Okay, we think we understand what Warnygo is and coming for Windows Phone 7 soon, and we'll try to explain it.
Basically it's a way to send out "alerts" based on certain categories and using geolcation. Some of those categories are:
- Weather alerts
So lets say you're in midtown Manhattan and you notice a building is on fire or something really important happening, you can send a "warny" out and people using the same network and in the area will get the notification/alert on their device. You can also subscribe to your favorite "zones" or areas of interest, for example if you want to follow any "warnies" in your hometown while you are away.
It's like a localized Twitter feed which you don't have to subscribe to or follow. We can totally see this taking "social networking" to another level (and even have socio-political implications). The big question though is will it catch on? (Anyone who has tried Google's lame 'Open Spot' will know how lonely this can be) Too early to tell, but it's an interesting idea and coming to WP7 soon.
See the video of the app in action after the jump.
