By GrapeVine partnered with CYJP
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Don’t let your Judaism be defined for you! Use GrapeVine to choose your own Jewish adventure instead! Similar to Pandora and Netflix, GrapeVine is your lifelong, personal virtual concierge that suggests Jewish opportunities (people, events, articles, content) that you might like based on your interests, friends, life stage, and geography. GrapeVine is adaptive and customizable, allowing you to simply navigate your Jewish journey as you evolve, move, and change.
This mobile app was helped made possible by the generous support of the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation in partnership with the ROI Community, the Natan Fund, the UJA-Federation of New York and the Ryzman Family Foundation.
GrapeVine launched its website (www.grape-vine.com) in January 2012, and released its complementary mobile app in December 2012 in partnership with the Council of Young Jewish Presidents. GrapeVine’s mobile app introduces a number of powerful new tools and features to enhance your ability to find the right opportunities for you. Now fully integrated with Facebook, you can easily identify what your friends are doing. With one touch, you can bookmark or register for opportunities, save them to your calendar, and share them with your friends. GrapeVine also provides you with an easy way to quickly provide feedback on opportunities you’ve selected.
What's New in Version 1.03
This new release includes a number of feature enhancements, including:
* Native support for the iPhone 5 screen dimensions
* A new search option on the primary search tab that enables searching by “interest”, e.g., searching by Community Service, Arts & Entertainment, etc.
Amazing app connecting Jews
I was a little hesitant about this app at first- I wasn't expecting the non-denominational, inclusive and accepting atmosphere that it actually provides. When you register, you check off the different communities you identify with and what your interests are. Instantly you are brought a list of amazing events all around your community. I downloaded the app an hour ago and have already registered for two events. I can't wait to see the number and variety of events grow as the app does. Great stuff!
Seems to care only about NYC. I'm in Texas.
There is Jewish life outside NYC.
