Shout Around is a cellphone app that will help people at conventions connect. They are looking for support through this new KickStarter campaign.
Shout Around provides a simple way to connect nearby friends and followers with vis your phone’s geolocation. You can send private messages, create public “Shouts” to tell everyone who’s following you what’s going on, Check-in at VIP locations to unlock badges, add photos and customize your profile with Skins, and add new friends using QR code without giving out your personal info.
I think this app has a lot of potential and there site is looking for comments and suggestions. I know that something like this would be a bonus to find people and do photoshoots at a Con.
