Ask Around
New from, Ask Around is an app that allows you to immediately view, connect with and share the real-time conversations happening around you.
***Ask Around is currently awaiting approval from Apple.***

Ask Around is a location-aware chat app that uses location as the sole context in connecting people in real-time conversation. Have a question about your immediate surroundings? Interested in what people are talking about across town? Fire up the Ask Around app and you’ll be instantly connected with conversation near or far – it’s that simple. With Ask Around, you can control how big or little you want the conversation to be across yards, blocks or miles. There’s no need to sign up for a new service or create a profile -- just login using your Facebook ID and you’re all set.


See what’s being said nearby: Tune in to live conversations as they unfold feet, yards or miles from you – or start one yourself.

...or far away: Are you in San Francisco but are dying to know what Ask Around users are saying in Austin, LA or New York? Pick a spot on the interactive map and find out.

Save spots you care about: Taking off soon? Save your location – be it a bar, classroom, hotel lobby or street corner – and watch the conversation continue, even after you’ve moved on.

Get timely local advice - Need to find the restaurant with the shortest wait? Dying to find the closest Starbucks? Share and receive advice from people who are right there with you.
