Bthere wants you to stay in touch with each other not only from behind a device screen but in real life, pushing the boundaries of what social media apps are meant to do. It’s the very first social media app to give rewards to users that spend time with each other. Imagine getting rewards for just chatting or meeting up with friends and family. Bthere also contains a number of features that assure some safety when you’re out clubbing or at events. Bthere location tracking is the first thing to help everyone earn points. If you’re after some help with a home task or just want some company on a park run, the group location sharing makes it easy to find friends to help you out and have each other back.
Bthere has what they call “circles”, this is the group of friends, family, colleagues or acquaintances. Circles can be temporary for a one-off task or permanent for closer friends and families. The app tracks the time you spend together and rewards you with coins. You can use the coins to get things from the in-app shop or get discounts from a growing brand of local retailers such as Bumble, FabFitFun, ASOS and more. The more time you spend with the people in your circle, the more coins you earn. The leaderboard shows the daily, weekly and all-time high score of circle and the individual with more coins.
Of course, being a social messaging app you still have the ability to chat with friends, send images and gifs. You can even locate your friends on a customized map within the app, so you can easily arrange meetups with the people close by.
One of the best features of the app is the “Come Get Me” button. This is a safety feature that allows you to instantly send a notification to everyone in a specified circle. So if you’re in trouble are in a situation you don’t want to be, then it’s a perfect feature to get help.
