I met Echoer co-founder and CEO Daniel Cowen back in April, when the company launched its iPhone App. At that time, he showed me a detailed demo of the application on his iPhone and I liked it very much, primarily because it is highly visual and it integrates what people think about a place, a feature that is not available in Foursquare.
Echoer allows people to see the most relevant thoughts, events and discoveries around them, by visually showing the most relevant content related to a place using larger “floating bubbles” 9see screen shots and video). The intuitive interface makes it easier to instantly discover popular recommendations and opinions about local restaurants, bars, gigs and events.
Today, Echoer released its Android version. You can check the screen shots in the image above. To learn more about Echoer and its visual interface, check the video demo of the iPhone application below. You can also try either the new Android app or the iOS app, available from http://echoer.com.
Echoer also launched its Content Partner Program, with the first media, event and blogger partners including over 500 bloggers worldwide, local events and publications. Events such as The Montreal Jazz Festival, the world’s largest jazz festival, are part of the program.
