I’m terrible at billiards anyhow...

I searched pool table to try to find a local spot with a pool table. It brought up a place in Logansville Georgia that sold pool tables, and a place in Breaton England that had a free pool table on Wednesday’s. Well, today is Wednesday, but I live in Louisville, Kentucky. So I don’t think I’ll make it before last call.
I really hope that this app helps people to find exciting nightlife that they are looking for nearby. Some suggestions, there are a lot of repeat events for each category, that’s annoying. And then a news feed that is basically just the same as opening Facebook. For the feed, you should make it only people that you follow so you can choose to see who is talking about nightlife events in particular. And if a business has any details in their about section, or makes a post like “free pool tables on Wednesday” then hopefully only the nearby places will pop up. I would be surprised if a single bar in Louisville doesn’t have a single bit of info about a pool table on there pages. Anyway. Keep it up, hopefully this app lives up to its potential. Cheers!

It’s got potential

Mostly all events are facebook events these days, but the interface has always been buried on mobile. I like what it does so far, and I’m sure it will improve with time.

An app like this begs for an iPad specific interface though. It’s tragic this doesn’t have one. I hope you’ll consider adding one, with support for landscape, drag n drop, and multitasking. This app would be great for creating events on a nice big screen! You could expand support for calendars by adding a month view to help with event planning, etc.

I get that this is probably very useful in a pinch from the phone, but I prefer to plan ahead whenever possible, so it would be nice to do that on a more comfortable screen.

Notification settings are limited

This app is exactly what I'm looking for, I needed an app for events outside of the facebook app. However, it sorely needs expanded notification settings. You have no control over whether events in your area show up in the badge app icon, and although I have banner notifications enabled, I have no control over which types of notifications get a banner. Options to help filter invites and event suggestions would really improve the quality of this app.
