Party’s on. BYOMusic.
Here’s how it works – you’re hosting a party. You have some jams, but let’s not be responsible for setting the mood the entire time. Let your guests at to the playlist queue by tweeting an artist and song name to your party playlist that you’ve set up on the Fiestafy app! Uses the Spotify API and the Twitter API
This or That? is an Android app that allows users to crowd source decision making. Users snap pictures of two items they are torn on buying and the app will start a poll, allowing friends (or random strangers) to vote/comment. The app also integrates with Twitter (OAuth and tweeting of new polls).
REGULARS uses Apple iBeacon Bluetooth Low Energy technology to help restaurants keep track of their customers and reward customer loyalty.
Here’s how it works: Within minutes of arriving, you’ll automatically receive a welcome prompt to open the app and immediately receive info about that restaurant – you won’t have to select from a list of nearby restaurants – there’s no need to remember to open the app each time, no need to log in or check in. You can unlock deals like free drinks and appetizers based on how many times you’ve visited and see any specials the restaurant is currently offering.
