The CarZar Launches at Paris Motor Show: World's First Location-Based Social Automotive App

The CarZar makes Location-based Car-Spotting Social, Useful, and Global, whether You're a Car Enthusiast, Car Buyer or Just Car Curious!
 
Paris, France, September 30, 2010 -- The CarZar (www.TheCarZar.com), the world's first location-based social automotive app, was unveiled today at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The CarZar is dedicated to making it easy for consumers to share their passion for cars through a location-based car-spotting app that is fun and easy to use, as well as social, useful and global. The CarZar is available for the iPhone in the iTunes store at:http://budurl.com/carzar.
 
Consumers can simply download the CarZar app onto their iPhone, snap a vehicle image, and CarZar tags the location, enabling users to share the image and their status, as well as vehicle information and comments, with friends across the social community -- all while earning points to become the CarZar of their favorite brand or type of vehicle.  
 
"There are nearly a quarter of a billion vehicles on the road in the US alone, and nearly that many drivers, most of whom either have a dream car in mind or are already passionate about their current vehicle…or both," said Jared Hamilton, The CarZar co-creator.  "The CarZar's location-based technology enables this vast population – and many more across the globe - to share their vehicle aspirations, passions and practical information across the social networking community."
 
Leveraging the largest social networks (such as Facebook and Twitter) and location-based services (such as Foursquare and Gowalla), The CarZar enables millions of users to spot and share millions of vehicle images, and their locations, in real time, with millions more - while also providing the best of location-based social community interaction, including comments, reviews, user profiles, most popular vehicle lists and badges.
 
"The CarZar's mission is to bring the car enthusiast out in everyone - casual car fans, in-market car buyers, or dedicated car owners - and is the first and only app to make sharing vehicle pictures easy, social and rewarding," said Eric Miltsch, The CarZar co-creator.  
 
With the CarZar App for iPhone, users can:
 
·  Upload car pictures and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare & Gowalla
·  Tag photos with their year, make and model
·  Ask community members to help tag a vehicle if the user can't identify it
·  Unlock badges
·  Comment on and 'like' vehicles shared from other users
·  Create a profile that's visible on www.TheCarZar.com
·  Build their following, increase their activity and create their influence to achieve
