I like the WhosHere app for Apple iPhone iOS. Is there a similar social networking/chat app that uses location / gps to find people to chat or network with for Android?

Here's some more info on the application: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/whoshere/id284973016

SayHi seems to replicate WhosHere. The plus side of it is that it has a map function so you're able to see how many users are currently online. The downside of the app is that it uses your exact GPS location which might not go down with some users (ie. using the app at home/office).

Also, there are point rewards that you get for completing your profile and using the app frequently. You can use these points to contacting users that have a hot status or use to send gifts - you have the option to buy points but if you use it enough then put that credit card away :)

Here's what I could find so far:

  • Match2Blue for Android enables you to meet new friends and find old ones anywhere, anytime. It takes location- and interest-based mobile social networking to the next level. Search with match2blue for users who have identical or similar interests to yours

  • SinglesAroundMe works to plot singles on a geographical map around you, where you can control the distance from 100 yards to 100 miles /km. You can define your search to display only the type of singles who interest you. You can view a user's profile, photos and send various flirtatious winks and text messages, add them to your hot list and /or block list. It also features a uniquely fun “Destination Search” tool, which allows you to look for singles at specific locations of your choice – in bars, restaurants, resorts, distant cities, wherever, before leaving home.

  • FlirtMaps, the first geo-aware mobile dating apps to find dates! You are either very smart or very lucky! You’ve just found FlirtMaps, the first geo-aware mobile dating app that lets you find your next date right in the neighborhood... or around the world!

  • Skout for flirting, dating, friendship and love! Chat and browse photos for FREE! Use SKOUT to flirt, play, party, find a date or new friends. At SKOUT we take your safety and privacy very seriously. No one can figure out your exact whereabouts.

  • I'm Here Plus allows you to use SMS text messaging to check the status and GPS location of any person on your contact list, as long as they have "Im Here Plus" installed as well. You may also choose to send others your current location via SMS, whether with just your GPS address or with an edited personalized location.

  • Nearley is popular Facebook location application to list all facebook users located within your distance.

  • If you root your android phone and enable wifi tethering, you could use your ipod touch tethered through the droid and still use whosHere

I haven't tested any of these out. If you can comment with which of these you prefer, that would be great! thanks!
