Buddy Check – The social app to better manage conviviality moments among friends


The Absolut Company announced the launch of Buddy Check, a new app that helps to keep track of friends when going out. Through geolocation and a playful experience, the app aims at making conviviality moments safer throughout the night.

To avoid losing track of each other in overcrowded places, Buddy Check offers to bump gently people’s smartphones within the same party group. The geolocation functionality allows to find quickly the members of this group, and is completed with a message feature and advice on responsible consumption.

Features with Buddy Check

  • Geofence feature to keep the group together
  • Keep track of your friends using GPS
  • Timed buddy checks to find friends
  • Communicate with your friends using Buddy Message

The Buddy Check app allows a responsible and solidary management of conviviality moments among a group of friends.

Buddy Check can be downloaded free of charge in iTunes App Store since November, 2013. It will also be available for Android on Google Play in early 2014. Privacy ensured as all GPS-data is deleted when you log out or end game. No data uploaded or stored.
