Basically, it's like Foursquare, but with the social aspects were taken to a much greater degree. Foursquare lets users 'bragged' about where their friends in other places, while Wallit application want to show where you are, for others who are in the same place.

The company says it has created a virtual wall in places throughout New York City, San Francisco, London, Singapore, Ontario and Paris, and continues to build others around the world.
