One of the greatest ironies about our present-day social landscape, is that while it seems like there’s always something going on, actually finding it can be somewhat challenging. Of course, with the rise in usage of social media platforms like Facebook, there’s plenty of ways to find fun things to do when you’re bored or want to engage with some new and familiar faces; and even though activity preference will vary from person to person, our culture is conductive of opportunity, creativity, and resourcefulness, allowing people to come together and create their own fun like never before if all else fails. And, there’s always the App Store, which is home to dozens of event-minded apps that are specifically designed to help social butterflies flourish. Here, we provide three awesome iPhone apps to help you find fun things to do this weekend (or any day of the week) if you’re in need of a little inspiration.
