Applauze, formerly 955Dreams Inc., is a new age publishing company. They publish magical titles on mobile devices.

Their latest product, called Applauze launched in March of 2013, is an iOS app that presents users with thousands of events happening every day, from concerts and theater productions to sports games and community events. The service is available across 41 U.S. cities and 5 Canadian cities.

Applauze finds tickets from primary sellers, as well as secondary markets like StubHub, and uses data analytics and machine learning to recommend relevant events to users, who can easily purchase tickets via the app and also share their event with friends.

Applauze is a small group of hackers and designers who are working on mobile products that will engage and excite you. They love what they do and their users love the products they've built. Their designs are executed at a very high standard and their apps are educational and highly immersive at the same time.

Applauze has raised money from Mitch Kapor and 500 Startups.
