What is the Banjo App?
Banjo is not new but more than likely new to you. It is a social discovery app that uses GPS data along with social network info to find nearby contacts/friends. You might ask why would I want to use this?
How Does the Banjo App Work?
Banjo populates info from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, FourSquare, Google+, and LinkedIn and keep you updated with your contacts/friends. It also provides a map view to locate any of your connections near and far, all in real-time. Banjo even notifies you of any nearby friends. The app seeks to replace your need to use the fore mentioned apps separately. Banjo is now 4 million users strong!
“Banjo is the fun way to explore what’s happening anywhere in the world right now.”
In time for the many live events, and friend meet-ups at SXSW, Banjo announced version 3.3 of their app. With this update, event location and content are synced to provide a more “real time” feed. Just because you’re not close to an event, it doesn’t mean that your feed won’t show it. It shows real-time information from all the social networks at the same time.
The app is free and is available for both Android
