Ever wonder what that circular image posted outside a local NYC bar is all about? – Well, that’s the Wingit symbol. Makers of Wingit are passionate in creating social, local, and mobile applications that provide surprise and encourage improvisation into people’s experiences. Simply put, Wingit promises oodles of spontaneous activities to an otherwise boring week. The Wingit app, which just launched 2 months ago, is only available for iOS and only covers NYC (for now).

The Wingit app has 3 main features: Live stream, stash, and status. The live stream feature is enabled once the user scans a Wingit symbol. Then, the floodgate of festivities becomes available for the user to choose—activities like musical mash-ups in a local bar, foosball tournament, and a secret sake spot. The stash allows the user to save any activity for future use, while the status allows the user to create and share posts about his/her experiences.

Wingit taps into people’s, particularly Gen Yers, desire to explore their surroundings and discover new things the city offers. Sometimes, winging it is not so bad.
