Beacon is an app that makes organizing group events a lot more fun and efficient. No more lengthy email threads, messy group chats and lost information!
By sending a Beacon to your friends or groups, you can find out what everyone's preferences are for dates, Locations, and other custom options that you can add.
For example: you want to organize a summer holiday with your closest friends. Beacon allows you to easily add different dates (1 July, 10 July, 20 July ...), locations (Portugal, Mexico, Morocco ...) and custom options (Hotel, Camping, Couch Surfing ...).
Your friends can reply with ‘accept’, ‘maybe’ or ‘decline’ and provide their preferences, so you get a great overview of who’s joining and what your group’s ideal summer holiday should look like!
The app is fully real-time and works well on iOS and Android. Integrations with different platforms and social media make it even more useful because you can follow up with the people by sending calendar invites, sending emails, sharing locations through Google Maps, share on Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter etc.., creating chat groups and much more.
Target audience is everyone, on any (mobile) device.
Ps. Beacon is inspired on the Lord of the Rings scene where the Beacons get lit and they know who's joining them in the war: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6LGJ7evrAg
