This New iOS App Helps You Avoid People You Don’t Want to See

Want to avoid your ex, co-workers, that guy who loves to stop and chit-chat, or just anyone you would rather not run in to?

Well, there’s now an app for that.

The new iOS app, Cloak, which is branding itself as the “anti-social network” works by tracking the location data of people you’re trying to avoid and letting you know where they are.

The free app uses location data from social networks like Instagram and Foursquare to help you avoid those awkward run-ins you’d rather not have.

Photo thumbnails, names and locations of the contacts you are trying to avoid show on a map, or in a list, so you can see that individual’s exact whereabouts — and promptly turn and go the opposite direction.

The app was created by Brian Moore and ex-Buzzfeed man Chris Baker, who told the Washington Post, “I think we’ve seen the crest of the big social network…I think anti-social stuff is now on the rise.”
