I really like how you can build your own algorithm for finding friends.I'm already talking to two really cool people and I feel like there's no pressure or no hidden agenda - everyone on the site seems to just want to have real conversations.

As a result, the reply rate for messages that are read hovers above 80%.

Patook uses artificial intelligence to detect lulls in conversations and to help it keep going and suggest users actually meet.

After running a survey of over 2,000 US adults, we confirmed that only 1 in 4 adults find it easy to make friends.

And that number drops to 1 in 5 after moving to a new city or place.

- Jeanie Great Idea, promising development This app is exactly what I wanted and is perfect for introverts and people moving to a new area.

All it needs is more people using it and maybe a way to paste text into the message field.- Rebecca More :) Awesome concept, keep up the great work guys!- Cassidy ACTUALLY platonic So many other apps and websites have people sending crude pictures and/or messages.Gives you more info and options than any other friend app. Had some genuinely lovely conversations and it's so easy to use.- Laura Great app I really enjoy this app (though I do think the web interface is better).Finally there is an app that's purely platonic and the developers actually monitor for inappropriate content.
