MnG-App-IconAn average of 55 people move to the city of San Diego each day*! That’s about 20,000 more people looking to make new friends every year. But even America’s 8th largest city can feel lonely when you haven’t quite gelled with your coworkers, neighbors, or other people you come across on your daily path. Enter MeetnGreet.

MeetnGreet helps you start new connections so that you can find your new crew. Whether you want to go out for drinks on a Saturday night, or just don’t feel like trying a new restaurant alone, MeetnGreet shows you people who share similar interests and are close enough to join you on your adventures. MeetnGreet’s open forum feature is also the easiest way to connect and talk with local people about the things that matter to you.

The app is completely FREE! Users sign up as an individual or couple, and each person will have the opportunity to build a profile. The matching engine then calculates the user(s)’s best Connections. The App allows users to chat with their Connections directly and/or engage with the MeetnGreet community via the open Forum. The Forum is also a great place for new San Diegans to find out what events are happening around town, read local recommendations, and ask other SD people for help figuring out this sunny town. Users can get invited out by others to do things that match their interests, or they can set up meetngreets (get togethers) with their Connections.

Unlike other social apps, MeetnGreet does not try to connect you with people you already know, however vaguely, nor does it require people to join a certain group to find out information about events. Instead, MeetnGreet is primarily for making new connections and getting out around the local community.

Other reasons that people use this app include: changes in location within SD, changes in life stage, changes in marital/relationship status, new or existing interests not matching with existing friendships.

MeetnGreet is a company based on the belief that friendships enhance the quality of life. MeetnGreet is a San Diego startup that launched in January 2015. It was founded by a Southern California couple that is on a mission to connect people and promote face-to-­face interactions. MeetnGreet has been available as a website since the company’s launch.

MeetnGreet is available for free on the App Store and requires iOS 9.2 or later. It is compatible
with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. MeetnGreet is also available on Google Play and requires Android 4.1 and up.

By using everyStory, people can now fuse past, current and future – every generation is able to tell a story or use our app to keep family history and legacies living on endlessly,“ said Dave Keene, founder and CTO of everyStory.

Users can simply tap a tagged person’s name to hear the story that is connected to a specific photo or album.
“Now having the app available for both iOS and Android users, the art of storytelling and preservation of memories has never been easier.

SAN DIEGO (May 13, 2015) – Today, PIZICATO, the digital donation platform for musicians powered by fans, launched a mobile app for iOS. This app and technology is the first of its kind and unites the musician and fan through digital and social platforms, allowing users to directly impact the musician’s career path and quality of life. Music fans can now donate to any artist or band when they are most inspired to, whether it is at a concert or when they hear a new song for the first time. This innovative new app acts as a digital donation jar, empowering anyone to take a stand on sustaining the music industry instantly from the palm of their hand.

Currently, the app is equipped with a user-friendly search tool for fans to identify their favorite musician or band. Once a musician or band signs up they receive a unique QR code to freely use on their promotional and marketing materials. The QR code feature takes users to the musician’s PIZICATO profile page to make it even easier to donate and support. The app also has a flashlight to use when in dim venues or at night festivals and concerts. The platform works by using Facebook’s application programming interface (API) to connect the fan to the musician’s Facebook Page. This allows the fan to donate directly to the artist, band, or musician of their choice via PayPal. The donations are all tax-free to the artist, and the artist receives 82 percent of the donations made. The rest goes back to PIZICATO.com to cover PayPal fees and operational costs to ensure continued donating, thereby creating a more sustainable music industry.

“Being a lifelong music fan, I love how easy it has become to listen to my favorite music and discover new artists through online streaming sites; however, I am disappointed with how these changes have impacted the way artists are compensated. The launch of this app is a very important component to our business model because it enables fans to give back to music with a press of a button while they are in the moment at live shows,” explained Jeff Storm, longtime entrepreneur and co-founder of PIZICATO. “Music is such a personal, visceral experience and some of it resonates so deeply that I’d like to personally say thank you to the artists and share how they’ve impacted my life. We believe PIZICATO.com and our new app are effective ways to make a difference,” stated Jeano Erforth, co-founder of PIZICATO.

The digital platform and app are currently only optimized for donating to musicians and bands. Profile support is not yet available in the app, but musicians and fans can create an account at www.PIZICATO.com. The minimum donation is four dollars and artists are able to send a personalized note to their fans after receiving the donation, allowing for a deeper sense of community and connection.

For more information on how to sign up or to learn more, please visit: www.PIZICATO.com
or download the free app now in the App Store.
