People love spending time together on evenings, weekends or holidays. They love it so much they even live together.
And we love this too.
But what we don’t like is people fighting over little details. We want them to focus on the essential:
ENJOY LIFE WITH THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE
People often lack…
What if we had the answer to these problems at all time with us?
- Which hotel do we choose ?
- Whose car do we use ?
- Who leaves earlier ?
- I paid the bill, how do we split?
- How do I pay you back ?
- Who keeps track of expenses ?
- When do we leave?
- Where do we go?
- Who wants to do what ?
We provide them with the simplest way to share moments
