Thanks to the internet, you can access Reddit pages and various forums for drones and where you can find fellow drone enthusiasts. However drone maker DJI has decided to try and make it easier by creating a social network designed for drone enthusiasts where your fellow drone hobbyists will be able to look for other like-minded individuals nearby and connect with them.
Dubbed “DJI+ Discover”, this is an app designed for both iOS and Android. According to DJI’s description, “The mobile app connects people socially and professionally by enabling drone-pilots and drone enthusiasts to start conversations and meet up while also functioning as a professional marketplace for aerial service providers and potential clients.”
The app will be broken down in four different sections: Nearby Search which shows social and professional users nearby; Experience which helps to guide users to nearby stores or official events; Store which will take users to DJI’s online store; and Forum where DJI’s official forums are basically integrated into the app itself.
According to Paul Guo, Director of E-Commerce at DJI, “Drone pilots like to get together to fly, learn from each other and share experiences with like-minded people. In the same way, people want an easy way to find trustworthy professional aerial service providers nearby. DJI+ Discover lets people in the same area connect socially and professionally in a way that will bind the drone community even tighter together.”
Users interested in checking out the app can hit up DJI’s website for the download.
