Developer Defends Girls Around Me App
April 2, 2012 by staff
Developer Defends Girls Around Me App, The developer behind the creepy, stalker-like Girls Around Me app says it’s not stalker-like at all; but with Foursquare having yanked access to the app in recent days — essentially neutering it — the developer has pulled the app from Apple’s App Store.
“It is impossible to search for a particular person in this app, or track his/her location. The app just allows the user to browse the venues nearby, as if you passed by and looked in the window,” said the app’s developer, Russian-based i-Free Innovations, as part of a lengthy statement to The Wall Street Journal, defending Girls Around Me.
Such window shopping, without those being looked at knowing it, led to the app being downloaded more than 70,000 times since debuting in the App Store last December, i-Free Innovations said.
“Since the app’s launch we’ve seen numerous positive comments from users who claimed that the app helped them to discover ‘hot spots’ – venues that are popular among girls or boys.”
