What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think “Go Dutch”?
For 4Creative it simply chained back to an old saying: “let’s split the bill”.
GoDutch is an application that can reach out to a community of friends, publish an event to share, display the cost, establish a meeting place and... GoDutch!
GoDutch provides the mobile community with a rich, intelligent, useful, & simply integrated application that makes planning, publishing & sharing of an event easy. At 4Creative Inc, we believe in community. When defined in simple terms we interpret community to mean: people gathering together to share common interests at a specific location. GoDutch allows people to plan, organize and do exactly that, from the palm of your hand.
Using GoDutch as an event planning and socializing tool can span just about anything that involves getting people together including:
• Friends meeting up for dinner
• Meeting up at pub to watch a hockey game
• Activity coordinators planning events for sporting, arts, entertainment etc…
• A group of friends renting a ski chalet at the mountain
• Hanging out on the lake for a day of boating
GoDutch also serves another powerful side of the community equation: the merchant, the location, the business or the establishment, the people or place that provide a venue where people plan gatherings at.
Merchants and businesses can use the same rich GoDutch features to publish and broadcast events happening at their venue:
• Happy hour specials at a nearby pub
• New menu items at a local restaurant
• Upcoming artists playing at a concert venue next week
• A sports team coming to a local stadium
• Professional athletes showing up at a local venue for people time
GoDutch for Android also provides the top requested features that people want from a social networking application. Here are a few:
• Simple sign-up
• Profile picture
• Facebook account wall post integration
• On device map integration
• On device album & camera integration
• Inline commentary
