I find quite funny that you need an app to do this, and that someone needs to do it at all.

While most social networks aim to connect people, one new service seeks to join the growing trend of doing the opposite and help you avoid them.

Cloak uses public location data from other social networks, Foursquare and Instagram, to determine the locations of others you know.

Users can choose to receive an alert when certain people are believed to be nearby.

It is the latest in the recent trend of "anti-social", or secretive, apps.Anti-Social App To Help Avoid People [bbc.com]

Hm. So if you've got a restraining order against someone, the judge can order them to install and use this app so they can't say "I had no idea she was in the next aisle!"

I think somebody from the model home already owns the trademark.

Holy Mackerel! Well this is for those who are anti-social anyways. But it is funny that you would want to hide from people when you can just show your face to them and give them your middle finger if you don't really like them. Just my thought :P
