iFob 2.0 for the 3G iPhone

Posted June 11, 2008 at 12:48pm by iClarified
iCloseBy.com today announces the latest release of iFob, the popular real-space social networking software. As an accepted member of both the Apple Developer Network and Apple's iPhone Developer Program, iCloseBy.com has used the Apple iPhone SDK and has developed iFob 2.0 for Apple's consideration. iFob 2.0, including all of the functionality of the earlier versions of iFob (still available free download for Windows PCs), now has the unified look-and-feel of other Apple native iPhone software apps, as well as a newly added ability to 'real-space-real-time' locate other willing iFob users from GPS-like cell-tower triangulation.

iFob is unique software which uses the built-in Wi-Fi communication of Apple iPhone, iPods and PCs, and turns these devices into homing beacons, broadcasting, or just listening, for other close-by copies of iFob. With iFob, people create tiny social networking profiles that are carried around on their iPhone or PC, which are easily changed depending on the situation and presence of other iFob users who are close by. Unlike social networking sites such as Facebook or My Space, iFob only displays lists of iFob users who are actually in the same hotspots at the same time as each other, meaning that iFob users will be close enough to look up and exchange smiles. iFob is used as an icebreaker to real conversations.

iFob software for PCs is still a free download from http://www.icloseby.com/. iFob 2.0 software for the iPhone 3G is currently awaiting approval by Apple to be distributed at no cost through the Apple store.

About iCloseBy.com: iCloseBy manufactures the iFob(TM) line of software products for the Apple iPhone, Apple iPod Touch, Apple OSX and Windows PCs. iFob is Wi-Fi software which turns the iPhone, iPod Touch, and laptops into social networking "beacons" which let people meet each other in any public hotspot. By only showing connections which are so close by that they could look up and smile at each other, iFob brings reality back to social networking. iFob software for PCs is still available as a free download from the company web site http://www.icloseby.com/.
