We’ve had an Extreme Makeover!

If you haven’t already noticed, OurFaves is sporting a new look these days. We’ve shed some excess features and trimmed down our focus in order to improve your user experience, provide more context, and create a more trusted source of the best in your city.

We’ve been listening closely to all your feedback over the last 18 months and have been working towards creating the best OurFaves you’ve ever seen – one that gets you sharing and connecting with the city’s best in a way that’s fast, fresh and fun.

We’re excited about this first phase of our multi-stage redesign – and hope you will be too! You’ll notice these big changes:

· ‘Faves’ are now reviews, allowing you to rate places on a five-point scale and talk more freely about what you love (and don’t love) about a business.

· You now have the ability to find the best places by different categories, neighbourhoods, and social groups. So you can search for top restaurants in The Annex, and grab a Foodie’s opinion on where to go too.

· There’s a strong focus on finding and knowing the best through featuring and promoting local expert opinions, not only user generated content. Craving a juicy organic burger? Eco-Friendly experts like Kerry Helston, for instance, are bringing their top picks to the table.

And there’s more to come. The second phase of the redesign will allow you to group your reviews into lists – so stay tuned over the next few weeks for this new feature.

We hope all this, plus a very stylish new look, gives you something to write home about. Or, we hope, write us about. So take a look around, get acquainted with the new OurFaves, and get in touch. Send your kudos, comments, and criticism to us at admin@ourfaves.com, or use the Feedback button on the site. We can’t wait to hear from you!
