Add a geo input, not giving location access to any apps these days. Far too much abuse by the general app market to let anything have access at this point

That would defeat the purpose of the whole hyperlocal apps.

How will you prevent the YikYak outcome (devolving into horrible, anonymous comments)

I don't think we can prevent horrible anonymous comments. Thats the truth.

Even Twitter & Facebook are fighting this even though they are not anonymous apps.

Amazing Idea!

Love it, but how can i increase my radius?

You can click on the radius (number) in top text. It is an editable field.
