a social network on your iPhone to make you… antisocial

Cloak

What if there was something that would help us not to have to talk to anyone ? That’s the goal that Cloak has.

To achieve this, this application connects to the social networks we use (Foursquare, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook) and alerts us if a contact has posted a message whose location is close to us . This way, if we’re on the street, Cloak will let us know that that someone we don’t want to see is coming. Quickly, change sidewalks!

I’ve done a test with the location of my friends, although almost all of them don’t share their location. Here’s the result:

We can even choose the radius of action that we want to use, and whether we want it to serve everyone or just a list of people we have marked (maybe we don’t want to be isolated but avoid certain people). A very basic application, free, with a good design and that we will never want to see installed on our friends’ iPhones.
