When it comes to online dating, there are plenty of apps for i OS and Android users-from Tinder to to Ok Cupid.But what if you’re just looking to meet new people and don’t want to worry about being on a “date”?Users can find people who want to meet up for coffee, meet up at the park for lunch or go for an evening run.If the company plans things right, they have the perfect opportunity to reach the younger mobile generation and compete against Meet Co-founder Jeff Hodnett says, “Meetup just isn’t right for natural encounters – it’s too rigid.
Users will then receive a notification when the app suggests a hangout.
The new social app has just a little over 1,000 users who are currently residing in the San Francisco Bay Area and Peninsula.
Until now, most people have looked to Meet Up.com,which is one of the largest networks of local groups.
Meet Up makes it easy to organize a local group or find existing meetup groups.
Hodnett and Edwards partnered up to build the Wiith app so they could meet new people, as they were both new to the Bay Area.
Besides making new friends, the app is valuable for those who are visiting a new city.
