[prMac.com] Bangalore, India - Brainstorm ideas.life today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of bluespots 3.2, an update to their popular social networking app developed for iPhone devices. Providing real-time location updates, including distance and direction, bluespots allows users to discover their friends around them. If a user's friends are using the bluespots application they will be able to discover friends and their friends will discover them.
Connect With People at Your Favorite Hotspots:
There are so many different social interaction and communication apps it's difficult to keep track of them all. Whether you're looking for a dating app, a simple messaging app, or a full blown social meeting place there are bound to be dozens of apps available and they're generally free. That makes it hard to decide what the best ones are, and making the right choice generally comes down to a little good old fashioned trial and error. In this context bluespots - Free is a must have app.
Before you can get started using this app, you'll have to enter your 10 digit phone number, which is used as a tool to connect you with other app users that are nearby. The app also uses Bluetooth technology to find people in the area so you'll need to make sure it's turned on as well, before you attempt to use the app. Once you've done both of these things, you'll be asked to allow the app to access your contacts so that it can match you with any of your contacts that already use the app. The rest is up to you. Bluespots - Free will also allow you to connect with any other users that you haven't met that are close by - as long as they've made themselves visible.
This is a very simple app to use. The main body of the app is a news feed that will show you any nearby users that have made themselves visible, as well as your existing friends that are in the area. It includes their basic information such as a snapshot, their phone number, how far they are from you, and what direction they're traveling towards. It also allows you to connect with them via text message, phone call, or WhatsApp. You can poke your nearby friends. It does work well if you're hoping to run into friends that you might not have known were at the same club - as long as they're using the app too.
If you're looking for a simple social media connection tool to help you hook up with people while you're out and about then Bluespots - Free is a must have option. This app uses Bluetooth and Geo location to discover and connect you with other users that are nearby. It doesn't require clear skies, and even works inside buildings. It doesn't require any Bluetooth pairing or configuration. Users just need to keep their device's Bluetooth and location services on. Since it is based on Low Energy, it is optimized for power consumption and will not drain the device's battery. bluespots can discover and notify users even if it is running in background.
"Ever wondered when you are in a busy place like shopping mall, market, restaurant, club, bar or a pub and wanted to know who is around or wanted to discover your friends nearby. bluespots is an answer to this," explained Dushyant Gaur, founder of Brainstorm ideas.life.
