Steven: Emoji Based Location Sharing

Steven is an iPhone app which shares your location with friends. Except that, rather than an exact location, it tells them where you are using emoji.

Steven works by updating your current status as an emoji icon, using auto location technology. The automatic nature of Steven makes it a great way to see what your friends are up to - without having to share exact location.

We think of Steven as a status dashboard that is always up to date. At a glance, you can see what and where your closest friends, family, colleagues are doing throughout the day, in non-invasive, fun emoticons.
