At gaming and geek conventions such as Anime Expo, SDCC, and PAX you're surrounded by tons of cool interesting people who share your passions. But how do you go about meeting them? How do you make new friends?

Shout Around is THE app that helps brings the convention community together and build genuine friendships. Shout Around provides a simple way to connect nearby friends and followers with geolocation. You can send private messages, create public “Shouts” to tell everyone who’s following you what’s going on, arrange cosplay photoshoots with cosplayers, check-in at VIP locations to unlock badges, add photos and customize your profile with Skins, and add new friends using QR code without giving out your personal info.

We love going to conventions and making new friends, let's make it even more exciting!

Good concept, Has some bugs.

Really great concept and idea! Still some bugs that need fixed though such as the touch sensor in the app is not centered. Everything needs to be tapped slightly lower than where it is placed on the screen.

Developer Response ,

Hi Nathalie, that unusual error occurs when you are using another app that is taking a status bar height, such as a phone call or the GPS. We are looking into a permanent solution to resolve that issue, in the meantime, you should able to navigate the app easily once you close out the other apps that are using the top status bar, thanks!

Really an awesome CLOUT app

This app is super cool Bc you really get to show off your fandoms. Plenty of conventions are able to be scouted on this and I like the idea of possibly making friends through it while AT the convention. I often go to cons alone or with a small group so it’s fun to connect!!

Logging in

I personally think that adding maybe a "Login with Twitter" option would be very beneficial. 5 stars for such a great idea to bring people of similar interests together
