If you wish to integrate your social networks with an app that offers location sharing options, then all you need is Snap! Snapp is a free social network app for Android and iOS devices that uses a location technology that comes with indoors maps. With the help of this app you can integrate your social network profiles from Facebook, FourSquare, Twitter and friendswhere, post images and messages from you location, automatically check-in to places and more.
Snapp App For Android And iOS
The good thing about this app is that it not only brings together your social network profiles but also comes with a robust location tracking technology to make your social profiles “truly social”.
To start, simply login with your supported social network accounts (e.g. Twitter, Facebook or FourSquare). Once logged in you will be taken to the map view, indicating your current location. You can begin tracking your social contacts via Snapp, provided they also have the app installed on their iPhone, iPad or Android device. As the indoor maps are collected via crowdsourcing, it might take some time to populate them.
Help People Find You In A Hotel or Shopping Mall With Indoor Tracking
If you are located in an area for which indoor maps are currently available, you’ll get the option to switch between indoor and outdoor map views. In other words, you can let your friends track your precise location on map (e.g. in a shopping at a mall). The utility of having indoor maps is that you can help your friends find you in indoor locations such as restaurants, hotels, shopping malls and the like.
How To Find A User Using Snapp!
The tabs located at the bottom can be used to post Shouts (status updates) or to Check-In to a location. To find a user, tap on his/her placemarker, which will reveal a similar screen from where you can stay in touch with the user’s status updates and check-ins.
Control When To Share Your Location
Another good feature of Snapp is that it gives you the option to post update after each check-in to ensure that you have control over sharing your location.
