A team of Ukrainian developers launched an iOS-app Spottle (Android-version has been released earlier). The developers call it a blend of Foursquare and WhatsApp in one application. This is a geo-messenger with the help of which users can text chats of venues located in the vicinity. As of May 6, the app has been installed by over 7,000 users.

The app works as follows: it receives coordinates of the user and shows him/her all venues in the vicinity in the form of chats. Any chat can be texted, the message will be read by an operator from the start-up team. It can be a question, comment, feedback or a complaint. An operator will answer it. It is planned, that in the future the messages will be answered by the administration of the venue: the function is already being tested by owners of cafes and restaurants in Dnipropetrovsk. Currently, 12 venues are linked to the application.

The user will also have access to photos, menus, comments and events of the venue.
