Technology is evolving super fast, sometimes it’s even scary how fast, right? We use technology basically to make our lives easier. It’s amazing how almost all our daily life is resolved by it but we still keep on calling and texting when we need to find somebody…which is more or less a daily task. We noticed there was no real solution in location app market, it was huge but orphan – so we decided to develop one and and make it a damn good, too.
So this is why Wave was created. Today, with 7 million downloads, it keeps on making it easy and fun to find your friends by sharing your live location on a map only with who you choose, when you choose. We have already facilitated 60 millions of meetings and there have been more than 260 millions of Wave sessions around the world. It’s 2017. If we are constantly moving, why should meeting up be so complicated?
Here’s why Wave rocks so hard:
You choose when. You choose with who
We believe in privacy. We believe you don’t want to be located by everybody, just by the people you choose, when you choose. This is why Wave works by request. This is why Wave cannot be misused.
There was no technology good enough available, so we built one from a scratch. We are very proud about our “housemade” cutting-edge technology that delivers dynamic, real-time and private maps like no other solution in the market.
We don’t mess with privacy but we sure don’t mess with security either. Our technology is encrypted using SSL and securely distributed using Amazon’s Cloudfront Edge Network on the first place. The location is sent using a token system that ensures that only the user that you are sending the location to can access the data and decrypt it. This security is used by US government to ensure safe transactions.
Design inspired by YOU
We are passionate about clean, cool and simple design! Registering in Wave takes about 10 seconds and the whole Wave experience is designed to be intuitive and fast. We don’t want you to stare at your mobile phone, we want you to share your location with your friends and have a blast in real life!
Go get social
We created not only a full chat but also Group Waves up to 10 people, so you can organize meetups to have a coffee, go skiing or go partying and share your location with the rest of the group, so you know who is slow, who is fast and chat with them in real time 😉 More social features are coming with the new version. Stay tuned!
