    Highlight - People nearby's review

    Published: 2012-11-26, by Ana Gracia.

    Use the app, connect with your friends and see which ones are nearby

    • Useful, could be interesting
    • Good and usable design
    • You need to have all your friends using it, right now it's not that popular

    "Who will I bump into today?"

    Highlight is a social network that connects you with people around you that have interesting facts or have things in common in some way.

    How does it work? Highlight notifies you when there are friends -from Facebook- nearby in order to make your day more interesting, or even people you might know too by mutual connections. You can also browse your history to see who was near you during that day and send messages and post updates so people around you can see them.

    The good thing about Highlight is that it allows you to configure your privacy options in case you don't want everyone to know where you are. The design is elegant and minimal, the tutorial explains well how the application works and it's easy to start using it, just follow the instructions.

    Math Camp, Inc. is a nice tool for making your daily life more interesting knowing that you can bump into your friends anytime. But, at the same time, it needs more users so it can really be useful, otherwise, you will never know.

    Who’s nearby? (Now with more login options!)

    Highlight is a fun, simple way to learn more about the people around you. If someone standing near you also has Highlight, their profile will show up on your phone. You can see their name, photos of them, mutual friends, and anything else they have chosen to share. When you meet someone, Highlight helps you see what you have in common with them. And when you forget their name at a party a week later, Highlight can help you remember it.

    As you go about your day, Highlight runs quietly in the background, surfacing information about the people around you. If your friends are nearby, it will notify you. If someone interesting crosses your path, it will tell you more about them.
    Highlight gives you a sixth sense about the world around you, showing you hidden connections and making your day more fun.

    LOGIN OPTIONS: You can connect with your personal social networking profile via Facebook, or with your professional social networking profile via LinkedIn. We use these login systems to show you the friends and connections you share with the people around you. We are working to add more login options like Google+.

    CONTACTS: We ask to read your contacts so that we can show you which of your friends are already on Highlight - and also allow you to invite friends who aren't.
