Self-Taught Developer David Richard Harnesses the Power of Geofencing to Create a New Type of Local Network with His New Mobile App JaVu

ORMOND BEACH, Fla., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile app developer David Richard has recently launched the private beta for his upcoming application JaVu. Built around the concept of geofencing, this top-notch app is capable of functioning as a location aware social network. JaVu users can create a geofence around them, and their followers receive image or text notifications when they enter the geofence. JaVu is capable of finding out connections with a high degree of accuracy while still being battery-safe by using a combination of Wi-Fi positioning, cell tower triangulation, and GPS.

Though these are early days to make any prediction, JaVu does look like a unique application with endless possibilities for the future. This may include finding restaurant reviews, promotion of entertainment events, product listing for a business, and much more. David's plan for the future of JaVu includes augmented reality, location based games, event implementation, deep real estate implementation, and an incredible feature for restaurants.

David is a 22-year-old entrepreneur and application developer who began tinkering with the idea of JaVu and other programming projects approximately 18 months ago. "I have been building the idea in my head for two years, even before I started programming. When Apple released their Reminders app, I wondered how they accomplished reminding people based on their location. That's when I discovered geofencing. I thought it would be incredible for your phone to automatically alert you of location-based social media," David says.

The young developer has moved from fixing iPhones in a flea market to learning the Gamesland Engine, Lua language and the Unity Game Engine. He is currently learning and writing JaVu in the iOS native Objective C language. All of this has occurred over the past year and a half.  He has released several applications on the Apple App store, but JaVu is his biggest project to date.

Currently, JaVu is in private beta, and the creator is looking for more testers. Interested individuals may apply to see how the application works and to help refine the product. Check out http://JaVuApp.com to apply for beta testing or to get the latest news about the application. David is pushing for a mid-March launch.

About David Richard: David Richard is a young entrepreneur, and the creator of JaVu mobile application. Some of David's previously released games are already in the App store. However, JaVu is the first major application created by him.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...
