Chat with
people within one mile of you

Chances are if you’ve ever been lost in a neighbourhood, or can’t find the coffee shop you’re meeting a friend at, you ask someone around you.

And then, if you’ve ever had that awkward moment of asking someone who gives conflicting directions, flaps their arms and says, “I’m new here too!”, or just seem to be plain odd, you’ll wish there was another way. Well, there might be.

Popcorn is simple but fun: join a chat room of anonymous people within a one mile radius of you. You can share messages and images, see what’s going down in your ‘hood, and find out where that elusive coffee shop is.

It’s all anonymous, which means you won’t suddenly get followed down the road, and your exact location within that mile is never revealed. This new community building iPhone app is taking off in some of the major cities of the world as their map reveals. It needs two people present to start up a new room and so users in locations out in the boonies are not going to be chit-chatting just yet, but you can have a nosey and see what people are talking about right now in Tokyo, San Francisco, Amsterdam, London, and other major cities.

Instant tourist support in your pocket! Also good for those, “Did anyone else see that?!” moments, and perhaps even making a new friend. Get the free app from iTunes here and let us know if it helps you out. Did you make any friends?
