Introducing: Marco Polo for Android

Note: Marco Polo has been sold to Libera Inc. and I will no longer be developing the Marco Polo app.  I'm very excited to see what they will do with it! (2 May 2013.)

Original post (3 July 2011) follows:

Marco Polo is my new Android app that I've been working on in my free time since April.  It lets you 'find' your friends based on their geo-tagged social network posts.  Marco Polo then shows their location and distance from you on a compass.  The app is very simple right now, but I have plans to add game mechanics that will make it much more fun!  You can read more about Marco Polo here.
