Bars, cafés, clubs, saunas, hotels or simply just a cruising area, a new phone app called Spartacus is hoping to entice gay male users keen to peruse their surroundings.

Free of often costly roaming charges, as virtually all the functions are also available offline, the app has attempted to set itself apart from other similar services with an intelligent search function that covers 2580 cities, 24.000 entries and 143 countries.

The ‘mood search’ can instantly find all the most suitable places to meet needs such as dancing, drinking, sex, sleeping, shopping or even simply eating.

A feedback function provides direct contact with the Spartacus editors and Facebook, so you can let all your friends immediately know which club you’re currently into.

If desired, every location can be rated using a special star system – letting other users know at a glance where it’s all happening.

Another unique feature besides the detailed descriptions of all entries is the integration of images, flyers and other information on the respective venues, creating a comprehensive portrait.

And if you would like to find out more about a country or city, the app will provide you with articles by its editors on the local political situation affecting the local LGBTI community.

The range of services is rounded off by a global event calendar listing Pride events around the world, as well as all the largest parties.

The app is available in German or English in three different versions from $8.99.

Every version is automatically updated every month for an entire year. A free version for trying out all the features within a selected test country is also available.
