According to a recent report, Gen Zs are more likely to feel lonely compared to other generations due to online activities -- but, thanks to the IRL App, users can connect with friends "in real life."
The app was developed by entrepreneur Abraham Shafi who was "personally driven to build an app that would bring people together." Shafi felt his addiction to social media was detrimental to his in-personal relationships and wanted to help others break the addictive cycle.
Thus, the IRL App was developed. It allows users to connect with known users from their phone contacts and send and receive invitations to hang out, go to an event, or participate in a group workout. The app also lets users make polls to decide on times, meeting places, and more.
The IRL app is a different kind of social app that speaks to young people's desires to experience real life and make meaningful memories.
