For all the vehement insistence that technology is damaging interpersonal relationships, 'Friendsome' is a new app designed specifically to make people better at managing the many relationships in their lives. Though technically a memory app, Friendsome helps users to remember the details of their encounters with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, relatives, and anyone else who one might otherwise hope to keep in their personal circle.
Everyone has had the experience of blanking on someone's name or details even though that person remembers everything about oneself, and likewise a distant connection remembering intimate details immediately makes one feel important and valued. Friendsome keeps a record of all the people users meet as well as pertinent information to help make those memories stick, helping to strengthen relationships in the long run. The app also automatically sends notifications with that information when users enter a space where they've already met someone, which gives them a leg up if a chance encounter happens again.
