Meeting people might have just got a lot easier. A new messaging app, Beekon, lets users share short messages with people around them without having to exchange contact information.

When a user posts a message using Beekon, they’re sharing a message with anyone within their current location. This includes neighbours, friends, local businesses and anyone else nearby. Messages are restricted to the area in which they’re posted. Using geo-fencing, users are able to unlock messages around them by moving closer to a message.

“We wanted to make a messaging app that is fun, contextual and relevant to your current location” says founder, Chris Gregg. “Whether you’re at home or on the go, Beekon makes it possible to quickly see what’s happening around you wherever you are.”

App Features:

  • Exchange messages with people around you
  • Uncover events and happenings nearby
  • Discover and share local news as it happens
  • Unlock messages
  • Connect with people around you
  • Send direct messages

Pricing and Availability:

Beekon is available for free on Android, iPhone and Windows Phone.
