[prMac.com] Dallas, Texas - Heading to ComicCon? Plan on having an after-work drink with friends? Want to organize a fantastic dinner? Now's the time to check out Search Party. Created by emerging Texas-based developer 5 Brand Ventures, Search Party is the solution to all your event-related woes. With its user-friendly, streamlined design and variety of helpful features, Search Party takes the guesswork out of planning meet-ups and coordinating events, even on-the-go.
Inspired by its founder's own experience of missing out on a great tailgating party because of inefficient communication and coordination, Search Party is the ideal app for getting friends together, no matter what the circumstance. "What started out as a simple idea has turned into a mission to create a mobile application for people who love attending gatherings," co-founder Stephanie Brand says as she talks about the app's release. "Because our family loves to arrange barbecues, dinners and other social gatherings, we decided to build an app that will make it easy for everyone to get together, have fun, and share memories."
From casual coffee meet-ups and girls' nights out to large conventions and off-the-grid camping trips, Search Party does away with the process of distributing individual invitations, making sending and responding to multiple invites a breeze. Find yourself lost in a crowd? A group messaging feature lets users stay connected with real-time chat, while the integrated Google-powered map provides tracking and location services to make sure every person knows your whereabouts, so you'll never again get lost on your way to an event.
Users can also capture, organize, and save photos for each event through the app, which simplifies the process of uploading images onto favorite social media networks through integrated Facebook posting capabilities.
Search Party's host of features allows users to:
* Create public and private events
* Invite people from phone contacts
* Share public and private events through Facebook
* Receive attendance confirmations
* Use in-app navigation to locate the event
* Share geographic locations and estimated time of arrival
* Use group messaging with others attending the event
* Access the event photo gallery and share photos
"We designed Search Party to help people stay connected with their friends and family through stress-free event planning. With all these features and more, we guarantee a fun-filled party planning experience like no other," adds Brand. Organizing any event, anytime, anywhere is now easy and hassle-free. The possibilities are endless with Search Party.
