Social planning application Klamr has received a large update on iOS and Android, bringing new and improved features to the service in Version 2.0. The app allows users to communicate with friends both within and outside of the app, planning events and coordinating schedules without the need to bounce between multiple applications to find all of the info they might need.
The Klamr app aggregates ratings and reviews from multiple outlets, including Yelp, Foursquare and Facebook, while also allowing users to see suggestions of popular venues via a “specially curated location database.”
In theory, Klamr users could use this database and information to plan meetings or get-togethers with friends or colleagues, without being required to go to each individual app separately, and then take the time to call, text, email or Facebook message (as examples), the other people that are involved.
Klamr offers in-app messaging between users, and SMS messaging notifications to non-Klamr users. Messages, photos and plans between users are shared privately.
“Klamr reduces the effort of organizing get-togethers with my friends down to a few taps. Before Klamr, we’d text, email, Facebook message and go back-and-forth until we all reached agreement on when; then we’d have to figure out where. Now, there’s no hassle involved whatsoever,” said Rei Biermann, Klamr’s Head of Marketing, via a company release.
This Version 2.0 update also includes location tracking for sharing your current location and an “Idea Wizard” for planning events. The app is now available to download for free on iOS and Google Play. You can track its growth on AppData, our tracking service for social and mobile apps and developers.
