Comnect is an app that detects friends of your social network via GPS, whenever you are in the same location. As soon as you approach them in the real world, the social networks from your smartphone will be blocked. This function reminds you about the importance of talking to others face to face and raises your awareness of the importance of social interactions.
Our app provides the chance to communicate with your friends directly. So, during the time of face to face communication you will experience emotion from their facial expression, without worrying about the suspicion aspect.
Additionally Comnect measures the time your cell phone has been blocked and visualizes it on a chart. This makes it easy for you to keep track of the progress of your remedy. Ultimately, It raises your awareness of the meaning of friendship and reinforces healthy social interaction.
