Search without the clutter

Hotel rooms are like underwear. They’re plentiful, usually clean, and not something you want to share with a stranger. But here’s the difference. You can always find a pair of underwear, even if they’re balled up under the bed or hiding in the bathroom. Hotels, however, have the ability to vanish completely. One minute they’re everywhere and then when you really need one, they’re gone. What’s up with that?

And here’s another thing. How come you can only find burger joints when you want a steak—or pasta when you really want seafood? It’s just one of life’s mysteries, like the ingredients in an American cheese slice or what the Queen carries in her purse. Nobody knows. We know what you’re thinking. Ever heard of Google? Actually, yeah. We have.

The thing with Google and all the other locator toys out there is that they can’t help you when you don’t know what you don’t know. You know you’re hungry, but you have no idea there’s a pastry shop in town just two blocks away. And neither do the other guys.

Then there’s the junk. Seventeen reviews from people who don’t like the décor at McDonald’s. Vegans dumping on carnivores, foodies trashing blue plate specials and hipsters dissing everyone left standing. Here are some other things you probably don’t care about: the guy who hates a restaurant because his date never came back from the bathroom, the woman who trashes a hotel because they evicted her four chihuahuas, and people who complain that a bowling alley’s too noisy. Nope, we don’t care about that stuff either.

Here are the only two things that matter when you’re hungry, bored, or tired. What is it, and how far do I have drag my sorry ass to get there? That’s it. And you want to know everything that’s close by, not just the businesses who paid to jump the queue or got there by posting fake reviews. How are you ever going to discover the weird, the wonderful, and the downright unforgettable if you only ever get to see the tip of the ad-driven iceberg?

So, here’s the deal. We don’t know why you can never find a hotel when the tank’s running on fumes and there’s a storm coming. We don’t know why the best dining experiences happen in the most out-of-the-way restaurants. We don’t know how you can be in a big city and can’t find a single thing to do. Instead of answering all those questions, we just came up with a simple one of our own. Why can’t an app just tell me instantly what I want to know without all the clutter?

Finding the answer took a bit longer. Years in fact. But it really is possible to create an app that can give you a list of businesses based on where you’re standing and how far you want to go. With no ads, no reviews and no ratings. Just lightning fast results. For obvious reasons, we called it Finalee, as in, “finally” no crap.

Finalee is for people who don’t want the clutter. Those who prefer an aisle seat on the plane. Drinkers of single-malt whiskey. People who still listen to albums instead of playlists. Everyone who knows not to mix plaids and stripes and appreciates that less is always more. Most of all, Finalee is for anyone who ever searched for something to do and crossed the international date line to find a movie theatre “near me”.

If you want to keep track of where you’ve been, you can do that. If you want to get more information about a business, you can do that, too. What you can’t do is sing the first two bars of “Take Me Out to the Ballpark” while you’re waiting for the results to appear. We’ve tried it. Can’t be done. So, why wait?

Even Lamborghini’s made a few tweaks over the years, so if we’ve left anything out, we’d love to hear about it. Nicely. Add a business if it fits into our three categories or let us know if something’s gone belly-up. We want Finalee to be as accurate as we can make it and luckily, adding more content will never slow it down. Seriously fast, ridiculously simple. Finalee.
