Meet up.

Dodgeball is made for the weekends. Use it to broadcast your location to your friends by sending text messages to a central location. If you tell the service where you are, the service tells you where your friends are. Tell Dodgeball who your online crushes are and the service tells you when they are nearby (usually a ten-block radius). There’s even an “ex” service for turning on and off which friends are on your list for that night. Check it out at

Give a shout

  • Send a shout text where you are and your friends will know.
  • Put an exclamation mark at the beginning of a shout, and it texts to all your friends.

  • The crush service is discreet; it lets you know someone has a crush and they’re nearby. Wanna know?
