Eyecrawler has created the first micro-reporting platform that let's you see a live feed of your city, town, or neighborhood before stepping out.
The problem we're solving is a simple one. People want to know what's happening now, before they decide where to go. Our solution is to transform the general public into on-location reporters.
The platform consists of an app, widget, and TV product. The mobile app lets users view and share micro-reports called Blinks, which consist of a photo, category, and comment. You can even view Blinks coming from a selected area by category of interest, such as "live music." The widget allows websites to display our content feed. Finally, MyCrawler lets venues display live Blinks created in their establishment on their TVs.
Our initial target is a younger audience using the app for nightlife, e.g. what bar, club, or venue has the best scene right now. Later, Eyecrawler will benefit all demographics as it becomes a source of live news for an area.
