Highlight: The future of location based sharing

Highlight is an up and coming app which helps you learn about the people around you just by simply passing them in real life. When you walk by a person that has something in common with you (a friend or interest), Highlight automatically pushes your information to them and if you find them interesting you can “highlight” them. Once a person is highlighted “that person is notified and added to a list on the highlighter’s profile. It’s like a bookmark for people”. This kind of social discovery app has become fairly popular recently with apps like Foursquare (Radar) , Banjo, and Sonar which notify you whenever your friends or interesting places are nearby.
