Schemer is Google’s latest web service coming soon to everyone and it sounds pretty cool.
Schemer will allow users to get involved in Google recommended activities in their area. It includes a list of new things users discover and do online and are recommended on the basis of the users’ location and interests.
Some examples of Schemer tasks include playing the large piano at FAO Schwarz in New York City or taking a bike ride up to Hawk Hill in San Francisco.
As told by Google:
Whether it’s exploring a new city, checking out a friend’s movie recommendations, or just finding new activities for your weekends, Schemer lets you discover new things to do, share schemes with friends, and make the most of your day. Schemer is based on a simple yet powerful concept: schemes. A scheme is any activity you’d like to do.
Schemer has a strong social element to it (perhaps influenced by Google+) – you can not only find things to do in your free time but also share your interest in specific schemes with your Google+ friends. Schemer will also allow you to save your schemes of interest to a list of things to be done later.
Schemer has currently teamed up with sites like Bravo, Entertainment Weeklym GeekDad / GeekMom, Idealist, IGN, Lifehacker, National Geographic, Outside, Parenting.com, Real Simple, Rolling Stone, Southern Living, Time Out, Thrillist, US Department of the Interior and Google-owned Zagat and we can expect the list to grow over time.
Schemer is currently available by invitation-only. Users who are interested in becoming a part of this service can register their email address at www.schemer.com and wait (patiently) for the invitation from Google.
Google has released a video explaining how Schemer works, which you can view below.
