“Trender provides users with a real-time guide to popular gigs and allows them to see where friends are gathering right now. “Trender ranks popular venues as a trend and allows users to view the most popular venues displayed in an interactive list,” Trender joint-chief executive officer (CEO) Calvin Terblanche said.”

Socialites can browse trends by category including nightlife, bars, and restaurants,and see what their friends and other people are doing in real-time.

Terblanche said Trender ensures you are in the right place at the right time, with users able to view the top trends for the past week and see the gender ratio at a particular trend.”
