Humans are naturally social animals and getting together with friends is just one of the ways of having a good time. Unfortunately, as anyone who’s associated with a large group of people can tell you, coordinating with several individuals can be stressful.

Though meetups may spell good times, it can be such a hassle when questions fly left and right, basically asking the same things people have already asked. But, thanks to FlockThere, Inc., there’s an app that will helpΒ  you eliminate meetup problems by giving you your contacts’ real-time locations, so you’ll no longer have to worry where the last member of your team is or how to get there. Meet FlockThere, an app that allows you to easily organize meetups by sending out Flock invitations to your contacts.

Once your contacts accept the invitation, you’ll be able to track their location on a live map and read their messages on the same screen. If you want to be updated on your invited contacts’ locations, simply tap Locate All and you’ll find their locations on the map. From there, FlockThere allows you to send all your contacts a message through a single touch, and if you and your contacts are wired to the Net, you can even keep in touch with your contacts through chat messaging.

FlockThere was originally released on the iTunes App Store but has now reached the Google Play Store, granting Android users the ability to easily organize their own group get-togethers.

To organize a meetup, you’ll need a FlockThere ID. You won’t have to worry about opening a separate webpage to sign up because FlockThere allows you to make an account right from within the app. The best part is that the service is free. Once you’ve got a FlockThere ID, the app will walk you through its various functions.

You can even remove and add new guests after the Flock has been created. If your contact has FlockThere on his/her Android device, they can reply directly to you from within the app.

Send a Flock invitation to your contacts by filling in all the important details such as the name of the meetup, when it’ll take place, when it’ll end, and the event’s location.

FlockThere even gives you privacy control so that the location of your meetup is only shared for the duration of the event. Though FlockThere gives you the power to track your contacts’ location, it also gives you the option to conceal your own location.

Have you forgotten to invite someone? Don’t worry, FlockThere allows you to add more people to your Flock even after the Flock’s already been created. If you’ve also made the mistake of inviting a certain someone, you can remove that invitee. FlockThere also keeps tabs on your current and upcoming Flocks, which you can find conveniently on the app’s homescreen. You’ll never forget a get-together again.

FlockThere is a must have app for those of you who’re frequently tasked with your group’s meetup details. To get started organizing your own group meet ups today, get FlockThere for free from the Google Play Store.
