Pokemon Go for real communities
What it does
Modern social media encourages bad habits: isolation, sedentary life style.
Our app lets users pin comments, pictures, and media to specific geo-locations. Other users must go directly to the location to interact with this media.
This has great applications for guided tourism, sharing tips and information, and building a healthy social media platform that encourages physical movement.
