Close Ties app is for those among whom you can talk about anything, who genuinely care about your success, whose success you genuine care about, and who aren't sunk costs*. Make the world a better place one close tie at a time!

What are Sunk Costs?
"Sunk costs is a gift from your former self. The question is do you have to accept that gift? New relationship is shiny and exciting, but it will not be a new relationship for long. And then you're still stuck with an old relationship, and the question is will your old relationship a year from now be better than your old relationship that you currently have is. And if the answer is yes, sunk costs completely apply. But the answer is no then what you're really doing is shopping for novelty not ignoring sunk costs." - Seth Godin

Are you miserable using Facebook?
Do you loath the culture decay that you see around us from the negative influences of Instagram and TikTok?
Have you ever wished that there was an app like iMessage that works universally and is not glitchy like Signal, Telegram, or WhatsApp?

Close Ties app is a private, minimum social network that makes you happy while using it, supplements your real in-life social interactions, and gives you the iMessages-level, great messaging experience universally.

"Close ties"-ship can replace friendships in Facebook.

Our status update can replace Facebook's and Instagram's posts.

And the app's old, classic messaging experience, inspired by iMessage in its early days when Steve Jobs was alive, can replace the messaging app that you are currently using universally.

Stop giving yourself in and being negatively influenced by Meta and the other narcissistic companies who care about profit over you yourselves. The better and healthier alternative for your happiness and well-being is right here.


Calendar messaging allows you to message each other under each date in the calendar. Each close tie gets a separate calendar messaging space with you and each date is like its own conversation space. There is also a shared calendar in "More" page where you can see all of your close ties' calendar messages at once and share a calendar message to multiple close ties at once.

Status update allows you to share important updates in your life. Each new update deletes the previous update and notifies all of your close ties to see it in the message detail page. This is a great way to stay in touch with all of your close ties.

Your everyday condition can vary depending on how you slept, if you are sick, and etc. In the app, you can set and track your today's condition in a calendar, rating it using a simple slider from being like a "zombie" to having your "peak productivity". You can share today's condition that will disappear after today, manually to close ties of your choice, and this will notify them to see it in the message detail page right below your status update.

• You would be notified at 6pm in your time zone if you have not scrolled through today's calendar messages today.
• Tap on your calendar message bubbles to edit or delete the message.
• Search any messages including calendar messages at once and find them easily and fast.
• Read receipts are automatically enabled after 200 messages are sent.
• There is a feature to leave conversations. After you leave a conversation and when the other person sends a message in the conversation, the other person will be notified that you left. If you were previously close ties, you would no longer be close ties. This does not delete calendar messages with that person, but blocking that person will permanently delete them (from/to that person).
• There is no clutters around the messaging textfield!
• Load up to 500 latest messages every time, and pull down to load the rest of the messages.

Very light weight and snappy app.

I love the concept of being able to chat with anybody even if they don’t have the account on the app. Keep it up.
