Qork has made itself known as an app that puts emphasis on hyper-local interactions. Although app stores are flooded with places to connect with people from absolutely anywhere in the world, Qork puts an emphasis on people much closer to where you are stationed at any given time.
At this year's SXSW, Qork partnered up with Austin blog to become a hub for all SXSW news. At a multi-day event like SXSW where there's so much to see and do, it's easy to become overwhelmed with content. Qork proposes a solution with its curated stream of news, events, parties, sessions and screenings. If there's still too much to choose from at SXSW 2015, the Qork app also helps to connect festival-goers with one another through in-app chat.
