Fittingly dubbed, ‘Kenyabuzz Raha’ with the slogan “fun at your fingertips”, the phone app gives its users the ability to:
· Search events by city and area, date, or type of event including- art exhibitions, festivals/craft fairs, films, kids events, live music events, nightlife, photography, fashion, sports, theatre, dance, yoga/meditation, campus events and much more.
· Check the movie listings by movie or theatre for all movie theatres throughout Kenya.
· Search for restaurants by city, area, or cuisine.
· Find other fun including bars and nightclubs, sightseeing spots, spas, casinos, recreation activities and other fun and interesting places in Kenya.
“This is just the first version of the app”, says the director of Kenyabuzz Alix Grubel, “it simply gives the user information. But the next versions of the app will be interactive in the sense that they will allow people to check into the places, find their friends, make comments, review places, upload pictures and earn badges”.
The app, which can be downloaded free of charge by anyone with an android phone, is set to have a positive impact on the Kenyan social scene where previously it was difficult to get accurate and up-to-date information on the go.
