"Drones are summoned much like taxis in other popular service apps. Your desired task is either noted at the outset using presets, or customized using voice commands."
"Once the drone arrives, your phone's flashlight is used to pair your device with the drone. From there, it depends on the task, the object-based UI is very easy to understand. Depending on the task, drones either operate autonomously or are flown by skilled operators"

, Gofor isn't a real company, but shows us a potential near future world where personal drones are as common as taxis, and can be used for for tasks that range from helping extend your selfie range to performing audio and video surveillance of your neighbors. Gofor posits a future where we will use drones to get a wifi or cell phone signal while in a canyon, to watch for speed traps while driving, to watch over us when we walk alone and feel unsafe, and to check restaurant waiting times.
