We’re gearing up for our GeekWire Meetup & Radio Show, the evening of April 11 in Seattle — the first time we’ve recorded our longstanding show in front of an audience. (Have you gotten your tickets yet?). As part of our planning, we’re on the hunt for a great App of the Week to feature, and today we’re asking for your input and nominations.
The ideal App of the Week has a special twist that makes a difference in people’s lives, solves a problem in a unique way, or is just so much fun that you can’t put it down. It’s the type of app that you can’t help but tell other people about. It can be a smartphone app, a tablet app or even a web app — we’re pretty forgiving in our definition of “app.”
For this episode, we will give preference to apps developed in the Seattle region or elsewhere in the Pacific Northwest, because we’ll be inviting the developer to join us to present the app to the crowd — ultimately reaching an even larger audience via KIRO Radio, GeekWire.com, and our loyal podcast following.
Normally we find and select the App of the Week ourselves, but audience participation will be a big part of this special version of the show, and we wanted to start the process in advance by asking for your ideas.
(Of course, we’ll also be including other regular features of the show, including special guests and a live version of our Name that Tech Tune contest, with prizes for the audience.)
Yep, app developers themselves are welcome to nominate their own app. Leave your pitch in the comments below, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your nominations.
The show will be recorded the evening of April 11 at the HUB Seattle in Pioneer Square. (The event runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and admission includes food and drink. More details here.) Grab your tickets below (early bird rates are still in effect) and look for additional details in the coming days on guests and other features of the live show.
Thanks to our meetup sponsor Outlook.com, and to our partners at KIRO Radio for their support. Looking forward to seeing everyone there on April 11!
