App of week for journalists: Shhmooze, for networking at events

App of the week: Shhmooze

Phones: iPhone

Cost: Free

What is it? An iPhone app for networking at conferences, meetings and events

How is it of use to journalists? This app is for journalists who attend conferences. It’s app of the week this week as we are encouraging delegates to use it at Friday’s news:rewired digital journalism conference.

The app requires you to upload a profile picture (you will need an avatar-type picture on your phone) and you can then search for the event, check-in and see who else has done the same.


I first came across it and used it at the Guardian Activate Summit and found it useful.

If you are hosting an event you have to submit details manually and wait for approval.

    This App answers a need to integrate twitter, events and Linked IN, where many of our members can be found, along with non members who join in and seek help and information. Will be looking more closely at your other suggestions. Must tell KSHOW at Messe Dusseldorf about this APP so we can get all our members using it well before 2013 – preferably for all our SPE events!
