Mobile, location-based platform

Description

Update

Pingwyn is a mobile, location-based networking platform that enables users to share their location continuously – without the need to check in.

With most location-based apps the focus is on “what”. Their maps display coffee shops, gas-stations, restaurants, etc. With Pignwyn the focus is on “who”. The key premise is to put people on the map and to enable them to connect with each other, display a public profile, publish and share content. Other features include the ability to visit remote locations virtually, the ability to post public Pings, and the ability to track the location of family members, who might be hidden from the main map.

The first version of the app launched in December, 2011. With virtually zero marketing the app has generated a few thousand users across all six continents. The app currently runs on iOS and Android and other platforms will be covered soon.
