Keen to find like-minded drone enthusiasts in the local area or promote your aerial services? DJI has launched a social platform called DJI+ Discover to help you do exactly that. It’s accessible via the DJI+ Discover app, which is available on both iOS and Android.
The idea is to give drone enthusiasts a place to connect socially and professionally. The app enables drone pilots to start conversations and meet up. It also functions as a professional marketplace for aerial service providers and potential clients.
More broadly, the app is a gateway to the DJI community, and includes an integrated version of the DJI Forum, the DJI online store, SkyPixel, upcoming DJI events and more.
Paul Guo, director of E-Commerce at DJI, said “Drone pilots like to get together to fly, learn from each other and share experiences with like-minded people.
In the same way, people want an easy way to find trustworthy professional aerial service providers nearby. DJI+ Discover lets people in the same area connect socially and professionally, in a way that will bind the drone community even tighter together.”
The app is divided into four sections: Nearby Search, Experience, Store and Forum. Users can sign up using an email address, and profiles can be linked to existing DJI accounts.
Importantly, the app is open to anyone – from those curious about the technology without any previous experience to professional service providers.
Nearby Search shows social and professional users nearby, as well as flying hotspots and geo-tagged photos from SkyPixel.
The Nearby Search section is separated for social and professional users. The platform offers social users a way to connect, chat and meet. In a similar way, professional users can introduce their offer and services and connect with new clients. Users of professional services can write reviews directly on service providers’ profiles.
The Experience section guides users to nearby stores, and official DJI events. Other interactive features will be posted in this section.
The Store section takes users directly to DJI’s online store.
DJI’s official Forum is directly integrated in the DJI+ Discover app, making it easier for people to discuss, share best practices and get tips directly through their mobile phone.
The app can be downloaded for free on this through this link, and is currently available in the US, the UK, Germany, Spain and Australia.
