If you’re always busy on the weekends, attending festivals, shows and other events then you might be interested in Now., an application designed to share and discover events that are happening right now (as if you hadn’t guessed). The platform uses your iOS device’s location and fetches relevant goings on, as well as giving you the opportunity to share your location and media of whatever it is you’re doing.
The service clearly works best in cities, and cities where there is already an established population using the service. Your mileage may vary, but there’s no denying the concept is a sound one. This app attempts to bridge the gap between a friends-only Facebook update that might read “At the Daft Punk show!” with a suitably blurry photo into an update that other people can easily discover or view.
The platform also maintains a list of events, which means you can then crowd-source images and talk to other people who attended the same events as you. It could be a concert, a flashmob, a grand opening – anything where a lot of people might congregate. Your experience with Now. will be vastly improved with others nearby who are using the service, so if you like it and want to get more out of it spread the love and tell a friend to download it too.
- Find out what’s going on nearby, or what has happened recently.
- Share your whereabouts, images and talk to others using the service.
- Ideal for small, private get togethers as well as large public events.
