Don't like to be around people? Don't like the friends you have? Here's an app that claims to be the social network for the anti-social. Cloak uses location data to make it easier for you to avoid your connections.
It will pull in location information fro your social networks to show where your friends are so you can avoid accidentally bumping into them.
Connect Cloak to Foursquare and Instagram and the app brings up a map displaying your location and location of your friends. Select "flag" and the app will alert you when a selected person gets within a certain radius of you.
The app will only pull in location data from Foursquare and Instagram for now, so if you have friends you want to avoid in an area, best hope they are on those platforms.
The developers say they are working on connecting the app to more services in the future, though Twitter will likely not be among them.
"The location data just isn't there," the company explains in their iTunes description. "Most users have it turned off and even when it's on, it's quite vague."
