What's Here

A mobile app for helping people find interesting information and people in their current location.

What it does

What’s Here is a mobile app that helps consumers discover people, places and conversation going on around them.

To help manage the overwhelming amount of only occasionally relevant information about any location available through multiple sources online, What’s Here aggregates and presents only the most relevant information. Based on both their location and personal preferences, the app provides people with options to explore places, people and tweets around them.
