Life’s more fun when you’re spontaneous and spend time with others in real life. Get out and do more with your friends!

Cirqit makes getting together with friends fun and easy by combining group messaging with private, temporary location sharing. Whether you're out with a group, on your way to meet someone specific, or planning something to do, use Cirqit to remove the headaches associated with meeting up so you can spend less time getting together and more time being together.

Cirqit makes the most of your face-to-face time with others by replacing inefficient text messages with a visual and engaging app built for getting two or more people together.

Stop wasting time texting back and forth and jumping from app to app to see where people are, figure out where to go, and how to get there.

Cirqit combines two main features – a real-time map (people and places) and group chat - in a uniquely simple and clean user interface. It's a one-stop shop that gives you everything you need to make meeting up more efficient and engaging.

Here's how it works:

· Starting a Cirqit is as simple as sending a text message - your contacts don’t even need the app installed.

· Cirqit respects your privacy. Invitees see who else is invited before they join the Cirqit. You always have full control of who sees your information.

· Your location is shared only for the duration of the Cirqit. This makes it easy for you to know where everyone is, view destinations on a map and chat to stay connected.

· Set an expiration time for your Cirqit from 1-12 hours. After that time, the Cirqit closes and everything disappears.

· Cirqit is battery-efficient. Your GPS turns on sparingly and only when needed.

App Features:

Forget user names. No adding friends or friend requests. Cirqit works with your phone number and integrates seamlessly with your existing address book. Spend quality time with friends and family instead of meeting new people.

Easy. No noise, information overflow or extra bells & whistles. Cirqit is acutely focused on a simple, yet frequent, use case when people meet up.

Safe. Each Cirqit is private and temporary. You only share with who needs to know, when they need to know. The Cirqit automatically expires, but you can always jump out whenever you want.

Fast. Press one button to see what people are up to and where to go. 10x easier than texting back and forth, managing multiple conversations or annoying giant group chats.

Open. Cirqit is cross-platform and available on multiple smartphone devices but you can include anybody who has a valid phone number, even if they don’t have the app, and they can participate via a mobile browser. You can include everybody who’s relevant to the situation.

Dynamic. Stay up to date with friends’ ETAs. Add or remove people and places as plans change. Collaborate on plans in real-time.

Battery-efficient. Each Cirqit is temporary and runs in the background, but we also use GPS sparingly only when needed.

Use Cirqit to:
- coordinate a night out with friends
- share your ETA with your significant other
- show people where you’re meeting up
- quickly share directions without having to send or lookup an address
- find friends at an event or at a wide open space
- see what friends are up to and whether their down to hang out
- hands-free sharing of ETA while driving without texting
- let parent or spouse know you’re safe when on way home

Simple. Private. Temporary. Cross-platform. Battery-efficient. So the next time that you're meeting up with someone, start a Cirqit!

We're always excited to hear from you! If you have feedback, questions, or concerns, please email us at: info@cirqitapp.com

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Good app but could be better


First off, the good…I can see this being useful if you want to see what’s up with your friends, quick status updates or if anybody is up for going out. Not too much to it in terms of the interface — user friendly and minimalistic. One or two times using it and you’ll get it and how it applies to your social circle.
Now, the not so good… It did crash or hang for me a couple times, especially when your reception is not good. I like the fact that each session is temporary but I think there should be a way to adjust the expiration time in case you need to extend it. Also, there should be a way to save a group instead of putting the same people in every time you want to send them an invite. It’s true that your friends don’t need the app to join a group but the web version is somewhat slow, so need to convince them to install to expect any real interaction.
Overall, I can make a case for the app and so I give it 4 stars. With a few improvements, it could be a lot better!

Location App with Good Battery Usage?!?


This app does two things and does them well — mapping and messaging. You initiate a session based on request/acknowledge versus some of the other apps which allow you to send out your location. Being able to put a meeting location up is pretty useful also, so you really have everything you need all in one map.
The chat feature is pretty basic — no emojis, pictures, videos, etc. but it’s very fast. Once the timer runs out all your chat history, location and map data disappears. Like it never even happened. Also, the app doesn’t drain your battery. You can set the timer up to 12 hours so I was skeptical it would keep your GPS running for that long. I’ve used some similar apps in the past and they were battery hogs so I had to delete them. I’ve run several Cirqits for hours at a time and so far never seen any battery issues, so what they did seems to work.

Everyday useful


Cirqit is super convenient and super useful! My husband and I send each other a Cirqit literally everyday on our way home from work to give each other an idea of when we’ll be home. It’s great because we can visually see each other on a map and how close we are to getting home. We can chat on it too, so love that we’re not leaving the app to communicate with each other. We also use it anytime we’re meeting up with friends to see where everyone is relative to each other and where we’re going (the map shows people AND places). I just send out a Cirqit before stepping out, put the phone back into my purse and then go – love it!
