With nowadays social networks where people leave most of their aspect for everyone with access to see it, where people use mobile devices in order to find people for a coffee, a night out and others (apps such as Tinder, Facebook).

Finding Friends target people who also like to meet people outside the safe zone, where through the check-in through the application, users will be able to find others that are also nearby alone or with friends.

The application at this point is not aimed to become a chat, as such already exists, but for travellers who want to meet people and make friends outside the social networks, even if they are having a coffee, going for a walk around the city, going to a night club.

Finding Friends will allow user to find users that are in a 1.5 km radius of the users check-in and will enable users to visualize other users nearby and their usernames where when interact they will be able to send a picture from their library.

Finding Friends aim iOS users at first as it has been written using Swift language on Xcode. User will need to have access to the internet, using 3g, 4g or wireless as app need to collect data regarding their location to be shown in a map.

The application has been tested on iPhone 4s and also on iPhone 6s.
