Soon - It's Happening

Never miss something awesome.
We were tired of missing that sale, live stream, AMA, pre-order, show premiere, birthday party or happy hour. When we find a great event, often all we want is a simple nudge letting us know when something is starting. Adding those events to a calendar can be a pain, so we built Soon, the easiest way to share and find events — real and digital.
Soon makes it easy to:
- Discover events featured by the Soon community
- Get a notification when an event goes live
- Build a community of followers by climbing the Leaderboard
- Start a conversation with friends so all the planning can happen in one place
BEST OF SXSW: If you're going to Austin this month, follow the "Best of SXSW" account for all the latest and greatest events.
Coolest way to plan literally anything
I've been searching for an easy way to make reminders and schedule events with friends, and Soon is awesome since it's super easy to make events and keep track of when things are happening. Plus, I can discover cool stuff around me and find out about things that I would never see otherwise, which makes me feel cool
Not only am I not a fan of signing up prior to getting a feel of the app but to top it off it kept glitching out. Not only was I not liking the automatic follows but as I tried adjusting the settings it kept crashing. Signed out and rebooted app in hopes it would fix the problem however now it won't let me sign-in at all. Crashes each time I do so. The concept seemed awesome but definitely needs much more work! Perhaps after a few updates I'll give it another go. For now, not the best. Don't waste your time.
It is a bit like Instagram and twitter, but the feel and layout makes it cooler than both of them combined! I recommend this app before Instagram, and any other social media apps out there.
