Jake Stephens, upon the success of the Crazam app he debuted last fall, has moved out of his parent's basement and into his girlfriend's apartment and developed his new app called Kindred Spirit.
The Kindred Spirit is different than the Crazam app in that instead of allowing you to detect if your date is crazy in some manner, it will detect where dates are that are kindred spirits. It will use your GPS and based on a questionnaire that contains 400 possible questions will detect at what percentage the people around you are kindred spirits.
According to Stephens, it has great success that leads to many dates and some successful partnerships. There are some downsides however as Stephens has learned that his Kindred Spirit located within a 10 mile radius from his home is his girlfriend's best friend and is actually more attractive that his girlfriend.
Janice Huddleston , one of the apps original testers stated that she learned that while it's a beautiful concept it has it's drawbacks. When she activated the app, she realized that it can be difficult when you learn that your kindred spirit lives 4,000 miles away, is in jail, or just plain unattractive.
"My most compatible kindred spirit, according to the app, works in IT in London and has an fascination with Dungeon's and Dragon's which is all fine with me, except for the IT part," said Huddleston.
Stephens agrees that there are some kinks to iron out. Perhaps not with the app itself as he claims it's near perfect, but with his situation with his girlfriend.
The Kindred Spirit app is available for Android and iPhone.
