Roamz real-time social discovery app comes to Android

A brand new application has just launched for Android today called Roamz. Why check into Foursquare and many other apps to find friends or things to do when Roamz can do it all for you. This is similar to other social discovery apps only it requires no check-in's and operates in real time. They are calling it "social goggles for the real world" that will make you feel like a local no matter where you go.

Essentially Roamz aggregates real-time content off the social web such as Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter and even Instagram to bring you things you're interested in based on your location and preferences. Unlike foursquare it requires no check-in and has a bevy of preferences so you'll see what you want, when you want.

This app will curate things to do, food to eat and more based on your social networks and contacts. Basically shows you what's going on in town -- making you a local. Roamz explains it by saying, "It’s like having your best friend in your pocket, showing you things that you are actually interested in." Not only that but Roamz will learn as you use it, get smarter, and bring you better content in the future.

You can find things that are around you based on preferences, or set it to search by popularity and more. We've seen multiple social apps similar to this like Path or Cheers, but Roamz aims to beat out the rest and become more than just a niche app. Available starting today from the Google Play Store. Give it a try today and let us know what you think down in the comments.

    I’m not a big check-in kind of person, so I don’t know how much use I’ll get out of this, but it does have a pretty “instantly cool” feel just loading it up and looking around.

      And the force closing begins.
