    Oh I’m sure it will be used in both ways, just depends on in what ratios. Thanks for the response. Bests, James.

    Thanks for the comment, James. Interesting point about it being for the “socially awkward.” I would say it’s more about facilitating meeting strangers “IRL” who you might otherwise have no way to know you had anything in common with. But I hear what you’re saying. Thanks for the comment! – Ryan

    Very interesting app, I wouldn’t have a problem approaching someone who I had a match with or whatever, I mean if they’ve got the app downloaded, then they’re probably looking to meet people.

    I guess it really comes down to why whoever wants to meet you. It certainly seems like an evolution in networking, but could also be a crutch for the socially awkward, which I’m not trying to knock, but in that light, seems to me to be something one might be embarrassed to use.

    I’d still use it though.

    I’ve also heard this from a lot of people so it’s definitely a concern. But I think I would only turn it on when I’m out and about at an event somewhere. Turning it on at a conference like SXSW would kind of suck though since outlets are so hard to come by and you’re on your phone the whole time. Very good points.

    Like all location-aware apps, it is indeed a battery hog since it has to run in the background at all times if you want to find new people. It does allow “pausing” when you want to save your battery. But definitely a point to consider, thanks!

    It’s a battery killer and will never catch on.
