Kietsy is a location based communication app designed to
enhance the way we communicate with the people around us.
You can write posts and reach other users within your surroundings
in real-time. Unlike with other apps, you don't have to follow or befriend other users.
You can receive other users' contents by merely being around them.
Kietsy also aggregates public content from other platforms such as Twitter, Instagram,
and Wikipedia (more sources to come), which will show up in your feed if it is related to your location.
Why is kietsy important?
We invented kietsy simply because we realized that urban communication is still a hassle when it comes to
reaching people in our proximity. Posting notes on walls and street lights whenever we are looking for our
lost cats seems to be defying the possibilities of current technology.
We crawl the Internet to explore and comb magazines to find out what is happening next door, only to realize
all to often that the information is already outdated or irrelevant to our needs.
We really want to fix this. With a tool that will help people to talk more easily about the things they care
about with the people around them. And by creating opportunities to engage in.
