What can you use the app for?

Wherevent.com helps internet users stay on top of upcoming events in their city. The application is rather simple and provides user with links to events along with when the event begins and where. Users can post online events as well, although the site is focused on offline events. City tags are presented to the user along with a city name search to help the user find specific areas. Event pages include embedded Google Maps, a description, organizer name, social network sharing tools, images and comments. A list of Facebook images is also included to show which users will be participating. The user can also filter events by date, with options including whenever, today, tomorrow, next seven days, next 30 days and later. Wherevent is available in English and French languages.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Wherevent hasn’t received much attention, and it’s not hard to see why. The application serves a basic purpose but lacks when it comes to features. There has been mention of the addition of mobile app versions, however those are still not available. The site’s city search feature seems to be bugged as well. When the user enters a city, a red message appears saying the city was not found even if it is listed in the city tags or appears in the most active cities area below the search bar.

What are the differences to other apps?

Wherevent is focused entirely on local events. There are many other applications that serve a similar purpose, however Wherevent doesn’t have as much to offer in the way of features. It provides more space for information than some sites do however this is not so helpful when it is difficult to find events on the site. There are no categories, either, so the user is forced to scroll down through an ongoing list of events for each city they search.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Wherevent is pretty straightforward. The user sees a list of events that stretch down the homepage with a collection of city tags and a search bar to the right. The event pages include plenty of space for descriptions and other details. This might also be due to the fact that the site includes very few features. The user must do a lot of legwork to browse through events to find specific types of events. The color scheme is pleasant, but does little to remedy the lack of features.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can browse Wherevent as soon as they visit the site. There are no subscriptions required and the user doesn’t have to supply any information to create an account. Accounts are not needed, and it is easy to see why. Requiring an account would be too involved considering the site’s lack of features. The user is given access to a location based search tool and that’s pretty much it. An account would be overkill unless more features were added.

What does it cost to use the application?

Wherevent is available to all visitors for free. There is no account required and the site does not charge a subscription fee for its services. This is really as it should be because Wherevent has little to offer beyond a simple event search tool. Users can share events on social networking profiles. The user can return as often as they like and perform as many searches as they want each time they visit for free.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Wherevent might serve as a supplementary event search tool. Users hosting events can have theirs posted to the site to encourage more participants or attendees. Other than that, the site really has little to offer. Users who also have Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Google Plus accounts can appreciate the sharing tools built into the site. The site would be unreliable as a main advertising venue for event organizers and marketers.
