Almost Ready to Launch | Block

by Tricia Whitlock

Everyone wants to know what events are going on around them and which ones their friends are attending. Block, launching in the next few weeks, lets you do just that. Block is a social events app that helps you find small or large events going on in your city. On Block you can create an open or private event and view events your friends have joined. Once Block gets to know what kind of events you like to attend it will send you a notification when a similar one is posted.

Never again will you not know what to do, because there is always something going on around the Block. Stay tuned- we will shoot out the link when it goes live. Check out the screen shots below in the meantime.
