How does it work?
It’s a simple setting up where you are only asked for your mobile number for sign up in the network. This number will be use to verify the account through a short text message that will receive which would contain the activation code needed for the next step.
Once the account has been verified, an alias is requested. This alias will only be used for the notification service and will not be saved in our servers.
Next, GeoFriends, using your mobile’s contacts address book, will match with it’s server, people who has signed up in the platform to search for all your friends and will send them a request notification that they would have to accept so as to share your location.
GeoFriends is a cross-platform application available for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone, which gives support to communicate with your friends through the mobile geo-location. You can create events (or meeting points) attached to a chosen coordinate through a map and invite your contacts will receive immediately a PUSH notification so they can confirm or reject their attendance.
You can also tell your friends exactly where you are so as they can locate you in the neighborhood. They would receive a notification showing a map with your location. Furthermore, you could publish it in your Facebook wall!
People’s privacy is something where we’ve focused an special effort. Each person can customize and set up their privacy as they desire. It’s very important to us that people feel confortable and safe when they are using GeoFriends.
For this purpose, you can choose with who share your location, setting for each contact in the app some parameters like who can see you, enabled time range, visible week’s day or location's accuracy. Moreover, you can turn the service off, during some week’s day or time interval.
