The Situationist app is a new iPhone app designed to bring strangers together through bizarre activities. The Situationist app is a location-based service that locates users in the same area and assigns them random challenges.

Challenges range from telling someone they are beautiful to giving them a hug for five seconds. Users can upload a photo of themselves along with new "situations" to be completed. Unfortunately, no rewards are offered for completing the challenges, something which may discourage people from signing up. Fortunately, the app is moderated, which means that pictures of private parts and sexually explicit challenges should be filtered out. If you are feeling adventurous, then head on over to the Apple app store and download the Situationist app today. Stats for Location-Based Improv Apps Trending: Older & Chilly
