Today we're welcoming everyone to join Schemer and start doing more awesome stuff. What is Schemer? To give you an idea, we put together this video:
How does it work? It's all about the schemes! A scheme is anything you might want to do. Here are a few schemes made by our users:
- Take a mixology course at Bourbon and Branch speakeasy
- Relive Ferris Bueller's Day Off in Chicago
- Use leftover tortillas to make chilaquiles
- Surf the sand dunes at White Sands
Whatever idea strikes your fancy, collect them on Schemer easily by saying "I want to do it". Schemer helps you keep track of everything you want to do so you'll always have a scheme up your sleeve. Use Schemer from home, or out and about with our mobile app (our latest Android update is available today, iPhone app in the works). Schemer even suggests the perfect scheme for the moment - for example, watching a movie if it's a rainy day, or checking out a new brunch spot on a weekend morning:
Schemer uses your Google+ connections to show you what people in your circles are scheming about. Using the "Accomplices" page, you can even select a group of friends and find what schemes you all have in common. Pick a scheme and click "Rally" to mobilize your crew to go do it together!
Besides bringing your ideas from your Google+ friends, we've also teamed up with a wide variety of great brands such as Bravo, Thrillist, NPR, Saveur, IGN, Parenting.com and many others to bring you their recommendations -- no matter what interests you, you'll find something you want to do on Schemer.
