Social networking for the iPhone is finally picking up some heat. WhosHere from myRete is an ad supported social networking app available for free in the App Store with a growing following. WhosHere is like a mashup between Facebook, MySpace, and AIM, and its dead simplicity and ease of use has allowed WhosHere to grow quickly.
WhosHere is not too complicated, it finds people near you and shows you their photos. You can create yourself a profile and add your photo, your name, and more bio details like your gender, age, and relationship status. Then you can state who you want to meet by gender, age, and relationship status. You can browse people near your location, or new users to WhosHere. Once you find a friend you can do a few things: Send them a chat message, add them to your address book (yes, this means your actual iPhone Contacts and WhosHere imports the user photo as well), or block them if they give you the creeps. You can send pics to any user on WhosHere, and what’s cool is you can take a photo using your iPhone and send it all in one shot. There is a tab that keeps a list of all your chats with other users for your reference.
There a bunch of settings you can modify to fine tune how you see other users and how they see you. More social features are hopefully on the way, perhaps blogging and widgets? Watch out MySpace and Facebook.
