Tap The App

Today I had the pleasure of testing the new TapIN Bay Area’s  iPad App. The app, created by the Bay Area News Group, brings a number of their local partners to tablet form. In addition to the deals, businesses, news stories, gigs and more, the app lets you search the Zvents Media Network for things to do by tapping on a map of the area.

My first impression of the app was that it’s very pretty, and the easy zooming and dragging of the map is going to be intuitive to anyone who’s ever used an iPad. You can find details on the website, or in the Apple store.

In time, we look forward to more apps coming out from our partners focused in relevant, local and interesting entertainment and event listings.

Here’s a screen shot. Click the image to see what happens if you tap that little blue “more” arrow in the middle!

 

P.S. Promoters:

See that orange “sponsored” note in the corner of the top ad in the right rail? That’s what Sponsorship does: it gets your listing right on top!

    Has this actually taken off yet then? Its been nearly 3 months and I don’t feel it has or is that just my opinion?

      Hi Harriett,

      That depends whether you mean the app specifically or Zvents’ events database. The app isn’t one we’ve built so we can’t speak for that, but the Zvents network is growing all the time- we’re over 14 million monthly users in the US alone!
