MeetUp Social Android App

This paper aims to present a system that illustrates the social nature of a human being – the need to be always in touch with family and friends – taking into account facilities available on Android platform. The role of this application is to create a social network in which the users are being alerted when their friends are around. This gives them the possibility to set up a meeting or to avoid one. The users have the possibility to check in some locations and allow their friends to follow their activity. Taking into account the security of the users, we included in the facilities of the application an option which allows close friends or family to check the user’s location based on a keyword text message. For this purpose, available Android location and messages services are used for finding an approximate location of a mobile phone running this program and then sharing it through MeetYou or via SMS. Information is being displayed using default components provided by Android platform and also more complex elements including heterogeneous lists CWAC, Google Maps and augmented reality using Mixare Library.


In recent years, we can observe that people need to be in touch with their friends and family just by looking at the enthusiasm with which they use applications and social networking websites. This means that with the development of mobile devices also this branch has been expanded, the social programs being ported to the smartphones platform where they have been combined with other innovative technologies such as augmented reality.


 None of them managed to connect people anywhere and anytime as mobile phone does.

 No Tracking System.


MeetYou application connects its users by sharing a user’s position with his friends, colleagues or other family members. A user has the option to be notified when a contact is near him and helps the others to find out his location even when the application is not open by sending a message containing a shared secret string.


The novelty of our approach is related to the fact that a user can be alerted, accordingly to his group preferences, when his friends are in his vicinity. On one hand, it combines features found in other applications like “check in” from Foursquare or Google Latitude, request location via SMS from Tehula, and on the other hand, it adds new options like viewing all friends’ location using augmented reality and drawing the shortest road to the selected friend using Google Maps service.
