    Full control over your interests.

    Yocal is designed to be relevant. You have control that goes beyond deciding whether you want sport's information or arts and culture. You can decide to be kept in the know on theater events but not concerts.

  • Find something cool? Shelf it.

    The Shelf-It tool enables you to store the things that you want to find again fast. Want to remind yourself of the headliners from the upcoming concert series? Or perhaps there's a write up of the new restaurant down the block from your home. Shelf them now, and come back to them later.
