SPOT LAUNCHES SOCIAL EVENT DISCOVERY AND SHARING APP

Spot App Connects Users Through Real-Life Events Around Their Hobbies,
Sports Interests, or Community and Singles Events.

LOS ANGELES – August 2, 2017 – SPOT today launched its free mobile app that lets users easily find, join, or create events in their area to meet new people with similar interests. Spot is the simplest and fastest way to connect with new friends in-person through events around shared hobbies, sports interests, or community and singles events. SPOT is available for download on the App Store and Google Play.

“SPOT is a fun and easy tool to connect with people right outside your phone. You can sign in and create or join events in less than a minute.” said Oren Peli, CEO and co-founder of SPOT. “Whether you’re looking for a tennis partner, a book club, a volunteer opportunity, or a group of singles to go hiking with, SPOT offers a way to meet new people and get to know one another in an accessible way.”

SPOT was founded in 2016 by Oren Peli and Oren Zbeda. Peli began his career as a software programmer, using his skills to create animation programs and video game software, and then transitioned into film making. Paranormal Activity, which Peli wrote, directed and produced, was his first film. Since then, he produced the hit sequels Paranormal Activity 2, 3, and 4, The Marked Ones, and The Ghost Dimension. The Paranormal Activity franchise is one of the highest-grossing horror film franchises of all time.

The idea for SPOT came to Peli when he was newly single and looking to connect with new friends. He couldn’t find a service that was simple to use or offered a low-pressure way to meet new people in a group setting. He created SPOT as a way to easily connect people through activities that they enjoy and bring people together in the real world.

With SPOT, there is no requirement to subscribe to a group or enter your personal interests, there is no fee to create a group or significant time commitment required to moderate a group.

The key features of the SPOT app include:
