Hoping to take the social networking world by storm is new app Uberlife with the grand intention of taking out all the effort of arranging a meet up with friends.

The app hooks into either the user's Facebook or Twitter accounts and takes seconds to set up. Upon initial setup, it comes up with some suggestions of friends to invite and where to visit in the local area. Future "hangouts" can be just as easily created within a few taps of the screen, making it so simple to arrange somewhere to meet.

Further functionality comes in the form of being able to view map details for the area, being able to discuss any details about the visit via the app, and even add relevant images.

Essentially, it's like Facebook places but with extra ease and the ability to tap into Twitter friends. As it's free, it's an ideal companion for those who want to juggle plenty of meet ups with their friends.
