about.me now has an app for the iPhone. Built in collaboration with the AOL Mobile team, the app helps ensure your online identity goes wherever you go by delivering the about.me experience as well as access to exclusive mobile features that take advantage of location awareness. The new "Check Out" option lets you view pages of nearby users who are also using the feature, making it easier to connect meaningfully with new acquaintances offline.
More key features of the app include the ability to:
- Create your own about.me page
- Browse "Featured" and random pages and then email the user or share their page
- Search and add pages to your "Favorites" list
- View and update your own page
These join existing Web features that let you:
- Link to disparate social media pages (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, etc.)
- Add discovery tags to help find like-minded people
