“IN RANGE CONTACTS” is FREE to download on the Apple App Store (www inrangecontacts.com). Android version will be released in July 2017.
Ever attended a trade show or conference, been in an airport, at a stadium or major sporting event, or visiting a city and wondered if someone you know (and might like to see) is nearby?
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT from other apps like FB’s Nearby Friends, Find Friends, etc.? In Range Contacts (IRC) keeps your location PRIVATE! NO sharing of precise locations of either person… NO MAPS w/ pins…NO real-time location tracking. Seriously, who wants their movements tracked??
EASY TO USE tool for people ON THE MOVE who want DISCRETION and PRIVACY while seizing opportunities to strengthen their personal network relationships. You receive private proximity alerts when your contacts are within the range(s) you specify, and they allow you to be notified. Any action from there is your decision.
OTHER ADVANTAGES of IRC: 1) uniquely designed and WON’T DRAIN YOUR BATTERY, 2) lets you customize distance settings for alerts, 3) you can turn the “send” & the “receive” notifications on or off either globally or with a specific contact, and 4) one tap LOCATION ON/OFF switch.
3 Easy Steps: DOWNLOAD & REGISTER – INVITE – CUSTOMIZE CONTACT RANGES
Additional Info about In Range Contacts (IRC):
- In order to function the app imports limited contact info from your phone when it opens.
- Check a circle & tap “Invite” for a contact you want to connect with. A pre-scripted text message (also customizable) will open to send. Once your invite is accepted, use the distance slide bars & directional permissions to customize notification rules with that contact.
- The app default distance w/ contacts is 30-45 miles for receiving alerts. You can customize ranges btwn 0 and 100 miles (160 kms). You can use a global setting or customize for each person.
- There is a $2.99 per year in-app purchase to enable the functionality of setting distances below 30 miles (50 kms).
Set lower & tighter distances for alerts, espec when you’re in places like stadiums, airports, trade shows or conferences, or in a different city.
PLEASE return to the App Store, locate the app, and tap on “Review” to rate it.
