Ratings and Reviews



So cool! My friend and I were able to chat flawlessly on an airplane! Using the Bluetooth option when he was in another row on the plane let us get around annoying wifi fees.

Also helped me ask what the homework was in my huge boring lecture hall class where I don't know anyone lol. Any app that is a workaround for my social anxiety is a 💯 in my book!

Great app!


This app is great for communicating with the community around you while remaining completely anonymous! The range has been updated to 250 miles so you can talk to a wide base of people. Overall great app!

It's good


University of Alaska Fairbanks uses this app. It good

Developer Response

Hey there! Thanks for the feedback. For security purposes we scatter the location of trails to prevent behavior against our terms of use.

Accuracy is limited to 300 feet, so the location of a trail could be 300 feet in any direction. Keep in mind, locations of users are NOT tracked, it's rather a geotag that represents the location a trail is posted from.

To address your friend's concerns, we've hidden the distance meter for trails if you're within a mile of their tagged location.
