Mobcast Brings Geo-Social Capabilities to Facebook

Mobcast.jpgAdd Mobcast to the list of iPhone apps with geo-social capabilities for Facebook, TechCrunch reports.

Mobcast allows users to sign in via their Facebook IDs, select friends to receive their “mobcasts” and allow those friends to see updates on a map, according to TechCrunch, but the app cannot run on background, meaning it must remain on in order to function.

Jeff Schnitzer, one of the developers behind Mobcast, told TechCrunch:

This isn’t some big VC-backed play hoping to take over the world. We’re two guys (Nikolai Sander is the other developer) who spent a month-and-a-half building what Facebook should have built a long time ago.
