What iCloseBy is and why you need to INSTALL and USE iCloseBy today:

iCloseBy is introducing a new concept to social networking. iCloseBy is not a location based white board, restaurant finder or way to stay in contact with friends you already know. These GPS based location applications for social networking are missing 90% of the people you want to meet. The people with laptops, desktops or iPod Touch devices that do not have GPS hardware built in. How do you meet someone on a laptop at a cafe or bar with GPS based applications? You CAN'T!!! There are many limitations to the existing GPS based software like working inside buildings or often in big cities where satellite access is obscured by tall buildings. Often the GPS resolution is not detail enough to pinpoint withing 50 feet where you are. These GPS location based applications also require a connection to the internet. This might not be accessible or may be costly to access.

The biggest limitation to GPS based social networking software is being overwhelmed by tens of thousands of people all within a city block of YOU! There is no way of sorting through that mess of people. Are they really there?

iCloseBy is a truly cross platform approach to local social networking. By hopping on a WiFi hotspot you are now visible to everyone within that hotspot. A hotspot could be a $30 router turned on with no DSL, Cable or monthly access fee for internet access. A hotspot could be a paid WiFi access point you hop on without paying the internet connection fee. You can view others in REAL TIME as they are changing their micro profiles and pictures. You can chat with these people for free! No SMS charges. You know they are really there around you!

BEST OF ALL you can walk away with someone you just met through iCloseBy and goto a movie or out to a bar or just take a walk in the park. You don't need to arrange a meeting or figure out where to meet. You KNOW you are each in the same location right then!

So install iCloseBy on your iPhone, iPod Touch, Microsoft Windows PC and Mac OS X computers and start helping iCloseBy reach the critical mass it needs to change the way we meet new people!

iCloseBy is the FIRST and many applications will follow this novel approach to social networking.

iCloseBy fully supports turning your iPhone or iPod Touch sideways (landscape mode). I'm often frustrated that so many applications do not support landscape mode. One of the many cool features of the iPhone and iPod touch.
