[prMac.com] Milan, Italy - The new proximity social network powered by A-Tono is totally free, intuitive and unique. It allows to connect and communicate in the real time with people who are in the same "circle of proximity" - even if you do not know - also it allows to share in a quickly and easily way some different types of files such as photos, videos, music, presentations, documents and many other ones. The most important characteristic is the immediacy, the possibility of exchanging and having them "here and now" without waiting.
Just you start Swarmbit, the main screen "Map" automatically detects the smartphone position: now you can create your own folder in that area and enter the required information. One of these is the temporary folder duration, which is the number of hours that will remain active and visible on the map (minimum 1 hour and maximum 24 hours). After this time, its content will no longer be available.
A key characteristic of the app is just the "temporary", the possibility of sharing the contents limited in time by downloading them directly and freely from the folder.
The basic condition is that you are into the range previously set: from a minimum of 100 meters to a maximum of 1,000 meters.
The contents downloaded will be stored in MyFiles and will remain available even when the folder is expired or if we move away from the circle of proximity.
Then you can manage, delete or export your files by the main CLOUDS: DropBox, SugarSync and Box.net, so they are always available on your smartphone and on your PC.
Not only as well as being easy-to-use, Swarmbit also has a strong social component: if you enable the Board, you give a chance to the other "swarm members": they can comment the single file and the folder.
Now you can download from the App Store only the beta version for the iPhone, with the aim to collect many feedbacks from users and to improve the app.
Coming soon it is also planned the release for Android and for Windows Phone 7.
