Eventblimp, Inc has released an app that collects events from friends and event promoters and produces a searchable database from aggregate events from Facebook, Meetup, Eventbrite, Bandsintown, SeatGeek, and Eventful. Find an event you like? You can also easily share the listing with everyone via your favorite social networking sites. You can filter your search by type of event, location, date and time, cost, friends attending, or explore events pinned to a map of your area.
Eventblimp is available in the App Store now, for free.
With an ever burgeoning selection of Calendar and Travel apps, Time to Enjoy sets out to be different by turning the calendar function into a search engine for events.
Powered by eventful.com and Tribune Media Services, the app provides event details within the US, Canada and Europe, the app allows users to search for local events, all via their current location or by entering a city of their choice. Various categories are searchable such as museum events, local attractions, music focused or family targeted. A search radius of anything from walking distance to a 50 mile car drive means there should be something for a short trip or an all day excursion.
Users can learn various details about upcoming events such as timings and venues, as well as see trailers for movies and even purchase tickets. An alert function ensures nothing is forgotten about.
Knowing what’s going on near you is one of the great things about location aware apps. Eventster does exactly that with all manners of events, from concerts and festivals to community events and the humble craft sale.
The freely available app allows users to browse popular events nearby, while up-voting occassions to encourage others to participate. It’s possible to filter events according to keywords, location, date and category, with the chosen event easily added to iCalendar for later reference.
The app promises 600,000 events in nearly every city in North America, as well as many large cities in Europe, so there should be something here for everyone.
With Summer here and plenty of events out there, Eventster should prove very useful to those planning what to do with their free time.
Check out the video below detailing how things work.
We’ve all been there. Had that moment where it’s just impossible to find those precious tickets for that exciting event. It was placed in that careful spot in the house but somehow it’s gone missing just in time for when it’s most needed. Reliance on a piece of paper is annoying.
Eventbrite gets that which is why their app enables users to quickly access their Eventbrite tickets and event information all without the need for paper versions.
Attendees can access details for all of their upcoming events to see precisely what they have planned. They can then share that information with friends and also contact the event organizer with any last-minute questions. Map directions and other useful information can be similarly accessed quickly through the app.
It’s a very useful idea and one that I hope will spread elsewhere. It’d be very useful for other ticketed events such as concerts or sporting events. Hopefully Eventbrite have started us all on the path to a paperless future.
Sociable Facebook users will have already noticed that the official Facebook app for the iPhone doesn’t offer any events interaction. Fortunately there’s now an app that offers exactly that. Friends Events allows its users to check out exactly what events their friends are attending, view the events that they have been invited to and RSVP right from within the app.
The actual interface allows for users to view just the basic text description or a map view so that it’s simple to work out exactly where the event is being held. Checking out which friends are going to which events is similarly easy to do. Things like that make Friends Events ideal for those who prefer to deal with Facebook events while on the move rather than in front of a web browser.
Friends Events comes in two varieties. There’s an ad-supported free version or for $0.99, users can enjoy an ad-free experience. It’s out now.
The Hotlist is a geo-social aggregator that finds what’s going on around you without you having to do anything at all.
From the press release: “The app aggregates public info from its users Facebook accounts to populate a Google map with events. It then shows them anyone they know who has RSVP’d to a specific event, the guy-to-girl ratio, Yelp reviews of specific locations and any live Tweets to give insight into the pulse of the crowd at a venue or event.”
With already 160,000 people on board, and Blackboard and Android users coming soon, The Hotlist is coming together to be the end-all source for what to do on a weekend night. That is, if you like crowds.
All you have to do is get yourself a Facebook account and pick up the app for free. So go on, have some fun!
