Soon after downloading Cloak, one can connect it with Foursquare and Instagram to know the whereabouts of the contacts on the mentioned networks through their most recent check-ins.

According to the Washington Post, the app is the work of programmer/"creative" Brian Moore and former Buzzfeed creative director Chris Baker, who seems to have specialized in vaguely misanthropic apps.

Baker wrote in an e-mail that while things like Twitter and Facebook are packed elevators where everyone's crammed in together, anti-social stuff is on the rise, adding that people would be seeing more and more of these types of projects.
