I am seeking feedback on an idea to create a free App which allows you to discover new events, things to and clubs to join in your area.

Many people currently use libraries, google searches or word of mouth recommendations to find new hobbies/events. However these options aren't available for everyone and can be limiting.

The App would take the hassle out of searching, and suggest new things for you that you may not have known about, based on your preferences.

This could be anything from magazine subscriptions, local theatres, fitness centre memberships, cinema, classes at yoga studios, and even to free community classes available in your area. The App would also offer discounts to activities and memberships.

You could also use the App to manage existing subscriptions and memberships from a single place - which might be useful if you currently manage this manually in a spreadsheet.

If an App like this existed:
a) would you use it?
b) what else would you add to the service?
c) what would you call it?

p.s. this would NOT launch in the current lock-down situation we have with Covid-19

No. I have adblock on my computer to avoid things like this.
