In short, it's an app designed for connecting with one person, could be a BFF or family member but all signs point to it being for your main squeeze. Exhibit A: the thumbkiss feature. Press your thumb on your phone's screen, and if the other person does it too, both your phones will vibrate. (And if you're solo but still looking to get in on this latest digital way to woo, never fear, someone has already come up with the matchmaking Pairmixer.)
Since I'm already overwhelmed by my current roster of social networks, I couldn't imagine being on yet another thing and doubted how popular this would be, but the rest of Team Spark really saw the value in it. Not just for long distance romances, but they also pointed out it'd be handy to have all your communication in one place. Instead of wondering whether that bit of info you need (resto where you're meeting for dinner, photo you really liked) was in a text, email or instant message ... you'd only have to look in one spot. Our resident DJ also noted that you can't easily share a song via cellphone, so he could see this app being handy for sharing tunes with his sweetie while out and about.
So Spark listeners, we're curious to know what you think about the concept of a social network for two. Do you give it a thumbkiss, or the kiss off? Let us know in the comments below!
