"eventseeker offers one of the most comprehensive event discovery apps on the market," said Fraser Campbell, CEO of wcities. "By syncing with social networks of all smartphones, eventseeker offers a more comprehensive view of local activities and answers the question 'what are we doing this weekend, and who else is coming?' We are excited to bring this experience to all smartphone and tablet users and provide more personalized, social-based recommendations."

Finding local events that appeal to your taste is tough when you don't know all of your options. eventseeker's approach to discovery is unique in that its in-house human content curators comb event offerings in nearly every city to populate the app's hyper-localized and highly accurate database. Organized by category and date, the app also recommends more choices and a greater selection of events through partnerships with more than 150 ticketing agencies.

eventseeker delivers a custom experience by providing the option to sync with your Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Spotify, Last.fm, Rdio and Pandora accounts. The app then utilizes device libraries and social networks to tailor recommendations, suggesting not only events, but also which friends to invite based on mutual likes and preferences. For example, eventseeker syncs with your music library to let you know when your favorite artists will be in town. So if you're a big fan of Mumford & Sons, eventseeker will alert you when they'll be playing near you, and which of your friends might be attending. The app also provides recommendations based on your tastes to introduce you to new artists.

No longer do you have to go out and search for information on what is going on in your city, eventseeker delivers details directly to you. With eventseeker, you can see which events your friends using the app are going to, or want to go, and purchase tickets through the app. It even allows you to create a calendar and follow your favorite artists, comedians and sports teams to receive notifications when upcoming events are announced in your area. You and your friends will never miss an event again.

eventseeker also is currently featured in two Essential App Collections on the Apple App Store, On the Town and Apps for the Weekend. For more information, visit http://eventseeker.com.
