The Getmii app leverages the sharing economy and proximity-based social networking to enable neighbors to help each other out. Whether you need lecture notes, need ping pong balls for a rousing drinking game, an emergency phone charger or last minute ride, the smartphone application allows users to broadcast to the 1000 people closest to their location.

In addition to being able to simply broadcast your needs, the Getmii app has a chat feature so you can barter or arrange payment with someone willing to come to your aid.

Described as a "need feed," the mobile solution is not intended for casual romance, but for immediate assistance. Cofounder Max Meyer explains their service as a digital speakerphone announcing how you need help.
