Weave is a free iPhone social app to find and meet professionals around your location. The app uses your LinkedIn profile for finding professionals around you. This app is similar to popular iPhone app Tinder and applies the same principle for itself. Just like Tinder, this app displays random professionals who are around your location. Then you can either match them or ignore them. If any user who you have matched also matches your profile, then both of you can have in-app chat and also meet each other.
Apart from this, you can check the profile of other users even if both of you have not matched each other’s profile. The app lets you find professionals around you by specifying different matching criteria. Whenever any professional matches you, then app notifies by sending a notification on the lock screen.
Note: This app is not optimized for iPad so while using it on iPad, you will not be able to see the message while you are typing it. You can see it only after sending it.
