This a utility app/social network hybrid that aims to connect nerds around the world. It’s a really simple but effective event calendar app, allowing people from tons of different cities to list conventions, tournaments, and other geeky events in their area. With an event inventory ranging from Geek Girl Brunches to Lightsaber Battles or Geeks Who Drink Pub Nights, this app has it all!
Trying to keep up with all the events that the geek world has to offer can be a bit of a problem. In order to keep track of everything, you had to either go to the event’s website or social media page and track it yourself. Michelle Jensen decided that something needed to change. so she created the Nerd Out App for IOS and Android devices.
Our friend Michelle Jensen drops by Geekscape this week to tell us all about her Nerd Out App and how it can helps us geeks find things to do! Looking for a geek screening, party or event? Want to post one for yourself? Nerd Out App is the way to go! On top of that, Kenny tells us about how he ALMOST made it to Twitch Con and loves killing innocent people to classic hits in ‘Mafia III’!
Michelle (a social networking app for nerds) founder Nerd Out AppJensenjoins Natasha to discuss all things online dating, including their own horror stories!

This week’s episode is our second of 2 panels from Nerd Con. In this episode, we talk about how to be a better fan and how to be a positive influence in your geek communities.
Seriously if you need to know where to go for all the fun at Comic Con get the Nerd Out App on your phone! Awesome events including probably the biggest database of Cosplay Meet Ups are all on the app. To see the SDCC activity download the app and go to Calendar > California > San Diego. Then you can hit the drop down at the top and selection Conventions. From there you can view all the events happening during San Diego Comic Con! You will be glad you did!
NerdOut (Apple/Android) is a self-described “mobile nerd event calendar”, and thanks to a community of editors, it is easily one of the best guides to local events for anyone looking to familiarize themselves. Specific, big panels for conventions, as well as great after parties and cosplay gatherings, can often be found in this app. NerdOut is easy to use and has been my go-to for evenings at my favorite conventions for months.
This past Saturday, in celebration with Geek Pride Day (which took place on May 25th), The Perky Nerd partnered up with Nerd Out App for a Geek Pride Day Celebration & Trivia night. If you don’t know what the Nerd Out App is, you’re missing out. Nerd Out is a mobile nerd event calendar application available for download on Apple and Android devices, so you’ll never miss out on a nerdy event again! Get on it!
As much as nerd culture is increasing in popularity and elements of it are steadily sliding into the mainstream, it can still be difficult to track down niche events close to you. Sure, you hear about all the large conventions and conferences that go on for days and attract thousands of visitors. But the smaller, particularly one-off events are harder to come by organically, especially if you’re only visiting somewhere and we hate missing out.
Michelle Jensen works in television post production by day, but by night she’s the entrepreneur and mastermind behind what could become one of the most important single apps in geekdom: a region based event calendar for nerds. Listing geek and nerd oriented events near you, Nerd Out is the social event listing we’ve all been waiting for.
A hand-maintained list of conventions and gatherings from all over the world is presented at your fingertips, wherever you go, and it’s free for Android and iPhone. This is what venture capitalists tend to call “disruptive technology”, in that it tends to create a fundamental change in the way we do things.
I remember searching fruitlessly several years ago for other conventions or meet-ups in my area, but I just wasn’t sure what to search for because I wasn’t looking for a specific event. I just wanted to know what fun and geeky options I had within a short driving distance. That sort of fruitless and frustrating searching is a thing of a past ever since Elle created the Nerd Out app.
Geektitude – the measure of one’s inner geek. Geektitude is a geek culture blog and podcast dedicated to creating a positive community for geeks of all fandoms.
Geektitude was kind enough to ask us to guest on Episode 8 of their podcast! Listen for our discussion on being geek and what’s coming up next for Nerd Out!
It was only this past May when I began From Girlie to Nerdy. I had zero clue about the world of nerd or just how into it I would get. I was really lucky that I stumbled upon the awesome Female Geek Bloggers Google+ group. Shortly after joining, Elle, one of the members posted about the fundraising efforts for her soon to be launching app, Nerd Out. Now, although I was fine with just watching movies and shows that are considered “nerdy,” I really wanted to get out and meet people and do ALL of the things. The Nerd Out app came at the perfect time for me.
The Fairytale Traveler was a guest on the Jim Boy Star Podcast last week and gave a shout out to Nerd Out! The episode is Fairy Tale News Travels Fast. The Fairytale Traveler is a long time friend of Nerd Out so make sure to check out her site, as well as the episode itself linked below.
It became a must have for the rest of 2015 and something you would be crazy not to have in 2016 and beyond. Then the fun begins at creating your profile, with a picture, your name, location, website and a bio of yourself to share with other nerds around the globe. The first friend you receive on the app is the Mother of Nerds. (yes I made the Game of Thrones joke)
The App comes with a wall that you are able to check in and post your status, like what events you are at, the awesome merchandise that you purchased or picked up.
As someone who doesn’t have a lot of time to scour the internet but still wants to attend a lot of fun events, I’m stoked!”Since anyone with a public geeky event can add it to the app for others to find. This means that someone still working on growing their audience will be able to reach more people for their event!
The all new Nerd Out App is an innovative way to bring nerds together. It’s easy to use allowing the user to open the location-based app and see exactly what nerdtastic events are happening and when. From cult movies to comic cons and every nerdy thing between, it’s the only app bringing people together in the nerd universe. It’s a one-stop shop for information on nerdy events.
