YPlan, an app that offers up things to do at short notice for residents of (or visitors to) London, New York and San Francisco, has been updated with new and tweaked features that aim to provide a slicker user experience.

Among the changes is a redesigned view of events; it now shows recommendations grouped by the type of activity you want, such as a ‘date night’ or casual drinks with friends. The company said these categories will be continually updated “to reflect upcoming cultural holidays, key calendar moments and even changes in the weather.”

There’s also now more powerful mapping and search features to help you find specific events or venues by location, category or keywords. Rounding off the notable feature changes are new price filters, allowing you to refine events in groups by price and date.

The Android version with the new features will be rolling out today, while the iOS version is scheduled to arrive by the end of March.
