Party Rocking at SXSW: Glomper Events Mobile App Launches to Help Find the Hottest Party, Event or Meet-Up Nearby

Glomper's Lifestream Lets SXSW Attendees Get the Full 411 on Photos and Conversations Happening Around the Hottest Events During the Conference; App Will Come Pre-Populated With an Extensive List of SXSW Events

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Mar 9, 2012) - SXSW 2012 -- Glomper Events, (www.glomper.com), the free mobile app that gives anyone the ability to create, find and follow the best events, meet-ups, and parties in their area, launches today at SXSW. It's the first app to centralize all the need-to-know details about any event, with photos, conversations, comments, and interactions available all in one place through its "lifestream" feature. Glomper eliminates the need to search all across social networks for information on specific events as it presents that information in one place, via both mobile app and website, through integration with Facebook Connect.

At SXSW, attendees who download Glomper from the iTunes app store or Android Market will have access to complete listings of all the parties and events happening throughout the week at the conference. In addition, they'll be able to find where their friends are headed, see all the photos, conversations and comments from specific parties, and see heat maps of where the action is nearby.

"Social media plays a huge role in our online and offline social lives -- that's how we hear about events, conferences, meet-ups; decide which clubs, restaurants, bars are the best; what parties are going on, if it's rocking or if it's a dud -- and for the busy social butterfly, there's currently no way to track it all in one place -- instead we're forced to scour our social networks for information and piece it all together ourselves," said Alexander Borodich, CEO of Glomper. "Glomper Events is the perfect mobile app for everyone with an active social life, who likes to explore new places, and meet new people -- we want to bring the engagement of social media to their offline world, and what better place to launch than at SXSW."

While people can see pictures and comments from parties and events on a variety of social networks, they still have to put a lot of the pieces together to understand how the party went, who was there, and if everyone had a good time.

Glomper Events has a streamlined, highly-engaging interface that makes socializing and party planning easy and fun. Some of the unique features Glomper Events offers include:

  • See a full lifestream of one event -- including all the pictures, comments, tags, and conversations happening there -- all in one central place
  • Glomper Events works in offline mode too so users will never miss out
  • An easy-to-use interactive map so people can see where their friends are hanging out, join them or suggest an alternative option, so they can better plan their outing
  • Uses Facebook Connect, allowing anyone to share pictures and post seamlessly

Glomper is the only app that gives users real-time info on the parties, meet-ups and events they want to go to. It lets them create and track events, and when they invite their friends to join in the Glomper network, they can easily see where the action is -- what hotspots their friends are headed to, what pictures they are posting, who's commenting and if they are having a good time.
