Pelago gives it a Whrrl


Mobile device social networking and discovery provider Pelago’s Whrrl service has extended the number of devices its service works with.

Whrrl focuses on helping users find and share local knowledge with others, combining mapping and blogging with social discovery that, apparently, “changes the way people use virtual friend networks to shape their experiences in the physical world.”

The US-only service can plot friends’ real-time locations on the Whrrl map, which itself now allows users to filter in order to see only those people, places and events that matter to them. 

The service is now compatible with BlackBerry World 8830, multiple Motorola RAZR models including the V3M, v3xx, V9, v9M, and the Samsung M610, BlackBerry Pearl and Curve, the Nokia N95, and soon the Apple iPhone.
