    "If your looking for an app that finds events near you, then give Eventbrite a try. I had an easy time looking for local events and you can show your friends which events you plan on attending. The best use I got from the app was when I was traveling, I could just pull it up and see what was going on near me."

    "Field Trip is a hit or miss app for me. It could potentially be great for finding things close by to do but it doesn't seem to work right. The options it returns rarely have anything to do with your search criteria and sometimes the location isn't even right. It could be a phenomenal app for finding fun things to do near you via the android platform but it just isn't there yet."

    "The All Events in City app feels like a one-stop-shop with all of the latest gatherings and events in your location. It's free, you don't have to pay for anything and you can see friends that you have if they will attend a specific event. The question right now is that if your friends do actually use the app. If nothing else, it's a good way to keep track of the ongoing and upcoming events in your city."

    "Splendid! Less work for me! Nearify makes finding near by events very easy and lets me have access to information I wouldn't normally find. I have already attended things through Nearify that I wouldn't have known existed! So thank you Nearify! I will be using you a lot."

    "It's pretty good as an extension of the Eventful website (I still get notifications for TNA live events. 7 years later). In any case, it does a reasonable job of gathering events in my area, and based on my likes. Most of the info is fairly up to date, though I found a few errors regarding the actual location of the event. Overall though, it works pretty good, and I like it."

    "I love how easy it is to not only find things, but add them to your calendar so you don't forget to actually go! I've found a ton of new events to go to thanks to this app. I'm hoping they spread out to include areas besides just the ones they have, though."
