CALIFORNIA, San Francisco, July 11, 2011– 5 Miles, a geo-location collaboration app for Android smartphones was launched last July 5, 2011 on the Android Market.
The 5 Miles app allows the user or ‘FiveMaster’ to turn their Android smartphone or tablet into a broadcaster; sending and receiving ‘FiveCasts’ or messages to and from all “5 Miles” devices within a 5-miles radius.
Since all FiveCasts are renewed within 24 hours, the content is always fresh. Allowing the user to receive all of the updates broadcasted that day. In addition, the user is able to broadcast any message to 5 Miles users; anything from invitations to garage sales, block parties, notices for lost pets and more in and around the area.
The ‘FiveMaster’ or the user has the option of selecting the “Follow Me” feature when creating the ‘FiveCast’. This means that as the user and device changes location, the message created by the user is broadcasted to each new location he or she visits, within a 5-miles radius. The ‘FiveCast’ can re-broadcast itself in as many times within the day ensuring that all 5 Miles users around the area are able to receive the broadcast.
The 5 Miles system utilizes Global Positioning System and Assisted-GPS technologies to properly assign geo-location IDs to each message making sure that the message location is accurate all the times.
What differentiates 5 Miles from other social media apps is that it takes the user beyond micro-blogging and encourages within its community physical interaction, shared collaboration and communication.
According to Jorge Canal, Techno Global Inc. founder, “5 Miles is an innovative geo-collaboration social app that departs from mere “Friending” or “Following” or keeping up your profile, and goes right into community communication and true collaboration. People already use traditional tools to broadcast their community messages, but unless you physically run into them (E.g. signs, boards) you will miss them. With “5 Miles” your mobile device captures them all and display them in a map for you”
Imagine driving to your friend’s neighborhood and you have 5 Miles installed on your phone. From the moment you enter the area, you’ll start to receive all the FiveCasts or community messages broadcasted that day by every mobile device running the 5 Miles app on a 5-mile radius. You’ll be able to read these messages, and by selecting a message, you’ll be able to open a map and see the message location.
“You can think of 5 Miles as friendly road signs telling you where all cool places and events are happening within the area. 5 Miles main purpose is to connect you to your community, to give you the chance of communicating with other users that like you, are already running 5 Miles and discovering little by little all the advantages of geo-location technology! The best part about 5 Miles is its absolutely free on Android Market!”
