New Ask Mobile Application Launched

Reuters and the Wall Street Journal have broken the story early. Ask has launched a new GPS-powered mobile application that contains content from Citysearch and Evite (and other IAC properties in the future). In my quick demo of the phone I was impressed with its many features and capabilities. But the most interesting and impressive aspects of it from my point of view involved the integration your contacts, the application’s content and tools and GPS: the capacity to send my location information very simply to many people simultaneously through my contact list.

I’ll have more to say Monday when I’ve had a chance to play with the phone a bit more. I have a few screenshots on my personal blog Screenwerk.

Postscript: Ask has now posted details about the service in Ask Mobile GPS: The Next Level of Local.
