DJI, the world’s leading drone maker, has launched DJI+ Discover, a new mobile app that provides a social network for drone owners to connect with each other, with companies, and with clients.
“DJI+ Discover lets people in the same area connect socially and professionally in a way that will bind the drone community even tighter together,” says DJI e-commerce director Paul Guo.
There are 4 main sections in the app: Nearby Search, Experience, Store, and Forum.
Nearby Search is a way for both casual and professional drone photographers and flyers to connect, chat, and meet. It shows users who are based near you, as well as flying hotspots and geo-tagged photos. Professionals can use the system to promote their services and connect with clients. Clients can use the system to leave reviews on the profiles of professionals.
The Experience section of the app shows you nearby stores and official DJI events that might be relevant to you.
The Store and Forum sections are in-app ways to access the official DJI online store and online forums.
Here’s a short 3-minute video by DJI that introduces the company’s new app:
If you’re a DJI drone photographer and would like to plug into this new social networking community, you can download the free app for iOS and Android through the App Store and through Google Play, respectively. It’s currently available in the US, UK, Germany, Spain, and Australia.
