The FriendTruster Social & Relationship App

You just tap on the Trust Icon to issue Trust Markers. When ten Trust Markers are issued then your friend gets full access to your Secret Hiding Place, i.e. personal writings, pictures, videos, and anything else of personal meaning to you that you wouldn’t share with somebody on a day to day basis.

I’m 51 years old, and was thinking one day about my best friends in grade school. What was it that made those relationships so great? And then it came to me that I had no responsibility. No bills to pay. No rent payment to make, and didn’t have to worry about money. No wonder my grade school friendships were so great, carefree, and we trusted each other. I was in complete control of my environment, even if I really wasn’t. You know what I’m talking about, right? It was my world, and I controlled what was in it.

These days, everything is work, work, work. Social trust is at an all-time low, and betrayal is at an all-time high, and the only thing I have control of is clocking out at 5:00 pm to go home!!! So, I came up with this app that puts me and you in complete control of the friends and relationships we make or don’t want to make. It’s so easy to use a 5 year old could use it. Alls you do is have a conversation with somebody. If you feel the person you’re talking with deserves a 1/10th of your trust then you tap on a Trust Icon (it’s the word “trust” on a U.S. penny), and issue one Trust Marker per conversation. The person you’re having the conversation with has the same options. If after ten conversations with the same person you issue a 10th Trust Marker then that person gets access to all your personal stuff you wouldn’t share with just anybody on an everyday basis, stuff like videos, pictures, personal writings. All that stuff is kept in your Secret Hiding Place on the app.

The beauty of this game is that you are in total control of who you want to trust whether for a best friend or a more intimate relationship. This app will take you back to those feelings you had when you were with your grade school best friends.
