[prMac.com] Brooklyn, New York - Woern LLC has announced the launch of version 1.2 of Jagimo, a free social networking app for iOS devices. Jagimo lets you mash up ideas and photos with random people from all over the world. Designed specifically for iOS device users looking for a creative way to interact with new people, JAGIMO is a social brainstorming and networking service based on chains of messages started by one user and responded to by other users chosen randomly by the server. Together, the participants in the message chain create a new kind of object called a "jagimo."
It's easy to use. Someone starts the jagimo by entering a topic, creating the first message with words and/or photos, and then "tossing" it. The Jagimo server receives it and sends it on to a bunch of other randomly chosen people. Those people "catch" the jagimo and have a limited time to respond. After a certain limit is reached, the jagimo gets published, and users can comment on it. Woern LLC intends for JAGIMO to become a creative tool for people find new friends from around the world.
"I love the randomness of [JAGIMO], calling on all these different users to respond to various topics. You never know who will add to your idea," said Woern LLC president and co-founder Erich Wood. "It's simple, fun, creative, and a little addictive."
Woern LLC director and co-founder Ernesto Santos says a jagimo is "a little snapshot of ideas from random users. The fact that it is built within a matter of minutes by people from around the world is really appealing."
