Circle helps users connect with people nearby

There's a feature of most of the current social networks which power hasn't been unleashed yet: location-based recommendations of people. It becomes quite difficult to find and meet new people using Facebook or G+ without a good recommendations engine which focuses on geolocation. Circle comes to solve that issue.

Circle connects to your Facebook and G+ account in order to import data that first, enhances the way you connect with you friends and, second helps you find new potential friends and contacts, according to location and interests. After signing in your social accounts, you'll get to the dashboard which is set in a minimalist white background layout with just three buttons. From the status button, you can control your status mode: offline, connected (you'll messaged if someone's is near) and in networking mode as well as to set your Circle's bio. Tapping the left button will displays a list with your (already) friends, their location and their online/offline status. From there you can invite them to use the app, messages them or show their timeline. Finally, the left button displays the list of people nearby you should get to know.

By swiping up, you can access the Message Center where you can see profile visitors you got and private messages. In addition, you can join more networks issue-related to find more people nearby. This way, location and interest are brought together as the ultimate filter to meet people who share your interests nearby.

Circle is a highly recommended and well-crafted app which sets out an original social app concept.

Lost dogs. Best fishing spots. Free kids events. Closed roads. Flash mobs. Amazing, scary, exciting and crazy [what? “things”, “stories”?] are happening everywhere. The Circle community is there to help you navigate your world.
