A remarkable new app was announced this week that lets users leave money for friends at specific physical locations.
A remarkable new app was announced at TechCrunch Disrupt this week that lets users leave money for friends at specific physical locations.
Gifi is a mashup of Foursquare and Venmo. It lets you leave money for people in specific locations, which they can unlock with a Foursquare check-in.
Imagine that you check into your favorite coffee shop on Foursquare and moments later you get a text message informing you that a friend has left you $3 at that location, along with a personal message that he wants you to have a latte on him. Or you can leave the gift for more than one friend and whoever checks in first gets to keep the money.
