Cloak is a new app for iPhone that scrapes social networks to help you avoid your 'friends' in the real world.

Cloak scrapes Instagram and Foursquare to let you know where all your friends, "friends," and nonfriends are at all times so you never have to run into that special someone. Think of it as the antisocial network.

The developer says support for more social networks and features will be added in the future.

- Why isn't Facebook included as a service?!?! We're working on it. Most of us have thousands of Facebook friends, and with the way Cloak polls data, we want to ensure the freshest, most relevant stuff possible. It's coming though.

- Why isn't Twitter included as a service?!?! Well, the location data just isn't there. Most users have it turned off and even when it's on, it's quite vague.

You can download Cloak from the App Store for free.
