If you break it down to bare bones, it is an app that lists about 10 things going on in London tonight and tomorrow night. They are the smaller comedy shows, theatre performances, gigs and foodie events that you never normally hear about. Not only do you get to hear about these fun events, but the majority of them are under £10, which makes them perfect for a spontaneous night.
To add to the spontaneity, you pay for your ticket just by clicking a button on the app, so there is no time for your brain to come up with all those crap excuses (e.g. I’m really tired after a long week at work and I have about a million blog posts to write).
I think where YPlan differs to all those deal websites like Last Minute etc, is that it is really simple. There are only a few shows and only for tonight and tomorrow so you don’t get overwhelmed by all the things you should be seeing. Is is also requires active participation by YOU. You are the one who has to open the app, and if you have opened it obviously your brain is telling you to go and do something. Completely different from the hundreds of deal emails that clog up your inbox every day.
If I haven’t convinced you, download YPlan and use the rewards code “runawayk” – you will get £7 to try something out yourself.
