Clingle Lets You Leave Private Text, Audio and Photo Messages for Friends at Check-in Locations

The world, it seems, can’t get enough social check-in service variants based on such services that launch on a regular basis. The latest calls itself Clingle by MyCityWay. Its “Clings” are bits of media (text, audio, photos) that users can leave for friends (other Clingle users) that are unlocked when these friends check-in to the location. It is a bit like a private geo-cache. Information can also be broadcast to friends in real-time. And, of course, like other social-geolocation services, deals can be searched for and badges can be earned.

However, if you are in the U.S., the only place Clingle is available is New York City. Outside of the U.S., the service also works in India and Singapore. Clingle states that support for additional cities in the U.S., UK and other countries is coming soon. The only phone supported right now is the iPhone. However, as you can see in the screenshot to the left, support for Android and BlackBerry is planned. You can find the free Clingle iPhone app at:

Clingle (iTunes App Store)

More information about the service is available on the service’s website.
