GoFind! has been released

I'm really excited to announce that we've launched the Android application we've been working on called GoFind!. It's available in the Android Market for purchase right now. So, what is GoFind!?

GoFind! is an application that was designed to solve a very specific problem - getting two people together who are trying to find each other. For example, let's say you're at Lollapalooza or Taste of Chicago, or you're just in the park. But you look around and realize...you need to meet up with your friend, and you have no idea where they are. Now what? You can text each other and try to give vague directions ("I'm by this big tree...you know, the one we were by earlier? By the other tree?") or you can call each other and attempt to be heard over the noise ("Where are you?" "What?!!" "What?"). OR, you can now GoFind! each other.

Using Global Positioning Systems, the internal accelerometer and text messaging the app is really powerful, but very simple to use. Try it! You will be lead directly to your friend as the initiator of the GoFind! request, and as the Target you will see what direction your friend is coming from. It's pretty awesome.

The finder screen points the finder to their friend:



















The target screen tells the target where their friend is coming from:
