An app that lets you discover and connect with amazing people, groups and communities near you via instant messaging - use your Facebook credentials, create your own ‘gang’ by inviting one or more friends.
You can then ‘swipe through’ other gangs, individuals, and communities. If you want to join up with any of them, just say Yay! If they reciprocate, they get added to a ‘Mix’ where you can instantly chat, share stuff and eventually decide to meet/hang-out.
Think of this as an amalgam of Tinder & WhatsApp (but not limited to dating).

Aggy's Pick
Would you call yourself happy?
I wouldn’t. And that is NOT to say I am unhappy.
A phenomenal comic from Oatmeal that helped me deal with my own self better - this talks about how Happiness mayn’t be the thing to chase.
I very strongly recommend reading this, and I’ll leave you with a few lines from it:
“I’m not unhappy.
I’m just busy.
I’m interested.”
