This city is always alive, isn't it?

Have you ever languished on your couch in despair, knowing NYC is thrumming with opportunity outside your grasp? Now, the electric possibilities of NYC are all contained within one cell phone app. It's called Fever, which makes sense, because it's spreading.

Fever's experts spend weeks pouring over the thousands of activities that go on throughout NYC, and they tailor them specifically for the interests you check.

Bored on a Tuesday and want to find something to do? Fever has already compiled a gaping list, from concerts, exhibitions, parties, comedy shows and deals at restaurants. With this new app, the most mind-blowing plans are just two clicks away. It's the only way to party, and it's happening now.


1. It's personalized

Fever doesn't send you any lame activities you're not interested in.

Instead, you choose your three favorite interests and the app filters all the coolest stuff that's happening in NYC right at your fingertips (literally).

With obvious choices like “food,” “party,” and “shopping,” there are also more individualizing options like “indie,” “nerdy,” and “gay.” Once you've chosen your three interests, click on the “plans” button, and watch dozens of activities that are perfect for you filter into your feed.



2. It's inexpensive

Partying on a budget? Fever has a ton of free and discounted options. From giveaways at exclusive restaurants like Blenheim, to $5 yogurts at the coolest new yogurt spot Yiaourti, to free cho-nuts at Kimchi Pop-Up (honoring all immigrant Americans), buying stuff has never been easier.

All you have to do is click on the food item, activity, or party you want to book, input your information and show them your ticket at the door or cash register. It's almost too good to be true. With Fever, you'll never have to un-crumple cash from your wallet praying you have enough, nor will you have to face the humiliation of your credit card getting denied.

When you arrive at a concert after RSVPing on this app, you'll have already paid and your entrance will be smooth, suave, and paperless (of course).


3. It's convenient

Rather than getting out your phone and shooting off texts, begging your friends to come with you to this or that activity, Fever will tell you which of your friends are attending an event. Then, you can call that friend and say, “Hey, wanna go together?”

Doing research to find Wednesday night activities before Fever was pretty bleak. You pretty much had to Google a specific activity, like “free concert,” which made your search so narrow. The beauty about Fever is that it knows what you want to do, and it knows when you want to do it. It shoots thrilling activities right onto your cell phone, in an aesthetically-pleasing manner.

You might be looking for “free concerts” and find out about a hip, new restaurant that's giving out free muffins, and then still find out about a free concert, and still hit it up... after you get those muffins, of course.


4. That connection tho!

Sometimes, you have a crush on someone and you have no way of finding out what he's doing Friday night.

Well, if you have Fever, you can see everyone who's attending a particular event, since right below the event is listed everyone who's “attending.”

You can also use it in a way less-creepy way. For instance, if you want to know how many people are attending the event you want to go to, and basically whether it will be good or a bust. You can make social connections on Fever, and it does all the work to shoot those people to the top of the guest list-- so basically, Fever tells you whether people you know are going to an event or not. Dope!

When you really want to go see a concert but you don't have anyone to go with, and then you click on Fever and see that the girl who sits across from you at work says she's going, it makes your decision to go way easier. Can I get a hell yeah?!


5. Dating

Ever had pre-date stress? You're not alone. Dating is tough because you want to plan an awesome evening that will make sparks fly.

Sometimes, this is tough when you don't know where to go, what to do, or how to basically make the date unforgettable. This app makes finding a spot for your date easy; all you have to do is take care of your good looks. Find out what your date is into, and submit their interests right into the app.

Not straight? I mentioned that “gay,” is one of Fever's interest options, so the days when you're stuck going to straight events and praying to spot at least one other gay person are gone.


6. Off-the-radar events

The events that Fever recommends are tailored to your personal interests-- not mainstream interests.

The type of events that will pop up on your Fever feed are not the ones you'll find out about in your newsfeed-- it's stuff you're actually interested in. I love art, and I love partying, and I rarely get to combine them.

However, I told Fever I like art and partying, and it told me about a free happy hour at the Museum of Art and Sex. Does it get any better than that?
