New Pocket Life iPhone Version 2.0

February 16th, 2010

Our newest iPhone version makes location-based social networking more interactive and now includes geo-tagged photos as well as simple ways to store and share favourite places.

The new iPhone version of Pocket Life is out on the shelves of Apple’s iTunes App Stores worldwide. Adding to its existing features to interact and view friends’ real time location on interactive maps the new version now allows to upload and share geo-tagged photos with friends and view them on maps right away.

Other improvements include: favourite places can easily be stored and shared with connected friends and social communication features have been improved. Users can now share their thoughts using a quick status update button and choose from pre-set emoticons to express their mood.

The new iPhone version of Pocket Life is available as a full paid version and a free “lite” version. The lite version has all of the functionality, but limits the number of connected friends you can see on a map.

This iPhone version is the starting point of a ambitious roadmap for 2010. We will roll out Pocket Life across numerous more languages, add fun social features, even more interactivity on the iPhone and support for Google Android.
