Places in London for iOS is Coming Soon

Enjoy Minded Limited is proud to announce the upcoming release of Places in London, their new iOS app. Enjoy Minded is a platform that aims to help London newcomers meet new people, make new friends and explore new places in the capital.


Relocating to a new city can be a really stressful experience to anyone, even for people who have done so multiple times already and even if the move represents a positive change such as getting a better job or starting university. Some of the best ways to overcome the stress and start feeling at home quickly is to get around and about in your new city and make some new friends. London in particular is home to hundreds of thousands newcomers and Enjoy Minded aims to help them do just that. Using the Enjoy Minded platform, people will be able to both discover new places in their city and make some new friends. The company has just launched “Places” on the web ahead of the release of their iOS app.


Places on Enjoy Minded is a listing of pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes in London and can help new Londoners find some nice places to hang out. The listing also contains short reviews and ratings for some of the places and is updated on a regular basis. Places is expected to launch by the end of November 2016.


Once the iOS app is available on the App Store, users will also be able to create ‘hangouts’ in those places and start meeting new people and making friends. The application will be completely free to download and use and anyone who signs up to the platform will be able to create a hangout or join one and meet some like-minded people. Creating a hangout can be done in a three quick and easy steps – select a location and date, select some interests and provide a title and description.


“The marketplace is already crowded with dating apps such as Tinder, OkCupid and PlentyOfFish, so the Enjoy Minded platform will be a really nice alternative for people who are not looking for dates, but just to make some friends and is a good alternative for couples looking to meet new people,” explains Ivan Genchev, founder of London based Enjoy Minded Limited. “Also, it could be a better choice to Yelp and Foursquare for people that have recently moved to a new city and are looking to go out.”
