    "I kept hearing from my friend that I was missing out on awesome yoga classes nearby. I could not understand why I was never hearing about these. Enter Eventbrite! I now never miss a class. I even get recommendations as to other events I would like based off of the events I am attending now thanks to this app!"

    "DoStuff feels like an exclusive club that if you're not cool enough you can't get in. It seems like the app is just limited to a few dozen cities right now and you're out of luck when you are not in one of them. The app looks modern enough and feels updated enough, but it is just so limited right now on the places it caters that prevents me in giving this one a good review."

    "Me and my family are always looking for new things to do. We do not like to drive hours away to find something. I recently downloaded Time to Enjoy. This app has helped us find nearby events that my whole family enjoys. I have not posted my own event but it is nice that I can if I ever needed too."

    "Too many times I've missed out on fun events or places that are an arms length distance away from me. Too often, I'll discover my favorite comedian was in town only 2 weeks earlier and I never had a clue. I wish there was some sort of organizer to let me know of such matters, otherwise I have to rely on getting lucky and stumbling on an ad. The app, All Events in City fills that role phenomenally! I'm so happy this app exists now. Now its much easier to figure something fun to do spontaneously. Also useful on vacation!"

    "Great app for finding things you enjoy and meeting new people. It could be greatly improved as far as interface. For example, messages should be separate from the "notifications" section. Also, the notifications themselves are broken down by each group. This is fine, but you should be able to set notifications consistently across all groups, should you want to (i.e., not having to individually change every group's notification settings). "
