Sense's acquisition will be quite beneficial to both. The combination of Google and Clever Sense will result in better, intelligent, magical and serendipitous services.
