[prMac.com] Frankfurt, Germany - Greenstones today is pleased to introduce ThereIam 1.0 for iPhone 3GS/4/4S, their new Social Networking app that allows users to post custom messages to Facebook or Twitter automatically whenever they change location. The geosocial app lets users set a red pushpin in a street level Google Map, each pin indicating a frequently visited location, such as home, work, or gym. Upon leaving any set location or arriving at another, Therelam automatically posts news of the change of location to Facebook or Twitter. The app continuously tracks location using very little battery power, and messages can be sent even if the app is not running.
Therelam includes several features that make its use simple and convenient. First, users can set up dozens of red pushpin locations all over a city or all over the world. Second, each pushpin defines not only a specific location, but also a user-set zone surrounding it. This zone is called an Area, and each New Area can be adjusted to include a circle with a diameter of between 300 and 5,000 meters (.19 and 3.1 miles). The larger the Area the lower the sensitivity of the app to changes in location, and the less likely it is to interpret location changes incorrectly.
The third innovative feature included in Therelam is the ability to independently control each Area, turning it On or Off in the app. Fourth, users can create custom messages that are posted on entering or leaving an Area. For example, a user might create the following message when they enter the zone near their workplace, "I'll be at work soon. See you then!" On leaving the zone, a different message is posted, "I'm leaving work now. I should be back home in 30 minutes." Each Area can have its own entering and leaving message, and each message can be set to post to Twitter, Facebook, or both.
Fifth, Therelam includes a Messages page that displays a log of all the messages the app has automatically posted. Each entry indicates the time sent, the message posted, and the name of the Area that triggered the message. Finally, the app does not disclose the user's exact location or coordinates. That information remains private - only the user's comings and goings, to and from specific Areas, are made public.
