Rowl Launches Social Discovery App

Santa Monica-based Rowl said this week that it has launched a new, mobile app which helps users find new music, sports, comedy, and other events, in a social way. Rowl, led by Fred E. Tannous, said the app will focus on helping users follow their friends, and favorite artists and celebrities, to see what they are up to. The startup has linked up with country music star Hunter Hayes to promote the free iOS app. The app notifies users when a favorite band, DJ, or comedian will be performing nearby, recommends events to users, and more.
