Dopplr. Where next?

i’ve taken the plunge and signed-up to Dopplr.

Matt Jones from Dopplr came in to do a lunchtime session at glue and having seen some of the cool stuff they’re doing with data it was only a matter of time.

Dopplr lets you share your future travel plans privately with friends and colleagues. The service then highlights coincidence, for example, telling you that three people you know will be in Paris when you will be there too. You can use Dopplr on your computer or mobile, and it links with online calendars and social networks.

The UI and design of the site is simple yet fantastic, the use of advanced coding tricks is clever but never excessive, and it’s another great example of a “connected” app, talking to Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo!, LinkedIn, Twitter, Flickr, Facebook and Fire Eagle.

You can SMS, Twitter and email your tips into Dopplr and there are loads of nice touches which build over time, such as Personal Velocity.
