The Highlight application
|Platform||iOS and Android|
Highlight is a social networking application for iOS and Android. The application finds nearby users and shows things they have in common with a user. The application received a large update which introduced Android support on November 20, 2012.
People can register user profiles with the service by entering their information. They then leave the application running in the background, and it will notify them of people nearby.
Highlight has been criticized for its disclosing of private information to strangers. Highlight requires a connection to both users' Facebook accounts and their location. The difference between Highlight and other services like Foursquare is that it shares information continuously.
