Difficulty in finding long-lasting friends in your community? Tired of dating apps? uGeo social app will help you join groups, follow community organizers. Meet people and do stuff together. This geo-social platform is only at the very beginning of its journey, could be something that we use every day in the near future. It has to act quickly though before the competition becomes too fierce. Based in San Francisco, California US, and founded in 2020 this could be the future of meeting new, legit, safe people around you (anywhere).
The message of the app is quite clear, here is how uGeo Co-Founder Abiodun Johnson describes it: “At uGeo, we believe that people have a natural need to orient themselves geographically and connect with the people and things around them. As such, we exist to aggregate and optimize location data for people to search, share, and communicate around real, local experiences. Our goal is to make the world better by bringing communities back together to make meaningful change.”
Worth to mention this app is very new and not yet available in many locations. Seems like it is only available in the USA. Keenly waiting for it to be launched in Europe to really try it out. There are quite many things that uGeo allows users to do. At the moment of writing this, uGeo is available in 29 countries.
Importantly, the app allows you to discover and share events. You will be able to see who has RSVP’d and after or during the event it will be easy to find anyone who was there. (at least those who use the app). It does kind of remind of other apps such as meetup.com. The beauty here is that there are more options than that.
uGeo is a real-time-based app. So you can fund your friends or community members nearby, invite them to meet you, and have cool, new conversations. Drop a pin on the map, choose for how long it will be visible and you are good to go. To be honest this app looks very promising.
Find interesting and cool places around you. It shows locations where you can eat, drink, sightsee and shop. This app could be very useful when (if) it launches internationally. When traveling this could be the app to use and find local residents that can show you around – quite arguably one of the best ways to check out new cities and spots that only locals know about.
The plan must be that the app first is launched in one location, gain attraction, get some feedback, fix the issues and errors and then launch in more and more cities and countries. It has to get traction for it to work. Seems like a chicken and an egg problem, you would not really use an app that others are not using, so how can you scale it? My guess is with heavy marketing and a hard push on advertising for it to be noticed and used by many people at the same time. What are your thoughts?
uGeo is available on Android and Apple. You can get it here:
