NEW YORK, March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BYBER, one of the newest social networking apps available, looks to bring exciting changes to what has become a somewhat stagnant arena. Founder Christopher Keir wants to put the social back into social networking, while also reconnecting people to their neighborhoods through an innovative "discovery" feature. The app has been available on the App Store for some time, and an Android version has just recently been released.
"I truly believe that when you create something new, exciting and worthwhile you have the building blocks for success in place," says Keir. "BYBER has these fundamentals. With persistence and dedication, we can only continue to grow."
Keir brings more than 10 years of experience in luxury hotel management to BYBER – his first fully developed mobile app. He believes his knowledge and understanding of what makes people happy has been a huge bonus in the creation of the BYBER app.
BYBER combines stylish design and effortless usability, which has resulted in positive user feedback and rapid adoption. New users can quickly create a profile and enter a brief description of themselves. The app's main page offers instant access to six core features – "My Profile," "Flirt," "Map," "Discover," "BYBER events" and "Share." Google Maps integration helps members navigate their surroundings, and BYBER even allows for sharing on major platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
Versatility is one of the major advantages of BYBER. Members can use the app's "flirt" functionality as a dating tool ― showing their interest in other members at a bar, restaurant or anywhere in the neighborhood. Alternatively, the app enables members to easily discover new, local hotspots and special events. Finally, BYBER lets members create events of their own, like birthday parties or casual get-togethers, and invite friends and neighbors to come and mingle.
A plethora of reviews from mobile app and technology publications have given Keir high praise for what he has accomplished with BYBER. According to http://intellectuapp.com/ the app is "One of the best social networking apps on the Apple Store at the moment." Other reviewers have remarked upon BYBER's tremendous versatility and friendliness.
The team behind BYBER will be attending the Collision Conference in New Orleans, which is scheduled for April 26 to 28. The company was chosen to exhibit as an Alpha, a designation given to a select group of early-stage startups from across the globe. Keir and his team anticipate making important new connections as part of this three-day premier event.
While the launch of BYBER for Android is certainly big news, Keir expects to make several more big announcements before the end of 2016. Significant updates for both platforms are in the pipeline, including Uber API integration, POP/Feed picture functionality, a group safety feature and a version for the Apple Watch. In the meantime, BYBER users can keep tabs on company events by following social media feeds on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
BYBER is a brand new app designed to help you meet new people, connect with friends and explore what your neighborhood has to offer. The app was created to bring a whole new level of fun, excitement and adventure back into the social networking world, and just as importantly, we made it extremely easy and simple. BYBER is the only app you will need to connect with old friends and make new ones while enlarging and enhancing your social life every day.
