So Close started as a university senior project, it's an android mobile application that notifies you that one or more of your contacts became close to you! It also has more awesome features!
With So Close you will never miss seeing anyone, you'll always be notified, depending on your choice, when a contact becomes close to you. And you are able to see which contacts are close in case you and your contacts were neighbors, school friends, team workers etc...
***Potential problems So Close will solve for you:
Have you ever experienced being in the same place, at the same time without being able to see someone you know, because you simply didn't know that he is here?
Do you hate wasting time on calling a person to tell him “hey I’m so close, get ready”, and sometimes the problem is forgetting to call that person and in this case you have to wait even more.
What about being unable to guess that the person you want to surprise is getting close without managing with someone to track his movements and tell you that he is coming.
Think of this, you want to visit one of your neighbors, but the problem is that you don’t know which one of them is at home.
Get a notification when a contact become in a range of meters which you specify.
Turn Notifications on and off
Send your close contacts a request to see where they are at! If they approved you both enjoy an awesome experience tracking each other's location.
No privacy leaks!
Link a contact with a phone number from your phone book and be able to place a call or send an text message in future. Note that this may cost you money according to your plan.
If you go offline you'll no longer be notified if a contact of yours became so close, you will not be available for your contacts to see your location, and no one will get notified if you became so close to him. You just disappear.
Once you go back online you'll be able to see and be seen.
***SO CLOSE LIST
A list of all your online & so close contacts is available in the main screen. It displays the name, nickname/id, and the distance bar of your contact.
The nickname will make it easier for you to recognize your friends.
The distance bar will make you more aware of how close your contacts are and by that you can compare which one is closer to you.
You have the choice of turning the notifications ON/OFF
You can choose at what distance between you and your contacts you want to be notified, choices are 50 m, 100 m, 150 m, 200 m, 250 m, and 300 m.
You can choose the time interval you want the app to check for changes, for example if you choose 30 seconds, every 30 seconds the app will check your contacts locations and inform you if any one became so close. Choices are 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, and 5 minutes.
The time interval is intended to give you the choice of saving battery life and data usage.
You have the choice of setting the default map type you want to see when you share your location with your contacts.
You have the choice of having a line between you and your contact while sharing locations, which is intended mostly for making it easier to locate your contact in the satellite map type but it's usable on all maps types.
