V-Star Labs unveiled today Cityscape, a new way of exploring our neighborhood and changing the way we connect with our locals.
The app enables people to report, alert & raise local awareness by following and connecting with their local area and other locals.
With features to share pictures, check-ins, selfies and fun content with those around as well as share and consume local news and events from the local community, the app helps users engage with their locals.
The mission is to inform and delight users by helping them stay connected with their local area of choice and other locals to stay up-to date on current and important matters.
Updates can be shared by anyone using the app and the Cityscape app automatically shows users just the ones from their local area of choice.
Commenting on the same, Vishal Shah, Founder- V-Star Labs said, "Cityscape is a simple to use secure local social platform for people with a strong social attitude, to stay connected with their neighbourhood, however small or big. We are extremely excited and look forward to adding more updates to the app, which is available exclusively on the Android Play Store and believe it will be well-received by everyone."
Cityscape was designed keeping ease of use and security in mind. It is one of the easiest to use amongst existing local social networks. It does not require the users email, actual address, or Facebook / Twitter account access.
While a phone number is not required to use the app, it is necessary for verification to avoid spam and abuse. Users can choose to remain anonymous with Cityscape and it does not share personal data.
Cityscape also has additional features like local classifieds & discussion forums available to discuss matters that people care about, with other locals, easily and effortlessly.
While today, the app was launched on the Android platform, it will soon be followed by IOS and Windows in the future.
Currently users will be able to select one neighborhood, though in future versions, it will be expanded to 3 -for example around their home, work and another place of interest. Cityscape is available exclusively in India, with plans to be launched globally in the near future.
