Medallions and Community Buttons

Medallions (or category) search has now been moved into the map area. This makes it easier to search and navigate by keeping everything in the map.

Also the medallions are now clearly labeled below and the on/off functionality is easily recognizable. Try them out yourself. We have...

  • Hotspots (What's new in the city - restaurants, bars, shops)
  • Nightlife (bars, clubs, lounges)
  • Restaurants (search by cuisine and then filter by attributes)
  • Shopping (lots and lots of shopping in NYC)
  • Hotels (search by star rating)
  • Recreation (salons, spas, theaters, gyms, etc)
Also, on the right side of the map, you will see community buttons as shown below.

Use these 3 buttons to discover places through your friends and the UpNext community.

- Friends: Shows reviews, favorites and places marked by your friends

- Community: Shows the latest reviews, top favorites and popular places from the UpNext community based on the area of the map.

- My Profile: Shows all the places you have marked. Your own personally annotated guide to the city.

Vik was the lead on getting these medallions done while Robin was the creative force on the sleek look and design. Gotta give credit where credit is due. Hope you enjoy and find them useful.
