While in California for the summer I met two yobongo friends offline, Emmanuel @jewgonewild and Ben @benbinary who were just getting started working on a new iPhone app to make it easy to invite your friends when going out. The app was called Whim @getwhim on twitter. Yesterday Whim launched in Apple’s App store [iTunes Link] . It’s great to see the progress that Emmanuel and Ben have made since the summer.
At it’s core whim allows you to do the following:
- Quickly share plans with friends
- See what friends are up to
- Find places to go, together
- Stay connected with real-time chat
Take a look a whim via the screenshots below.
Whim joins the growing trend of new apps to invite your friends to locations vs letting your firends know where you’re at after you have checked into a location. I all it “friends availability around location discovery”.

Congrats Emmanuel and Ben!
Have you invited your friends on a Whim yet?
