[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - While there's no shortage of social networking apps these days, an overwhelming number of them suffer from an essential and inescapable weakness: they simply aren't very social. That is, they don't enable users to go outside of their small inner circle so they can enlarge and enhance their social life. However, one new app is poised to change all of that by promising to put the "social" back in social networking: Byber.
Created by Byber LLC and available at no cost, Byber lets users meet fun and interesting new people, connect with friends, and explore what their neighbourhood has to offer - and all through the comfort and convenience of their mobile device. While there's plenty to like about Byber, there are two core elements that make it unique, impressive, and well worth the no-cost download: versatility and functionality.
In terms of versatility, Byber is ideal for all kinds of users, from those in the mood to meet someone new, to those on an urban adventure, to those organizing a spontaneous or scheduled get together with friends, and the list goes on. In terms of functionality, Byber has a suite of built-in tools that make it easy for users to enjoy the app however and whenever they want. For example, users can tap the:
* "Flirt" icon to casually and playfully show some interest in a guy or girl, and see if there's a mutual spark
* "Discover" icon to explore new bars and restaurants in the area
* "Map" icon to find new bars, restaurants, clubs, coffee shops and other neighbourhood destinations - without getting lost
* "Byber Events" icon to quickly plan a get together with friends, such as a birthday party, bachelor party and any other event
* "Share" icon to connect with any other Byber user - whether it's someone they've known for years, or met just a moment ago
* "Images" icon to upload photos for friends to enjoy
Plus, users can create a custom profile that includes their picture and brief bio (e.g. job, status, interests), as well as any pending drink or event RSVP requests. They can also connect with friends and fans directly from the app via Facebook, Twitter, SMS and email.
"We created Byber to bring a whole new level of fun, excitement and adventure back into the social networking world," commented Christopher Keir of Byber LLC. "And just as importantly, we made it extremely easy and simple. It's the only app that users need to connect with old friends and make new ones, as they enlarge and enhance their social life every day!"

* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
