Search for Instagrams based on location and chat about them with friends
August 17, 2012 in Social Networking
[prMac.com] Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam - Mobile app developer MeSixty is announcing the release of Chatworthy, an iPad app full of features that gives its users a variety of new ways to discover interesting Instagrams. The app allows users to select any location in the world and view Instagram posts geo-tagged there with the most relevant posts shown first. With a full featured instant messaging platform built-in, users can share multiple posts that they find chat-worthy with their friends and chat privately about them.
"Chatworthy is a way to discover content that surrounds any location, ranked by its 'Chatworthiness', i.e. how likely you are to comment or talk about it. All calculated by our proprietary algorithms, it's pretty nifty stuff!" said Keeran Janin, co-founder of MeSixty. "Most app news feeds are sorted by time, so unless you're online 24/7, content is easily missed. Content you discover with Chatworthy on the other hand is about a place you choose and how closely it's related to you, it could be many months old, but will be relevant to you, that's the magic of the app."

Always the Most Relevant Results Available:
To give you the best results possible, posts are ranked using an algorithm that makes sure you are seeing only the most relevant and chat-worthy. The algorithm takes into account a number of factors such as relationship with the author of the post, mutual friends, degrees of separation and the popularity of that post.
Extra Functionality Beyond Browsing and Chatting:
As well as being able to follow users and like posts, Chatworthy presents the comments like a public chat room letting you easily comment and read comments from others. The app includes a bookmark feature that not only lets you save and check back on posts you have found but also allows you to bookmark locations to see any new Instagrams posted there in future.
