This app is called anti-social radar. Even seems hard to admit it, we all have some fellows that we won’t like to meet while we’re out in town.
This niche is alive and kicking so don’t you dare to pretend you haven’t been in this situation too. A couple of years ago, maybe...
Let’s dig deeper into the problem and see what is all about and how it works. Maybe a friend would like to use it sometime...

Even though nowadays we are surrounded by social apps and networks, here we have an app that is declared the anti-social radar. Its actual name is Cloak it can help you deal with messy and unpleasant situations by alerting you when certain fellows are getting close to you.
We can notice here that we are talking about the geo-location system and data analysis.
The app identifies where people are including data on their social accounts regarding certain locations they are visiting, including Foursquare and even Instagram. So, based on this, photos of friends are displayed on a map relative to the user's location. Those guys that are undesirable can be marked by users and set as alerts.
“Things like Twitter and Facebook are packed elevators where we're all crammed in together… I think anti-social stuff is on the rise. The app might be used to avoid exes, co-workers, that guy who likes to stop and chat - anyone you'd rather not run into", says Buzzfeed guru, Chris Baker about the Cloak.
