[prMac.com] Anchorage, Alaska - Design-PT, Inc. today is delighted to announce Here Say 2.0, an update to their popular virtual bulletin board for iPhone and iPod Touch. Developed specifically to leverage the iPhone's unique capabilities and interface, Here Say offers iPhone users a fun, fast and easy way to share and discover what is going on around them.
Here Say provides access to a whole new virtual space which is location specific. It identifies the users location and retrieves any messages that have been posted nearby. Post restaurant and event reviews, recommendations on what to see in the location, immediate traffic updates, converse with people around the world, or simply say I was here. The uses for this unique social network are endless.
"We are very pleased and excited to announce Here Say 2.0" said Orion Matthews, President, Design-PT, Inc. "This innovation shakes up traditional social media rules by connecting Information and Location, instead of Information and People."
With a focus on simplicity and ease-of-use, Here Say enables users to be as creative as they desire with their postings. No user account is required to use the application, and all usage is anonymous. Posted messages are specifically limited (140 characters) to help keep them easy to read at-a-glance, and may even include a photo. Users can respond to any posts they see with a short message and optional photo.
* Post notes with photos (optional), geocoded to current location
* Comment on notes with photos (optional)
* Radius slider can filter notes based on proximity
* My/All button allows the user to see everything, or only the notes posted or commented on
* See where note was posted on a map
* Report abusive messages for removal
* Touch an image to see it in full-screen
Additionally, Here Say sports a nice My/All button which displays everything, or only the notes that were posted or commented on. A handy Radius slider allows the user to filter notes based on proximity. Among Here Say's most unique features is the company's World of Here Say website. Displaying a global view, users can see at-a-glance where a note was posted on a world map.
* iPhone or iPod Touch 2.2.1 or later (supports 3.0)
Pricing and Availability:
Here Say 2.0 for iPhone is free and available exclusively through Apple's App Store worldwide.
