Since some time now I had the desire to see new things developed for ‘themselves’ by the people at The Cocktail as they did with La Coctelera.
Alberto Knapp has been commenting since long on his twitter that he is very much interested in mobile applications, and apart from that is supporting specific events for developers of these applications and also collaborating with the Open Movilforum platform.
This interest has manifested itself with the launch of Tvienes, which Alberto has just announced. The application has been developed by the team of The Cocktail based on API’s available in Open Movilforum and it basically serves the purpose of meeting up with a group of friends via messages to the mobile or email.
As I so much like the applications developed at The Cocktail, I threw myself in to try it out. I loved the registration process, everything is explained to perfection and the process to create an event and invite people is also very well executed, not as much as the registration process though, but it shows that the work has been done by experts in usability.
The structure, design and functioning of the web reminds us of Twitter, which made me think as soon as I started using it that apart from being able to send invitations to events via mobile or email, it should also allow the same function in Twitter.
After trying it out, I thought that one thing that could be added is that the message sent to the mobile includes some information regarding the event. As it is right now, you only receive the name of the event and a web address to enter and see the rest of the information.
Vote for Tvienes in Loogic Rank.
Update: I forgot to mention that Alberto Knapp will be in the next Iniciador to talk about product development.
