So it’s around 9pm on a Thursday evening and the movie 2012 just let out. The problem is you left the house with incomplete plans for the evening, so you ask yourself; “What should I do now?” This is a problem that plagues us all, and an even bigger problem for groups. Enter Gomodo!
Gomodo is a location aware web application that helps you quickly find things to do near you. Essentially Gomodo gives you a list of events near you based on the GPS location of your mobile device. Simple right?
Gomodo was designed and developed during Startup Weekend in Atlanta! The concept behind Gomodo came from one of our co-founders Jay Cuthrell, when he explained how he sometimes leaves the house without anything to do, but knows he wants to do something. After debating back and forth on how to solve the problem Jay, Clay and I decided to build what is now Gomodo. The team is a really solid group with a long history in the internet and startup space, so I’m confident that we can continue to mold Gomodo into something useful and fun!
At the time of this post Gomodo is designed to work best on the iPhone (or iPod touch), with a very simple web version available for others. If you’re on a blackberry, don’t worry, we’re working on a solution for you too! The team is currently tossing around some additional ideas while expanding the search nationwide (sorry only available in the U.S…. for now) so give it a try and tell us what you think. If Gomodo helps you find something fun to do, tell them Gomodo sent you!
