Sweetrlife Technologies Inc., today introduced Sweetr™, a breakthrough location-based mobile application that helps people discover new friends and things of interest in their vicinity and abroad. People can use Sweetr to see who is nearby and send text, audio, photos and videos to one another or even play a word guessing game with each other in an attempt to meet new friends.
"With Sweetr, we have reimagined what social can be and how the smartphone could change the way people meet new friends, find new places, and have fun doing it. We call it social serendipity and this is the direction social networking is headed on mobile,” says Sweetr’s cofounder and CEO John Davis. “This is where people will find their next friends, or the next great night club or restaurant. We feel that future relationships will first form this way online.”
A Sweetr Way
Whether on the bus, at a conference, a coffee shop, a library or a sporting event, people with similar interests can now use their iPhones to communicate, share and play with others and make new friends and fun connections.
Sweetr represents the next generation of social networking with audio SMS, texting, photo and video sharing all built in for free. Sweetr uses geo-location as well as shared interests to see who is nearby and looking to make connections with likeminded individuals.
Sweetr also differentiates with a built in word draw guessing game Draw Breaker™. This social game helps users break the ice in a fun and friendly way.
“We have known for some time that the online social world is going mobile and more towards serendipitous meetings,” says Sweetr Chairman Bruce Croxon. “We are excited to release an app that we feel addresses this trend ".
Sweetr for iPhone is available today for English and Mandarin users, free of charge, at Apple's App Store under the Social Networking / Lifestyle categories. It can be downloaded at (http://goo.gl/u3c9s) or http://www.sweetr.com.
"Facebook now connects over a billion people for maintaining existing relationships, but how does that help you meet new people? We think your going to find them on Sweetr, where social discovery compliments Facebook”, says John Davis. “With over 3 billion people on mobile in the next three years we are truly excited about the potential to fulfill the Internet’s original promise of connecting people through technology.”
According to Juniper Research, revenue from mobile search & social discovery will reach $15 billion by 2017, nearly three times the revenue it expects to be generated by these markets in 2012, with ad space in these markets representing prime real estate for advertisers, Sweetr is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this fast growing market.
