Review Sonar: Friends Nearby

Sergei Petrov
Sonar lets you find friends and interesting people who are close to you, and displays them on a map. Program are not even a month, and it is actively used by over 300,000 people worldwide, and the program itself has received positive reviews from leading international magazines (New York Times, CNN, etc.). The service itself has been fully translated into Russian, so there is a high probability that the service will be popular with us.
What makes Sonar? The program reads all of your contacts from Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare and exports out of position data of your friends and acquaintances. The program also broadcasts your location and shows the exact location of those friends who use sonar.
When you first start and register the program asks you to enter data on social networks and invite all the contacts to use Sonar. There also will mark the friends that you have already registered and used by the application. Hopefully, the developers integrate Sonar and social network Vkontakte, because in this case the application will be able to lure the lion's share of active users Android-smartphone.

Main features of Sonar for Android:

  • Integration with social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Linkedin);
  • Display on the map of people with similar interests (based on analysis of your interests in social networks);
  • The ability to publish status and alert people about what you do;
  • Program in the background, updates the location;
  • At any time, disappear from view and disable broadcasting location.
Under ideal conditions (when Sonar is used by all of your contacts from social networks), the program is an indispensable assistant and main generator of random and spontaneous meetings. I'm not talking about what to see to it what the other person - in itself, quite exciting.
Summary. Sonar - an extremely long-term program, which displays the social integration to a whole new level. Who would not say that about the privacy and confidentiality, it is for the future of such services. In these directions, just running Google, developing their social network (Google+) and creating projects, like augmented reality glasses Google Glass. In general, try and invite your friends!
