Clustr: The Social Compass Available on the Apple App Store

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 15, 2015) - Available now! Clustr: The Social Compass offers a new way to connect with your social network. On the Clustr map, you can see where groups of people are hanging out around you. For each location, whether it's a bar, club, restaurant, or any other hotspot, Clustr will break down how many girls versus guys are there, display their age information, and if any of the Clustr users are your Facebook friends. Unlike other social geotargeted tracking apps, on Clustr everyone is anonymous.

On Clustr, each user's location is tracked anonymously, in real time, for three hours after each time they open the app. The size of the clustrs on the map indicates how many Clustr users are in a given area; the color shows the girl to guy ratio; and the white friend icon indicates if those users are your Facebook friends. Tapping on a specific venue within a clustr will display a list of all the users currently there. If you want to know who one of those Facebook friends actually is, tapping on their user icon will send a notification asking that friend to "reveal" their identity to you. If they accept, you'll both be able to see each other on the map for up to three hours.

Clustr passively tracks users using Foursquare API, so users aren't required to constantly update their locations. Clustr is the first app available on the App Store that integrates this type of technology.

"Clustr was born out of a need…" says founder Danny Matthews, "to figure out where to go out, or where to go next -- a common problem for our target age groups. Most of the time, you want to go where you know people, or at least where there will be people your own age. Clustr gives you that information, in real time, thus eliminating the guesswork of figuring out where people are."

Clustr: The Social Compass is now available worldwide for free in the Apple App Store. The app was developed by Fueled, a mobile development company based in New York City.
