The mobile, location-based, social network / “friend-finder app” for Windows Phone 7, Who’s Near Me, was updated today to version 1.11. This new version includes a slew of the most user requested features. The most noteworthy of the additions are:
- Local News Feed – Similar to your Facebook news feed, except it contains posts from strangers near you. Anyone can comment on anyone’s posts. You can follow posts and be notified when they are commented on.
- Re-organized People Screen – The People Screen has been re-organized to make it easier for you to find people nearby. A new “Online” view shows only users that have the application open at that moment.
- Is Typing Notifications – Taking a page from the Kik application, WNM now shows when the other user is typing a message.
- Many other improvements and minor new features
The release was done to coincide with the social network’s achieving 325,000 users – which they did earlier this morning. The website for Who’s Near Me was also updated today and now includes full access to the local news feed, and all the app’s other features from any web browser.
