An important part of living a healthy, active lifestyle is getting out and finding fun events and activities within your community and city. Oftentimes though, it’s hard to find local events that cater specifically to you and your interests. The generic results from a web search such as: ‘summer events in the Twin Cities’ or ‘Things to do in August in Minneapolis’ will often bring you back to square-one of searching for things to do this upcoming weekend and lead you to hearing about all the best events of the summer after they’ve already occurred.
RedCurrent is an awesome new Twin Cities mobile app that aims to tackle this problem by bringing all events going on in the Twin Cities to one easy-to-use and navigable platform that let’s you search for local events by date, category, and location. The app’s great design and user-friendly layout make it extremely simple to sort through all upcoming events and find the one’s that interest you. Whether you’re interested in Farmer’s markets, brewery events, art fairs, wineries or any of the other categories on RedCurrent, you’ll be able to find all the events that interest you.
RedCurrent is a free mobile app currently available to iPhone users in the App Store. An Android version is set to hit the GooglePlay store in the next few months and the service can be run ubiquitously from any computer or mobile web-browser by going to www.redcurrent.com. Currently the app is only available within the Twin Cities but be on the lookout for added cities in the near future.
