Ever been asked where you are and you just do not have a clue? Or perhaps you are new to a city and are finding it difficult to get your bearings and give others directions to your location?
Sam East, founder and CEO of Shake Locate created the app after experiencing just that – he was trying to give his father directions to his location after he had moved to a new city and it became quite a challenge. He says, “For those who aren’t familiar with their surroundings it can be difficult to describe how to get to them and the process to share a location can be a fairly long-winded one. I decided to simplify things by creating Shake Locate which works by using longitude and latitude to pinpoint your location.”
For those who aren’t technically savvy or simply want to save time finding and sharing their location, it has never been easier. With a mere shake of your phone the new Shake Locate app pinpoints your exact location with a shareable link and allows you to share it via SMS or your chosen social network. What’s more you can create lists of your favourite places, discover what’s near you and share locations with a group of default contacts as well as individuals without being connected to the Internet.
Welsh entrepreneur Sam continues,
“I thought, finding and sharing your location should not have to entail opening several apps or windows before copying and pasting links in a new message or post that you would have to create separately. I wanted to deliver a better experience with Shake Locate and make it as accessible as possible. As such it is available to use globally and in nine different languages including German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Chinese.”
Shake Locate is a free app that was launched at the end of last week and is available in the Apple app store and google play for android users. All you need to do is shake, locate, share and never get lost again. To find our more visit: www.shakelocate.com.
