Life in a city can get boring after a couple of years. Malls, cinemas, restaurants, beaches – the experience of visiting those places gets predictable real quick. The new outlets that open up at regular intervals usually won’t veer far away when it comes to being a fresh concept either.

For me, local events ended up adding variety to the mix. One day it’s a stand up comedy and next day it’s a Twitter unconference (definitely no Operas and musicals though!). There seems to be a lot of them happening all over the place, but as usual, with plenty comes the problem of discovery.

Calester is hard at work to help you and your friends find events around you that could be so much fun. Does the app tackle the problem of event discovery effortlessly? Let’s go check it out!

Weddings are some of the most memorable occasions we attend, whether you’re participating or merely in attendance and, if it’s your special day, you’ll likely want to save the memories of the day forever. Lots of people hire wedding photographers to capture these moments officially but friends and family will inevitably still shoot their own, most likely on a smartphone. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could get them all, and aggregate them into an online album for you to access later?

That’s where uSnap.us comes in. uSnap.us allows you to “see your wedding through your guest’s eyes” by getting them to download an app which, in turn, takes their images and publishes them to an online gallery. A very interesting concept, uSnap.us could be a fantastic way to capture any event from a number of perspectives without having to chase after attendees to get ahold of shots afterwards. (more…)

Effortless and meetings are two words that don’t go well together. They are contradict with each other so much, they would make the term “effortless meetings” an oxymoron. Even with the help of enterprise grade calendering and scheduling apps, planning an all hands meeting might be a tiresome process.

A lot of Web 2.0 apps have tried to solve the issue of scheduling. Meetin.gs is the newest one among them. The web app screams about making all your scheduling tasks simply effortless, breaking organizational boundaries. Does it really deliver?

We get invited to events and parties all the time. In most cases, the organizers would be friends or peers and an invite would land via email. But what if there are some awesome events that are happening close to your crib and you don’t know about it at all. Say for example, an app bloggers convention happening two blocks down the road that’s open to all.
