pplkpr is an app that tracks, analyzes, and auto-manages your relationships. Pairing Using a smartwatch, pplkpr measures your physical and emotional response to the people around you, and optimizes your social life accordingly.
pplkpr uses GPS and a heart rate wristband to keep track of when you're coming and going, and when you're feeling emotional. pplkpr implements a complex metric called "heart rate variability" that uses subtle changes in heart rhythm to determine your emotional state. This data is correlated with the people you interact with to determine who should be auto-scheduled into your life and who should be removed.
The app is designed to work with the Mio Alpha and Mio Link wrist bands. (http://mioglobal.com) You can also use it without the wrist band, and self report instead.
Ratings and Reviews
Can we get sliders on the emotions? I may not just be angry, maybe I’m a little annoyed or frustrated and maybe I’m straight raging. Degrees of emotions count as well. I’d like to make notes attached to a friend too like maybe they didn’t hear me out, is there a pattern to more than feelings.
This app has great potential especially for those who may be on the spectrum of it is tweaked. Is there a professional psychologist consulting? That might help.
Also please include Apple Watch as a peripheral. So many people have it.
The App is great but needs a lot of improvements
The idea of the app is fantastic. An app that can manage the at times stressful and confusing friend life, but I found that there were a lot of missing features in the app. First off the app only allows you to input friends that are on your social media accounts. When in reality not all the people you hangout with are your Facebook friends. Then I also found that there was no way to reach the settings to check device pairing or adjust the social media accounts connected to the app. Then I also believe that the app should not allow users the option of putting in the way they feel about the person after leaving. That completely defeats the purpose of the heart rate monitor and at that point the user could just keep track of these things by itself. Then it's also be cool if the app would give the user notifications when there was a jump in their heart rate. Either asking them if they were hanging out with someone or if they previously checked in that the person was making them "excited" or "aroused". Finally I feel that the emotional options on the app are not the best. Calm and Excited were more frequently used emotions. Overall the idea of the app is great it just needs a lot of work before its will be ready for popular use.
Heart rate wrist band.
I can tell that a lot of the reviewers don't know about the heart rate wrist bands. I like the idea of an app that reads my body's reaction to people around me. My main problem with it and the reason for the 3 stars is that the band is $99. I'm not going to spend that much just to find out what my body thinks about my friends and the manual input of info isn't exciting or accurate enough. If the creators can find a better way around that, then I'd be fully on board. I don't mind the facebook thing but I think it'll help to allow manual input of friends by the users and also use of their phone contact lists.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
