The evolution of event recommendation

Artists & Musicians Commentary Drink Food

Remember newspapers? We do, but vaguely. From what we can remember they had a section that featured events happening around town that day/week. Usually the events were served family-style: a farmer’s market here, a library picnic there. To appeal to younger demographics, alternative newspapers started popping up in major cities. Each issue was usually inundated... more »

We have to admit, we didn’t want to build this feature…at all. But some users are more private than others and wanted an option to block certain individuals from seeing what they are doing tonight. That’s fair, sometimes. So now you are able to block an individual. Once you block an individual, you cannot see... more »

The “black hole” of notifications

Written by doingtonight on Jun 18, 2012

Update: We are now testing email notifications! Isn’t it really annoying when you “ask” someone what they are doing tonight and they don’t respond (in the app)? What about if you tag someone? Well, it’s probably because the user doesn’t allow doingtonight to send them push notifications. Unfortunately, many other apps abuse the privilege. But for... more »

It’s the best thing…ever.  Now you can tell people that you “like” what they are doing tonight. It’s a great way to give props to people that are doing interesting things. Click on... more »

About Us News Press Releases Product

“What are you doing tonight?” is a popular question. Especially if you have FOMO. But how popular? A search on twitter shows that every few seconds someone asks what people are doing tonight – all day, everyday.  But with so much going on in Facebook and Twitter feeds, it’s no wonder that you don’t catch other... more »

About Us News Product

What a week! There is no better feeling than inviting people to use a product our team has been so excited about, for so long. We felt an enormous sense of pride (and nervousness) when the app hit the app store and the users started to sign up. But we quickly regained focus on building... more »
