Users Purchase And Leave Gift Cards For Friend’s Next Check-In
Location-sharing app lets users buy and share gift cards at specific locations and notify friends via Facebook.
iPhone app Clingle has launched a feature that allows users to share location-based gifts with friends and family. Clingle, launched in October of this year, enabled users to check-in from locations and leave “clings” there, which were snippets of text, photos or audio that Clingle users in the vicinity later could then see. Building on its existing features and a comprehensive database of locations, Clingle has now added the ability to send location-based gift cards. Users can leave gift cards to popular stores such as Starbucks or American Eagle for their Clingle or Facebook friends at that location, allowing them to unlock it when they get there. The company is currently promoting the app by offering free gift cards to its users as rewards for various achievements.
