Mapped Phoenix (http://mappedphoenix.com) was built for a social cause. The goal was to showcase entrepreneurial events and workspace collaborations on a easy-to-view map so that everyone could see what's going on in Phoenix. The app also displays happy hours, restaurants, music events, landmarks, and treasures of Phoenix.
Mapped Phoenix is crowd-sourced so anyone can add to it. The app received hundreds of downloads within a couple weeks of hitting the Google Play store. That's because it solves the problem of not knowing where to go when you want to do the following: eat at the hottest happy hours in town, startup a new company, network with entrepreneurs, hear local live musical performances, and do something new that you've never done before. New features on the app will be the ability to rate places, and an algorithm will then determine whether or not it's a popular place on the map based on people's opinions.
