Another day, another standalone Facebook app.
Facebook today launched Events from Facebook, a new app that’s focused on helping you find things to do. When you launch it, Events will show you events that your friends are interested in, events from Pages that you like and updates from events that you’re going to.
There’s also a search tab that’ll let you browse event recommendations based on time, location, or your interest. This will let you check out events that are happening near you.
Finally, there’s a calendar in the app that’ll show all of the events you’re attending. The app will let you import other calendars from your phone so that it’s easier for you to find out when you’re free.
Events from Facebook is now available on iPhone and is “coming soon” to Android.
Facebook has released several standalone apps that focus on specific features of its social network, and Events is the latest in that trend. Events looks like a well-made app, and because the app can help you find events near you that you might not have normally known about, this Events app could be worth a look if you ever find yourself bored and looking for something to do.
