“Given goby’s depth of content, mobile is a perfect platform. We’ve got more than four million things to do, all geo-tagged and easily searchable by location,” said Mark Watkins, CEO and co-founder of goby. “That means wherever you go, wherever you want to go, goby can cure your boredom on the spot.”

The Android app allows users to quickly find nearby activities and events, make weekend plans or explore a new location in just three taps. Once users select the desired activity from goby’s search results, a single tap will highlight specific details about that activity such as complete descriptions, reviews and photos. One more tap lets users share activities via social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, creating an easy way to share plans and recommendations with family and friends.
“Goby’s mobile apps empower users to find fun anytime, anywhere using their mobile devices,” said Watkins. “We launched goby with the goal of helping people find new experiences and inspiring them to try new things. We’re also in the process of adding more features to all of our mobile apps to allow people to create, edit and share goby content. You can preview these new features on goby.com where users already have the ability to save, organize and share all the things to do they find across the site.”
