At this point we all know how most social networks work. You join, you follow people and people follow you. Also with apps like Foursquare you can see what businesses and events are going on around you. However, what most of the big names in social networking lack is that local community feel. In other words when you walk into your local small store there may be a bulletin board with flyers about stuff for sale, music lessons, lawn care, etc. Proxxi brings that “what’s going on around me” feel to your iPhone and Android device. Instead of signing up and friending/following people, you just sign in and immediately see who’s offering what around you. About to go to your favorite restaurant? What if someone was already there and commented on the wait time? What if your neighbor two blocks over just had a power wash done and was so happy that they wanted to let everyone else know about the service? Proxxi uses your current location and displays messages by others in your area. It lists the messages by distance, so you always see what’s being offered or information where you are at any given time. This App just launched and so there aren’t a ton of users yet. However, as more users sign on and start posting stuff the better it will get.
It’s free and definitely worth a download. The more people on board, the better it will be.
