You don’t have to be bored any more with fun-finder app

2014-04-19 00:00

NOT sure what to do with the family these Easter holidays? You’ve guessed it — yes, there’s an app for that too.

If you happen to be in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, the “I’m Bored” family-friendly-fun-finder app might come in useful.

Since launching in December 2013, the service has attracted a loyal following and thousands of downloads of its app.

It can be accessed directly through the website or through Facebook, but primarily through the Android app.

“I’m Bored” acts as a portal that draws and collects information about various events taking place around the three cities, and displays them in a manner similar to a scrolling newsfeed.

The app also uses one’s location to search for events or activities taking place nearby.

Different dates can be selected to plan a diary for the holidays, set reminders or share them with Facebook friends or through Google+.

While the app itself is simple to use, Durbanites and those visiting for the holidays might not find much use for it as the list of activities and events for the city is not as extensive as for Johannesburg and Cape Town.
