It seems like there’s a new convention, new event, new meet up, new geeky group that pops up every week. This is especially true in big cities like LA and NYC. And as a very busy adult person, it’s hard to keep track of all the fun goings on — which can make you feel a little left out. I’m obviously not the only one wishing for a better way to keep track of all the geekiness going on around me: enter the Nerd Out app.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-02-at-6.18.47-AM_zpslht0ahxvCreated by fellow fangirl Michelle Jensen of Your Friend Elle, the Nerd Out app features events in 21 cities — including LA, NYC, Seattle, London, Austin, Orlando, and Washington D.C. —  across the US and England and is updated daily with new happenings. Aside from big events like WonderCon, C2E2, and Free Comic Book Day, users can submit more niche events so that every fandom can be represented.


You can look for events in your area (or another city you may be thinking of visiting) and then add them to your favorites. Submitting an event is free — as is the app, by the way — and new cities are being added every couple of weeks based on user demand. The only stipulation for adding an event is that it has to be public and pop culture related. Everything from cons and fan gatherings to pub quizzes and movie screenings are featured on the app, so there’s something for everyone.


Nerd Out also has some social media features like being able to add friends, share events, and posting photos and statuses. Perfect for your our geek squad!


My favorite part of the Nerd Out app is that it’s a one stop shop for finding nerdy events. No more scouring the Internet and having to go to an event’s Facebook, website, and Twitter just to find out what it’s all about. And, of course, it’s FREE.

The Nerd Out app is available in the Apple Store and from Google Play.
