Facebook Places, meet InCrowd

Earlier this month, Facebook announced their much-anticipated Places feature, integrating social networking with geo-locations to create a more personal and unique social experience. Today, Booyah Inc. announced an application that allows you to tell your friends where you are and what you’re doing at that moment, all through Facebook’s Places feature. Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (though not universal), the free application allows you to send out your own location as well as “check in” to see who is near you. Booyah are also the developers of MyTown, which hosts some 3.2 million active users to date.

InCrowd is placed in the Entertainment section of the App Store because of its popularity contest feature and existence of customizable characters known as avatars. Booyah urges you to “strive for the highest popularity” by announcing your location and interacting with others around you, all through your own customizable character. For example, by posting about a venue nearby you’ll gain a number of points which can be used to upgrade and personalize your avatar.

“InCrowd gives players a completely new way to socialize real-time at the places they love,” said Keith Lee, CEO, Booyah. “We’re compressing the barriers between digital social networks and the real world in a way that lets people find their friends or make new ones in a completely unique manner.”

You can download the application for free by clicking on the link below. A Facebook account, also free, is of course necessary to reap the benefits of InCrowd.

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
MyTown is the new king of location based social apps. What this means is that you can build up a big city that nobody ultimately cares about, only to realize later on that you will never get those precious moments back. I write this as I am collecting my towns rent... my realization moment is sure to come soon.
