Good but some improvement needed
Cool interface and design, but there really needs to be a map on the home page to find businesses as opposed to scrolling through pages of logos or names.
Colu app missing useful category organization
App is poorly organized. There is no good way to see all restaurants or clothing stores or anything by category. Instead, you side scroll through all business types by proximity, trying to guess full name from first 6-8 letters of truncated title. Each biz has a category, but you can’t even use it as a search term! Also map with pins for business locations would be helpful as well.
A great app to promote local businesses. It’s easy to operate and beautiful, highly recommended!
