Innovative Social App Gives You Real-Time Information About the People Around You
WASHINGTON, May 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SocialRadar, the application that gives you real-time information about the people around you, announced today a new, free app for Google Glass. The app is the first of its kind for the Glass device, combining real-time social network information from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare and Google+ with geo-location data from your Glass device to empower you to make smarter real-world connections.
The SocialRadar app for Google Glass is available for free at http://socialradar-glass.appspot.com
"We see a huge potential market for our app related to wearables and we're excited to be one of the early leaders in tech development," said Michael Chasen, founder and chief executive officer at SocialRadar. "Our app provides tremendous value to wearable technology by making you more socially intelligent about the people around you. According to IDC, wearable devices, like Google Glass, will reach 19 million units in 2014 and then dramatically grow to 111.9 million in 2018."
When you walk into a room SocialRadar for Google Glass quickly and discreetly tells you who is there, how you are connected and what they have been up to on social networks, right in front of your eye. The app gives you all the information you need for a personal, well informed, interaction. For example, you will always remember other people's names as your Glass will know everyone in the room. You will no longer struggle with what to talk about because your Glass will pull all of the person's social feeds to let you know what they have been doing. And, you will not need to wonder if you are missing anyone important at the event, as your Glass will tell you everyone in the room that you know.
"When we heard about Google Glass, we immediately got excited about developing an app for Glass. We were one of the first beta testers in D.C. region," said Chasen, "We see huge potential with Glass to fundamentally change the way people meet and connect, by mixing social media profiles and location in real time."
