About Wespy

Wespy is a Manhattan-based app that uses existing social media data to locate new places to check out.

How does it work? You can login through Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram and your friends’ location data is imported into Wespy. You can browse and filter through this info to find cool places to go based on your friends’ info.

Why? Who do you trust to recommend awesome stuff to do more than your friends? Unlike review apps and websites where you’d read reviews written by strangers (that are sometimes sponsored), Wespy adds the advantage of knowing the visitors personally and making your own decisions based on the interests of the friends who visit a certain location.

Disclaimer: This app is just a prototype, so don’t expect everything (or most things) to work. Wespy is the senior thesis project of Jenn Martins, a student at Parsons The New School for Design.
