The high price of fuel means that car pooling and ride sharing are becoming a necessity for an ever increasing number of people.

Carticipate now offers the first location-based mobile social network application for ride sharing and car pooling on a mobile platform.

It is free to download from Apple’s App Store on iTunes, and it allows users to indicate where they are going and when, broadcast the information, and allow others heading in the same direction (with iPhones) to find each other.

At this stage Carticipate is limited by the small number of people who have joined as it was launched just a few weeks ago. However, if a mass of people opt to join the network, Carticipate is likely to become the "Craigslist of carpooling."
