echoecho

echoecho is a mobile phone software development company founded in 2010 to create and develop cutting edge smartphone solutions.

The company’s first product, an open API, cross-platform, carrier agnostic location sharing system called echoecho, is primed to be a market leader in the location based services sector.

echoecho is confident that the ability to safely, simply and quickly share location with friends, family or business colleagues is a real problem that many users find themselves facing.

“Where is John?” “Where is my girlfriend?” “I’m running late but I’d like to show you where I am located.”

echoecho seeks to continue redefining location sharing technology - and its uptake within and beyond the early adopter markets - by focusing on simplicity - rather than adding complexity.

Since we figure we solved the problems of privacy, permission and preference inherent in location sharing very elegantly - we thought we’d add some more use cases into the mix - so users can now chat and find+share meeting places in 2 clicks. In the latest version of the software we also added a feature we call LIVE - essentially a short term 2-way real-time link between friends - it works very well and it’s perfect for organising vehicle pickups (carpooling, dropping off and picking up friends etc)
