  • Beacon - Beacon's goal is to make it easier to hang out with your friends by letting them know that you're available. Rather than just texting your friends to see what they're up to, you create an event in Beacon, and let them know that you'll be attending. It doesn't matter if you're looking to hang out with conference attendees, go see a movie, or just grab a bite to eat, it's easy to make either a public or friends-only event for people to attend. And if you want to respond to an event created by someone else? Just tap the In? button on their event card and you're good to go. - Free - Download Now
