New York, New York – Available today, the app Nuqaq offers busy on-the-go users and travelers a quick way to discover local events happening nearby, right now. More importantly, Nuqaq also offers iPhone users a way to socialize in real-time with other people at the same event by sharing photos and ideas through semi-anonymous chat. At its core, Nuqaq reconnects people with their local community through better technology-augmented shared experiences.
After logging into Nuqaq with a Facebook account or by creating a Nuqaq-only account, users can browse the closest local activities and music gatherings happening within an hour. Tapping an event takes users to our “Detailed Explorer” screen where users can find (and share via Twitter, Facebook, and email) more information about a particular event. A unique UX design allows users to swipe the “Detailed Explorer” to discover events occurring immediately before or after the currently displayed event, a useful feature for finding new activities that fit within a busy user’s schedule.
Beyond event discovery, Nuqaq offers “bulletin boards” for users to chat and share photos with other event participants in real-time. By offering a clean and safe way to socialize with others at an event, Nuqaq encourages users to discover diverse new people and activities through shared experiences. Nuqaq also supports user-created events to build communities and experiences around events we didn’t capture or that are important on a personal level. Discovery of new activities and diverse people can help users rediscover the joy of serendipity.
