The Love App. Digital life and couples culture in South Korea.

Reminds me, you know for awhile that they had digital frames for sale in tech shops? You could record a short clip and it'd auto-play on a small screen. Too gimmicky for me and they look tacky compared to old photo frames. I feel like Between is something similar because a person in a relationship can post all kinds of snippets of a convo or memory but in the end it's just incomplete.

It's not so much as a "living" memory but a memento of a happier time.

Thanks for posting the article, I like reading about innovative tech and how it affects society.

What happens when you break up and want to Between with somebody new? Are all your previous memories deleted?

More evidence that Simon and Martina are awful.

Pretty interesting article, despite.

Pretty sure the developer will include a delete all data except for app function JIC.

Couples digital culture is also happening in US but it's evolving a bit differently. (I started Avocado, which works like Between but has a US audience.)

One funny thing we've learned…the biggest break-up day for people using a couples or family app is St. Patrick's Day. By far.

The biggest reconciliation day? The day following.
