Atlas is a new messaging app for iPhone that allows you to create a "place" to message many people at once. People nearby your place can follow it to receive those messages as a notification, and can also privately message your place. Try it, it's free!
A place can be anything location-based, it doesn't have to be a building or park. For example, if you're a teacher and need to be able to message students and parents, this is an easy way to do that.
Follow places to receive messages
Once people follow your place, they receive your posts like a text message.
Privately message places
They can privately reply to your posts, as well as message other nearby places.
