Post acquisition, Gawbl team will be joining TimesCity’s mobile team. Rather than working independently, the team will now become a part of Timecity and will work on improving its mobile apps.
Gawbl helps users to discover and find restaurants or the places to eat based on their mood. It has developed a unique recommendation engine which understands the user’s mood, location and provides them precise results in a non-listing format.
With the addition of the Gawbl team, we will deliver a truly amazing mobile first user experience to the TimesCity community, said Miten Sampat, Business Head of TimesCity.
Gawbl was founded in January 2013 by Chiragh Kirpalani, at that point it was a mobile-only service and later in April the company aunched an Android app which is now removed from the app store as a part of the deal.
Timescity provides information about the restaurants, pubs and nightlife establishments in Indian metropolitans and popular cities alongwith listing. It also has a ‘Click to Call’ feature which connects users with the establishment directly. It is currently present in 11 Indian cities including Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bangalore and Pune.
