FriendApp looking for tech cofounder

FriendApp's vision is to help people know who to check-in with, and to make the most of their free time with others. Only you really know the people that you'd like to have more involved in your life, and technology can assist you in making that happen more easily.

People are lonelier than ever, and we can shape technology to improve how humans connect.

Over the past year, we built an app for iPhone that imports a user's contacts, where users can group contacts into lists, see recently added contacts, and use the app as a starting point for communication.

There is much more in the roadmap, and we are looking for a passionate technical cofounder who wants to get involved at this early stage of the company.

FriendApp helps people focus on relationships (personal and business) they want to nurture. The iPhone pilot is currently available in the app store and the company is actively seeking user feedback. In 2023, FriendApp looks to reduce the effort required for people to share and discover things that they can do with people they know.
