Locally Designed App Attempts to Bring People Together

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Designers of an app created in Las Vegas hope it will be the next big networking tool. It's called Ayloo and it's designed to bring people together based on their common interests.

The free app will launch this week. It is also giving a boost to some local businesses by offering gathering places at five local coffee shops around the valley.

Once the app is downloaded, a user can select areas of interest. The user will receive a list of events with locations and times.

The co-founder of the app said he wanted to create a way for people to come together by meeting on a digital space first and then have it carry over to personal interaction.

Owners at some of the featured coffee shops say it is a great way to expand their customer base and connect people with common interests.

"That's only going to help us in grabbing more people that haven't been to the shop before," said John Ynigues, Grouchy John's owner.

"It seems like everyone is realizing that we have to work together and we all live in a similar space and we have similar interests so why not share them?" Perk Up Coffee Shop owner Jeanne Kessler said.

The coffee shops are just the beginning. The Ayloo team hopes that eventually users will create events in a wide range of areas from food to nightlife.
