Find out what's happening in your area with Android app Eventseekr

by Caitlin M. Foyt

If your little brother's coming to town and you're trying to plan something fun to do, Eventseekr might be a helpful resource. If you're looking for a cheap, below-the-radar activity at the last minute, though, you might not be so lucky.

You're not going to find out about drop-in kickball at the local park, your community food truck day or a popular author's book reading at a local bookstore with this app. Eventseekr seems to play it safe by sticking with the well-publicized events that require you to buy tickets and drive across town, each falling into the category of concerts, clubbing & nightlife, festivals and fairs, sporting events, arts & museums or theater.

I would imagine that Eventseekr is most helpful to users who live in a city, where there are always a lot of different events going on. That being said, this app, unfortunately, doesn't have a kind of setting you can use to adjust the range of your search. I live in the massive Los Angeles area, and this app brings up every single event that's happening, whether you can get there in a five-minute walk or a 45-minutes drive. There's almost too much to search through.

The app is well-designed, appealing to the eye. The developers did a great job choosing fonts that are easy to read. Information about time/date/place/ticket prices for happenings are also all accounted for. It's quite easy to find your way around.

Eventseekr takes a long time to load at launch, and it often lags, though. I also noticed that my battery quickly drained while this app was running. Unfortunately, these factors tend to put a crimp in the overall experience of using Eventseekr.
