App tracks down city nightlife

A new app for BlackBerry smartphone users called Hiive makes it easier than ever before to track down the hottest nightlife in any major South African city.

This app for party animals is available for free from BlackBerry App World.

The move comes a month after MTN told its subscribers it would no longer offer unlimited internet access to its BlackBerry users. Credit: AP

Hiive connects BlackBerry users to an online community focused on the best nightclubs and events in town. Clubs, promoters and partygoers come together to share information about the best gigs, venues and parties in town.

Using the app and its filterable searches, you can hunt down the right venue and event for your tastes in a matter of seconds. You can also snap pictures and post them with your updates when you have found a great venue to get more people to join the festivities.

There’s already a big and lively community of people posting content to the app, as well as an extensive listing of the greatest venues in most of South Africa’s bigger cities. It’s an ideal way to find out what’s happening in your city or another South African town that you are visiting.

Maps, GPS coordinates and contact details make it easy for you to find your way to a venue that catches your eye, while comments made by other Hiive users keep you informed about what events or venues are really popular. You can also easily share information with friends on Facebook or Twitter directly from the Hiive app.
