Meetro for Mac OS X
Meetro today launched Meetro for Mac OS X, the world’s first location-aware social messenger, for the Apple's Mac OS X. Built on a custom location-aware client-server architecture, Meetro has combined the best features of social networks and messengers while stressing physical location--a combination commonly referred to as a ‘social messenger’. Meetro says it has created, from scratch, an entirely new software representing the new standard in online and offline social interaction. Designed to facilitate real-time meetings with people locally, Meetro bridges the gap between traditional messengers and the next-generation local meeting place. Every time a user logs into Meetro, it generates a new list of people based on your profile and physical presence. It features worldwide location support, fully integrated profiles into the messaging experience, a ‘face pane to viewing who’s online visually, and realtime updates now supporting Growl. Meetro is available for Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP.
