Shy Yet Curious? You Might Love TownSquare App Released Recently by Devvela
First days of 2017 are marked for Devvela by the Google Play Store release of the very first version of TownSquare, an Android app that makes communication with people nearby easier for those of us who are too shy.
TownSquare founders came to Devvela with the idea of ‘an ice-breaker app’ as they called it themselves. The main feature they wanted built is detecting people nearby who have the app installed and running, and communicating with them. You start TownSquare, see if the person you’re curious about is using it, learn what they share about themselves and start chatting with them.

Every smartphone is a location awareness device. This feature allows for determining and sharing your location with other users through wireless networks (WLAN), GPS, Galileo, and other infrastructure - if you let it, of course. TownSquare utilizes location awareness to simplify the process of getting to know people in your vicinity. Open and communicative TownSquare users are free to show everyone what they think is important about them. Others who are curious yet careful can stay anonymous and provide only a little piece of personal information.

TownSquare app is a great example of how mobile development can help people socialize and make new contacts despite uncertainty and in an environment that might not be very friendly. Devvela has been working on the app’s functionality and UX/UI design from the very beginning, turning the idea into product. Next development stage introducing new amazing features has already been planned.
Later in 2017, the iOS app was released and is now available on the App Store.
