“When you first launch the app, it asks you to select an activity: ‘Eat and drink,’ ‘Watch a movie,’ ‘Visit an attraction,’ or ‘Create your own,'” Sarah Perez reports for TechCrunch.
“With a few more taps you enter the other details, like the event time, or – in the case of a custom event – the location, name, and a description,” Perez reports. “The app will the create a custom card for your event, designed for texting, which includes a [generic] thumbnail image with the location and the time.”
