About.me has been creating significant buzz as a popular web service for creating personality profiles. You can create a free, one-page website with About.me to share your bio, social network activity, work links, photos and more.

Today, the folks at About.me are announcing their official iPhone app for free in the App Store.

About.me is a free service that lets you create a beautiful one-page website that’s all about you and your interests. Upload a photo, write a short bio and add your favorite social networks to show the world the big picture of you.

Get the complete about.me experience on your iPhone, with exclusive mobile features. With the Check Out feature, discover other about.me users nearby. Browse the Featured directory or stumble through Random pages. Add friends and new acquaintances to your Favorites. Your online identity goes wherever you go with the free about.me mobile app.

Features include:

  • Create your own about.me page
  • Choose an exclusive mobile background
  • Browse the Featured directory of pages
  • Swipe through Random pages
  • Check Out about.me users nearby
  • Share pages you discover to Twitter and Facebook or via email
  • Search for and add pages to your Favorites
  • View and update your own page
  • View the app in both portrait and landscape mode

“We are bringing the pieces of the browser experience that we have seen our users embrace into something that’s quick and portable — no matter where they are,” explained About.me’s Ryan Freitas to The New York Times.

There’s a location aspect of the new iPhone app that allows About.me users to see who is nearby. Unlike apps like Girls Around Me, you will have to opt into sharing your location with other About.me iPhone app users.

About.me for iPhone is available now in the App Store.

    Excellent a one stop source of information for the web savvy identity thieves.

    I’m thinking that anyone who actually *is* anyone, doesn’t need an “about.me” web page.
