[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Wallit, the only geo-social app connecting people to places through one-of-a-kind multi-media messages on augmented reality walls, today announced version 1.1 featuring brand new "Super Walls" to link the marks of similar places from around the globe. For example, when waiting in the line for the new iPad today, Apple Fanatics in San Francisco can see what their counterparts in New York and in all other Apple Stores around the world are saying about the debut. Or fans in stadiums can move the real-time "smack talk" to the virtual walls in arenas during the March Madness tournament. Fans need to be "there" to write on the March Madness walls. Wallit has also been named a "New and noteworthy" app in the Apple App Store, and today's news comes just ten days after Wallit went live in the App Store.
Wallit allows users to view and "post" to virtual walls in places all around the world in the same way they do to a business or friend's social network profile - providing a unique glimpse into a collection of content that was created by people who were actually there. Unlike other geo-location apps, Wallit allows people to see who else is present, interact with one another and leave their mark at various settings - from sporting events to romantic hotspots.
"People have long sought to leave a part of themselves in a specific location, like signing a hotel guest book. Wallit is a perfect marriage of old meets new," says Dr. Veysel Berk, founder and CEO of Wallit. "Now with the 'Super Walls,' people sharing a similar experience in different locations can also unite and interact. This is the first of many exciting updates as we continue to improve the way people connect with places around the world."
The Wallit app is free and does not require the creation of an account or user ID. For more information, a list of virtual wall locations and images, please visit wallit app website or contact Kim Angell.

Wallit socializes augmented reality experiences. Its geo-social app is a platform for people to create one-of-a-kind multi-media messages on virtual walls located around the world. Going far beyond a check in, Wallit is a new kind of geo-social network that exhibits the character of places. Its virtual walls provide a canvas for people to discover and share sentiments. Wallit sparks intrigue as walls are revealed through Smartphones, unveiling location-specific content and inviting opportunity to connect with others who are there. By capturing people's sentiments on virtual walls created during the moments they spent there, Wallit's videos and observations open up, for the first time, the opportunity to preserve location-specific experiences.
