Meetro has announced the new ?Ultimate Breaking the Ice? instant messenger program called Meetro. Being created by Paul Bragiel (CEO of Paragon 5) and Wendell Davis III (ex-producer of Cave Barn Studios), Meetro looks to be a smash. The uniqueness of Meetro is the ability to show the proximity in miles how far away each user is from you. ?Meetro is the new dynamic way to meet people local to you.? Wendell Davis III exclaims, “Meetro makes finding people within walking distance a breeze — perhaps even a summer breeze.” It will allow users to have their picture and taglines, as well as have AOL AIM, and ICQ support (with plans of MSN, Yahoo and Jabber soon.)

“We’ve entered an early stage of development for handheld console support, which includes both Sony PSP and Nintendo DS.” Bragiel says, ?We see the DS and PSP as platforms that were designed to be used for applications besides games. We want to bring social software to these machines.? Unfortunately, we won?t see any of this software in action until Summer, 2006. Features given so far include:

– Instant Messenger program telling how far users are away from each other in miles.
– Includes taglines, user pictures and an extensive customizable user profile.
– The program has AIM, ICQ support. Yahoo support will come out later this month and MSN will be around the corner. Jabber support coming later.
