The daily commute for many usually means listening to music or reading a book, but the 'Switchback' app looks to make the most of this time by helping users connect with one another. The app works by having users share profiles with others that they are traveling with to make a connection based on similar interests. This makes the commuting experience more fun and interactive, while also working to increase your social group in a simple manner.
The 'Switchback' app comes as a response to the growing number of commuters who are looking for ways to branch out from their routine to meet new people that they might not interact with otherwise. The app encourages random socialization in a way that is discreet and relaxed.
