WerYoo Is Like Instagram, But With Maps

wereyoo

Recently launched free app WerYoo takes on Instagram — combining a photo app with a social network — by allowing users to place their photos and hashtags on a map, which they can then share with friends.

WerYoo lets you show off your photos to people in your immediate proximity, and pings you whenever a new nearby photo is added — thereby letting you both keep up to date with friends and connect with new people.

That’s in addition to the expected effects and filters, along with a unique “hotspot” comments feature that lets you comment on any part of a photo.

WerYoo’s latest update also adds an additional option for inviting Facebook friends, along with improved camera editing controls and main camera view color scheme.
