We're working on a web/mobile application, and in our home screen we greet the user with the message Hi John, What are you up to today ?, we're offering him the option to find deals around him, places, movies and traffic status.

I want to randomize the What are you up today question with an additional set, maybe Looking for a night out?, so the services we offer would be relevant as answers, e.g. he can go the movies, or a restaurant, and check the traffic on the way. Any other ideas for more sentences?

I have voted to move this to writers.se, but am curious to know if this app will take John's current local time into account. – cornbread ninja 麵包忍者 Mar 15 '12 at 15:18

Per my comment, if the app does in fact retrieve the current system time in onStart() and onResume(), the possibilities are really only limited to the services offered by your app. Here are some off the top:

  • Have you had your coffee yet? If not...
  • It's a jungle out there this morning. Here are some alternate routes to (the office/airport/proving ground)
  • Impress that new client with dinner and drinks at...
