AGFG iPhone App is #1 Lifestyle Download and is Presented by Australia’s 1st (and Only) guyPhone at GFWS Exhibitions

Friday 10 June, 2011:
The AGFG iPhone app officially launched at the opening of the Good Food & Wine Show (GFWS) in Melbourne last weekend, attended by nearly 30,000 foodies. An innovative web based company the Australian Good Food and Travel Guide (AGFG) demonstrated how to use their new iPhone app with Australia’s 1st and ONLY guyPhone. You can watch a YouTube video of the guyPhone here.

Jane Jones from maze explains, “It’s been less than a week since the launch of the AGFG iPhone app and maze has already seen an increase in hits to our site.” Award winning restaurant, maze Melbourne by Gordon Ramsay, is amazed at the positive impact.

Within 72 hours of the AGFG iPhone app release and guyPhone promotions at the GFWS, over 10,000 people had downloaded the app and the number of users is steadily increasing. The app is receiving instant popularity. Already #1 download in the Lifestyle category, and joining the ranks of #15 in the weekend Top 25 apps, the AGFG iPhone app is listed overall as #10 iPhone Featured app.

The AGFG iPhone app is the most comprehensive resource for finding establishments and is available for free on the iPhone App Store. It includes ‘near me’ quick locality searches and is great for comparing prices, seeing photos, as well as reading and writing customer reviews. You can even vote for your favourite places online or on your iPhone.

The AGFG guyPhone is a walking, talking, lifesize iPhone that shakes hands, kisses babies and most importantly, shows Australia how to use the new AGFG iPhone app.

Marketing Executive for GFWS Natalie Middleton is seriously impressed, “Having the AGFG guyPhone at the GFWS displaying the free iPhone app is an entertaining showcase of modern technology at play in promoting the good food industry.”

All are welcome to stop by an AGFG exhibit to meet the guyPhone and try out the iPhone app – if you haven’t downloaded it already.

Est. in 1977, the AGFG is Australia’s single most comprehensive rating authority and they are taking their show on the road. It turns out the AGFG guyPhone is a foodie and is now counting down to Sydney July 1-3 and the nationwide Good Food & Wine Show exhibitions.
