Zenly proves that location sharing isn’t dead

Now that you are giving up on check-ins and sharing your location with your friends, a French startup is coming up with better technology and new use cases to make location cool again. Zenly has been quietly working on location for years, and teenagers are now getting addicted to this app. SoLoMo is back.

Zenly couldn’t be more straightforward. When you open the app, you see a giant map with your location and your friends’ locations. You can tap on a friend’s picture and see exactly where they are. Or you can just aimlessly swap through your friends and jump around the map. This is Zenly’s core feature.
