uCiC (you see I see) is a new app available on the Google Play Store and App Store that gives users the power to request any kind of information in their current location. Whether the user is a traveler in a new area, or permanently resides there, uCiC allows you send a public request to all other uCiC users in the area. This request can simply be a question, or you can post a photo in hopes of feedback from locals.
Users can gain karma points for helping solve requests or giving feedback, depending on how much the requester has offered. Consider it similar to a bounty of sorts. Privacy is important to the team behind uCiC, as you can remain anonymous as long as you’d like when you’re giving feedback or sending requests.
My experience with uCiC has been a pleasant one, as the app is very easy to use and utilizes a modern, simple look almost to the standards of Material Design. The slideout menu to the left gives you the options to create a new request, see requests near you, view all of your requests, see your gallery of images associated with the app, as well as your friends list and settings. The main screen is the map of your current area and shows other users around you with requests. However, as this is a fairly new app, I have only seen a couple other users in my four days of checking in.
Tapping the blue request button at the bottom directs you to choose how far you want your request to go in terms of kilometers, or choosing an entirely new area.
My experience with uCiC would be a lot more engaging if there were more users to interact with, but until the service matures and gathers more users, you might have a tough time getting what you’re looking for. However, the potential is extremely high with this service, and it definitely deserves a download at least to try out.
