Giving a Whrrl of a try: another location based app

Have you heard of Whrrl? It’s another location based iPhone social networking app. I installed it sometime ago but have only used it a few times. But aparently Whrrl is a big winner in some areas because if my memory serves me correctly, I think I read that Whrrl has a contract with a HBO tv series for online/ TV mashup. Also I think Whrrl was listed as a top 10 app on one of the major tech blogs as an app/site to keep an eye on….

What I like about Whrrl is the app is fast on finding my position but unless it’s a user error I can’t post any custom places like I can with Loopt or Brightkite, something I don’t like.

Also I think the only way to add friends is from the website something that loopt just 1 up everyone this week with it’s mix network.

Still I think Whrrl is a nice app, it does have a lot of pre-listed locations to say this is where you are but I don’t see a lot of people using the app at this time or it could be just my friends don’t use it.

Are you using Whrrl?

  1. is this like dodgeball for iphone? sounds really interesting.

    Also–really like your blog layout and really liked when you had a video post (you talked about not going to vegas blog expo)–it made me feel like i got to know you, even tho we’ve just exchanged a few tweets back and forth.

    keep up the good work
