If You Have an iPhone and Need a Friend, There’s an App for That

Amazon

I’ll be honest with you I haven’t ventured into the world of the Android or iPhone.  I’m still using a Blackberry 8330 and it’s pretty sad.  It doesn’t have any bells or whistles really.  I can get my email, I can text, I can surf the net on a tiny little screen.  OK so I’m jealous. 

I am jealous of my friends all running around with their cool iPhones and Android phones.  I’m jealous or their cool apps.  “Here’s my user name for Words with Friends,” or “have you gotten Angry Birds yet?”.  “Oh wait you have an old Blackberry.”  I swear one of these days I will have a cool phone, but the moment I get one of those cool new phones, my friends will be upgrading to the cooler new phones and I’ll be behind again.

But I digress, in the world of smart phones you will find some pretty interesting apps.

iPhone users, are you lonely, do you need a new friend, a friend with the same interests as you.  Well you won’t have to wait much longer, because coming soon to for your  iPhone is the new Buddy Finder.

An Apple patent application details a “Buddy Finder” system that would allow you to get suggestions of

like-minded Apple users nearby, and then create an unholy “ad hoc network” with one of them. This opt-in service would draw on a log of your past movements, media purchases, etc:

Common interests and experiences of two or more users located close to each other can be identified from… activities performed on the mobile device (e.g., songs downloaded), a trajectory of the mobile device (e.g., places traveled), or other public data available from the mobile device (e.g., pictures shared).

So if you have an iPhone and you find yourself thinking that your phone is watching you while you sleep…it probably is.
