Have you ever run into an ex-colleague or school friend when you’re busy and you’ve said the words “let’s catch up sometime”? And that sometimes never happens?
Well, one inventive young man from Sydney has come up with a brand new app that is taking the LGBT world by storm and it makes these catchups and getting people together easier than ever.
Daniel Berger, 27, took time away from work following his first graduate position so he could see the world and knock some things off his bucket list and one of those was his app called Wyd.
“Wyd is all about showing you what’s going on around you, and getting people together,” explained Berger to Gay Nation.
“You share what you want to do with who you want to do it with, and you see what your friends have shared with you.
“To put things simply, its all about taking the hassle out of making quick plans with your friends.”
The app is very easy to navigate and unlike social media where you post about things you are already doing, on Wyd you post what you feel like doing, choose who to show that too, and see who wants to come.
if you see something on Wyd it means you’re welcome to come along too.
The people you want get notifications that you’re making plans and with your permission, they can even share those plans around with others.
Everyone who joins gets added to a group chat to figure out the finer details.
Berger said since the launch of the app Wyd has been closely aligned with the gay community.
“The #LGBT hashtag has fast become a hotspot for those looking for parties that cater to the usual LGBT community outside of the regular club nights, and with support from Mardi Gras, Headliner Group, Heaps Gay and many others its quickly become the most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to what’s on in gay Sydney, and starting to get events across the country.
“Something that, as a frequent gay traveller myself, I wish was available in more destinations around the world.”
If you’re not sure what to do you can search and subscribe to hashtags that interest you and see what public events are coming up in your city.
Maybe its #Rock, #Food, #Festivals or #Fitness.
The app is available for iPhone currently and can be downloaded here.
