APP CULTURE

Human connection

Being on your own has its benefits, but even the most reserved of us won’t deny that spending time with others can be inspiring, useful and plain enjoyable. The key is to find the right people – and here is a collection of apps to help do just that.

For singles

Dating apps have revolutionized the way people find romance and have grown into a huge category of their own. Well-known apps like OKCupid or Tinder have a massive reach and boast hundreds of happily matched couples. Another option is to go for a more niche service that connects singles who share specific interests, like Tourbar does for solo travelers.

For newcomers

Whether you’ve just moved to the opposite side of a large city, or to a different part of the world, the truth is that you’ll get to see your besties in person less often. It’s life – and a good excuse to meet new friends. Having someone trusted to ask for hidden eat-out gems, nearby gym recommendations, or quiet parks in your new neighbourhood will save you time and possible disappointment. And in a few years, you can become that welcoming host yourself!

For hobbyists

OK, so you’re happy with your friends and family and don’t need more people to discuss the weather with. But what if none of them share your hidden passion for gaming? There’s plenty of online communities that bring people together through interests, without ever taking things offline. Discuss games, movies, TV shows, latest workout routines, someone else’s tattoos, or the latest discoveries in data science – all through these apps.
