Being part of a hyper-connected world ironically now means a greater chance of missing out on things. While there are loads of organizational apps on the market, there are very few that prioritize to help you find the best events to spend your time at, with the friends and type of people you want to hang out with most.
Joey - Takes You Out is a crowd-sourced event-finding go-to app. It recommends events based on your interests and passions and connects you to event participants who are your friends in real life, and also with like-minded new people.
To begin, Joey asks that you log in with Facebook, because it’s then able to source the most relevant results for you. Choose the city in which you are most likely to party in or visit often. A neat hack is the option of resetting your local if you’re in a new area and looking for something to do. Joey then pulls up a list of friends that you would maybe be interested in going with and shows you the events that are happening, which can range from concerts to lectures.
The second component of Joey encourages you to scope the crowd that will be there ahead of time. The event is broken down into the number of guys and girls who have RSVP’d yes and what their interests are. If someone catches your eye, you can see if and how you’re connected on Facebook and take it from there. This makes it easy to hang out with old friends and meet new ones.
Joey is a gorgeous and intuitive app that opens up doors and introduces you to people that you otherwise wouldn’t have crossed paths with, all while helping strengthening your existing friendships.
