Users can share ideas of things to do
Google has finally brought its Schemer service to the iOS platform as a native app (free, App Store). Schemer for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch enables users to participate in the activity-recommendation network, which allows users to post things to do and organize activities with other users.
Examples of schemes posted to the network include "Relive Ferris Bueller's Day Off in Chicago", "Surf the sand dunes at White Sands", and "Use leftover tortillas to make chilaquiles". The system automatically makes recommendations based on criteria such as the time of day and weather.
The service works independently of Google+, though it does require users to sign in with a basic Google account. Users can build networks of "accomplices" to help organize group activities.
Schemer initially launched last year for desktop browsers and Android devices, however the company waited until this week to offer an iOS app.
