    hey guys,

    wordsss, myself, and three others have been working on an iphone app. it's just about app store ready and we're looking for feedback and/or alpha testers (through testflight).

    app demo

    basically you can create a "spot" anywhere on a map and send messages/photos within it. the more messages in a "spot" the larger it will grow (it also shrinks over time). everything is done with push notifications and makes the app very "live".

    search

    using the map you can find "spots" other people have created. "spots" with numbers in the middle are groups, and make it easier to navigation through the map (tap to explode).

    it would be cool to get some general thoughts, and questions. looking to clear things up for people coming in with fresh eyes.

    thanks!

    Is it possible to create group spots that are shared only via invite?

    Integration with facebook events/google calendar/ical etc could be cool too.

    I should have added, there are no user accounts. You just open the app and start looking around. You can change your name / photo, but an account is "created" using your phone id when you first open the app.

    Right now we're not looking to have it be "friend" based — something more craigslist-esk.

    Can't use it since I own an android at the moment BUT from the videos and your description maybe I can suggest color themed dots?:

    - Red dots for places with negative feedback, maybe you can find a way to filter some keywords that will help you achieve this

    - Blue dots for the opposite, places with good "reviews" (or whatever color you think is better)

    • Interesting idea. we currently do have color themed dots. Green for active and gray for in active.wordssssss1/2

    Really nice idea. Simple. Can see this being really popular for sports events/festivals etc

    Lovely Idea rosem. Best of luck with the release. I agree better colours for spots would be an improvement but as a MVP to get the idea across, this is great.

    tagline / description feedback appreciated:

    spo.tt — say anywhere.

    spo.tt is a new way to communicate with the world around you. Share messages, photos, and updates with a spot. A spot you create or one that exists — a spot anywhere in the world that anyone can join. Talk to people you already know. Or people you’re about to meet. Say what you know. Learn what you don’t.

    This app is a fun place to be, has a very nice oldschool internet flavor, like irc or NT, lot's of potential in it.

    and I love the icon, great work!

    Wish you lot's of success!
