For new moms, it's easy to get isolated while caring for the baby day in and day out, so the Peanut app is using technology to help those young mothers connect with others in the same situation. The app uses the swiping system made popular by Tinder for matching, but Peanut is assuredly designed for friendship between moms going through similar experiences.

The Peanut app takes information on users interests — things like whether one prefers indoor or outdoor activities and how often users are available to socialize, as well as the age of the user's child — and offers up potential friends in accordance. Once connected, it lets users chat with one another and create groups with other matches.
