You care about your friends and family.
At its core, Locol is a real time dashboard of your city, neighborhood, subculture, or groups (we call them blocs). You can locate friends and family to organize social events, share photos, video, and chat. Create your own private social network by sharing your content-rich maps with friends, family, or blocs.
And you also like to explore..
Locol offers real time maps that helps you discover interests. Blocs are customized maps that allow users to see the city through the eyes of others. Blocs gain popularity through valued content and events. Users can use the Spotlight feature to find popular blocs in the map area. Blocs might be family, close-knit friends, ski clubs, alumni, or a subculture unique to your town. You can zoom in to find what’s popular in a neighborhood or zoom out to discover a city’s identity.
What if an app invested in what our hearts really wanted?
Locol provides in-app rewards for face-to-face interaction, hosting events, or helping others in need. These rewards are a social currency for taking part in a platform for kindness. You can give your rewards to others or use them for community projects that Locol will fund. You can see your kindness spread with a pay it forward map. Enjoy the happiness from engaging with your community and seeing the combined giving that surrounds you.
Basically, Locol makes being social good
Locol has developed its beta for iOS 9 and is launching a Kickstarter on November 11, 2015. You can sign up for the beta, some in-app recognition, and support the self-admittedly idealistic company here
