New App Helps Travelers Find Best Local Events
Each week, we host a Twitter chat where travel-minded individuals come together to talk about exploring the world. No matter the topic, one theme always seems to emerge: Avid travelers search for ways to immerse themselves in a destination. Whether through food, music, or culture, we are all interested in learning how to do as the locals do, something that just got a whole lot easier with wcities’ new app, eventseeker.
Available on iOS, Windows 8, and Google devices, eventseeker taps into smartphone users’ social networks to recommend events based on location, interests, and the interests of friends. Want to see your favorite performer at a concert or a comedy show? Attend a festival or a sporting event? Find all that and more right at your fingertips with eventseeker. We love the “My Events” section, which is personalized based on your device library and social network preferences and includes recommendations. Even better, local wcities editors curate the content, so the suggestions come with a personal touch.
Another favorite feature? With eventseeker you can create a calendar and follow artists, comedians, and sports teams. The app will notify you when upcoming events for the performers you follow are announced, making it easier than ever to keep track of your favorite teams and entertainers.
Of course, letting users know about events in the area is only part of eventseeker’s appeal. The app has also partnered with more than 150 ticketing agencies so you can purchase tickets through eventseeker, too. And all our fellow travel addicts out there will be happy to know eventseeker’s event guide encompasses 2,000 cities. Your opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture just got a whole lot bigger!
You can sync your eventseeker app with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Spotify, Last.fm, Rdio, and Pandora accounts. Download it directly from your smartphone’s app store or visit the website for more information.
