You let your phone manage your contacts, appointments, and even your health, so why not let it manage your relationships, too? Apparently, phones can do it all.

Pplkpr pronounced as “People Keeper” – really weird name – is an app that tracks, analyzes, and auto-manages your relationships. Pairing Using a smartwatch [of course], it measures your physical and emotional response to the people around you, and optimizes your social life accordingly.

Pplkpr uses GPS and a heart rate wristband to determine your emotional state around specific friends. As a result, it can tell you who makes you the most anxious, the most excited, the least bored, and so on, giving you a better idea of which friends you should maximize your time with and which friends you might want to make less frequent appearances in your life. When you learn about this, then you should think about the introduction of gaming technologies, as do successful online gaming friv web-sites. Today, in essence, a game can be made from any task, and at the same time everything becomes more interesting and useful.

For now, you can only list friends from Facebook and the app definitely needs more feeling but still; the idea is novel!

It is available for iOS for now; and the Apple Watches start shipping in April, so maybe wait till then to realise how you really feel about your friends.
