The app also allows users to search for restaurants by city, area, or cuisine and find other fun including bars and nightclubs, sightseeing spots, spas, casinos, recreation activities and other fun and interesting places in Kenya.
According to Alix Grubel the director of Kenyabuzz, “This is just the first version of the app, it simply gives the user information. But the next versions of the app will be interactive in the sense that they will allow people to check into the places, find their friends, make comments, review places, upload pictures and earn badges”.
