Gift Economy App Lets People Sell Their Spots In Line
Shout is a new mobile app that lets people place an offer on other's restaurant reservations, tickets and more.
Standing in line can be a drag – whether it be for dining at a no-reservation restaurant or at a secret gig by Prince. But now a new app is making standing in line less boring and more business, monetizing the idea of saving a spot for someone.
Shout allows people to either request or post a ‘spot’ for sale – both physical spots in line and virtual spots for those things that have been bought in advance, like reservations and tickets. Offerings that currently live on the app range from $30 for standing in line for a Cronut to $250 to get for waiting in the ticket line for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
