Girls Around Me is a geolocation-based maps app that shows users what girls are in their vicinity, what they look like, information about them and ways to get in touch with them.
It's like an online dating site but in real time -- but a lot more personal.
Once connected with Foursquare, the app designates the user's location and then creates a Google map of who is in their immediate surrounding area, in a ratio of guys to girls.
A list of women's faces is then generated and displayed in thumbnails on the screen that can then be linked to for more information on the person. Photos, social media profiles and contact information all appear at the touch of a button. Girls Around Me gives men on the prowl a leg up when they're trying to pick up, as they already know the interests of the woman they're approaching and how to strike up a conversation. It also pushes the boundaries of personal privacy and changes up the typical dating game -- and not necessarily in a good way.
