As quoted from Wikipedia:

Brightkite is a location-based social networking website that is available on any mobile device. Users "check in" at places by using text messaging or one of the mobile applications and they can see who is nearby and who has been there before. The service was created in 2007 by Brady Becker, Martin May and Alan Seideman who previously founded the SMS notification service Loopnote. In April 2009 Brightkite was acquired by mobile social network Limbo.

Brightkite allows registered users to connect with their existing friends and also meet new people based on the places that they go. Once a user "checks in" at a place, they can post notes and photos to that location and other users can comment on these posts. Users control the privacy of their updates and can choose to share them with their Twitter and Facebook accounts, while also having the option to share their geotagged photo posts to Flickr.

Brightkite is available worldwide.

Brightkite currently has applications for iPhone, Android, Symbian, Blackberry and others.There is an open source third party app for BlackBerry called "myKite" and webOS called "Parafoil" .

Note: I edited the links so each one will take you to the appropriate store Smile.

and here’s how the Symbian version of the app looks like on my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Open-mouthed smile


Now to the video review Open-mouthed smile:

See you soon Smile
