The city application shown on the right moves the user from the home page to an events categories page. When users tap or click on Activities, they are taken to a variety of activity choices. Clicking or tapping any of the categories takes the user to a list of what’s available, geolocated to their location so they can quickly see which venue in their chosen category is closest to them. From there, tapping on a button for a desired venue will provide directions, ticket information, a description of the event, and much more.

Dividing events into categories helps users quickly and efficiently find an event of high interest, and smoothly transitions them to the information they need to have about an event.
