GLEE's Kevin McHale Launches New App Available Today on App Store
Available exclusively on the App Store today, +ONE was created by GLEE star Kevin McHale and friends that grew tired of struggling to make plans and get together. The app, which is being launched at TechCrunch DISRUPT SF, allows users to create events in as little as 30 seconds to invite their friends to outings such as watching a movie, having dinner, or even going on an epic road trip.With +ONE, users can create events by entering a private address or choosing a location powered by Foursquare, inviting friends directly from the contact list on their phones, and selecting the date and time of the event. Event hosts have the option to add an "RSVP by" date, post event notes and updates, add an entry fee (if applicable), and create a "Vote" feature that allows guests to voice their opinion on details such as where to go. Guests are able to chat with other guests invited to the same event with limited push notifications and have the option to invite other friends to the same event if the host has set the event to "public." +ONE makes it easier for friends to make plans and get together by providing a more connected and pleasant experience that eliminates the frustration and confusion of making plans over text messaging and multiple apps. Getting your friends together has never been this simple! +ONE is available FREE of charge exclusively through the App Store in English and supports Brazilian Portuguese. Additional supported languages including Arabic, Spanish, and French coming soon!
