Devices like the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad are becoming increasingly popular simply due to the fact that they allow users to remain connected to the surrounding world no matter where they are. The great thing about humans is that we are, by nature, a social species who love nothing more than interacting with one another and creating connections that last a life-time. Smartphones and mobile devices have allowed those connections to be made on the move and the UpTo app from Rock City Apps certainly makes that easier.
The UpTo app gives users a chance to view a social stream of upcoming events that are most important to them, the benefit of which means that they never have to miss anything important to them. The upcoming section of the app displays a feed of events that are happening in the near future, with the activity section displaying a feed of events that you are, or have been active in. The user-interface of the app makes it extremely easy to share information and events with custom groups, as well as finding and interacting with social streams.
An app of this nature obviously heavily relies on being able to allow users to connect socially, and it therefore contains the obligatory social sharing options which allows users to share information directly to Twitter and Facebook. The calendar integration also allows users to quickly and easily see just what days are currently socially active, as well as giving users the option to comment on event pages before they actually occur.
UpTo is one of those app that is definitely not going to be for everyone, after all, it’s yet another social networking creation that can just find itself being added to the growing list. On the flip side, it does have distinct advantages over other apps, and the fact that users can monitor and interact with social streams in a simply gorgeous interface means that it is definitely worth checking out, especially considering it’s a free of charge download.
