Finally, a solution for Tampa boredom: Joto
It’s Friday afternoon, you have no plans for the weekend besides the usual same old routine. Enter: Joto. This new app proudly touts the ability to find the nearby happenings you would care most about, based on your interests.
Joto starts by asking for the types of things you’d like to actually attend in the real world. Tags range from electronic music and sushi to yoga and “fun date.” From there, the app keeps a lookout for the things you mentioned, forever.
If you sign up with Facebook, it even makes recommendations of which friends could join you, and finds special deals (free drinks, discounted tickets!). You are able to “star” your favorite events (similar to starring an email) to bring it into a separate view like your personal calendar. Friends can see which events you’ve starred so that you can easily know who is interested in what.
Tell Joto your interests, it finds awesome events for you nearby – and which friends could join. JOin TOgether. Before we are users, we are humans. This is Joto, built for the real-life you.
CURRENTLY AVAILABLE IN TAMPA, FLORIDA. More cities coming soon!
Joto can be downloaded from the iPhone App store or used directly at jotoapp.com for any non-iPhone’ers
