FlapApp is a platform where a user can create and manage personalized events like birthday, wedding, baby showers, social gatherings, corporate parties/meets etc. and can also discover events (Concerts, Exhibitions etc) happening in their city or at the location of their choice.
The app lets users to join, RSVP (Request for a response from the invited person or people) for events sent out to them to give an idea to organizers and invitees of the headcount they can expect for the event. It provides access to location of events on the map, and users can view upcoming and past events and send invites to their contacts. Invitees can upload photographs and share it with their friends across different social networks.
Also, the app includes a ‘Quick invite’ feature that allows users to share events with non-app users but RVSPs and photo sharing are only accessible through the app. Currently, it is available for Android and iOS users.
FlapApp was founded in February 2015 by Kirti Joshi and his team of four from Indore and is now close to 10,000 downloads.
Here is a video which shows how the app works:
California-based Evite was launched in 1998 by Josh Silverman, Al Lieb, and John Bracken, and was acquired by Liberty Media on December 2, 2010. When party hosts log onto the website they have access to a plethora of tools to help them during every step of the event planning process. This includes a checklist tool to keep track of party tasks, a budget estimator, customizable invitations, a drink calculator, eCards for after party thank-yous, and a “My Notebook” section to save ideas and other notes. Evite also helps hosts by offering party theme ideas, recipes, a wine-pairing chart and more.
Event organizers can plan, promote and sell tickets to events, and publish them across Facebook, Twitter and other social networks directly from the site’s interface. Event organizers are able to look up and check in their event attendees off a guest list; validate ticket barcodes by using phone cameras; and view live sales and event attendance statistics.
Eventbrite was founded by Kevin Hartz, Renaud Visage, and Julia Hartz in 2006 and is based in San Francisco.
