Relationship-Building App Refresh Redesigned on iOS

refresh 650

Relationship-building app Refresh has been redesigned on iOS, giving users more tools for creating better relationships based on common interests and important moments in the lives of the people they meet. The app aggregates a user’s internet footprint, with data or “insights” from a variety of sources, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Foursquare and AngelList, among others.

This update includes insights from new sources, including SlideShare, Quora, Yelp, Flickr and more. When all of this data combines, Refresh gives users a look at the lives of their business or personal contacts, giving them talking points for future meetings with those individuals. This may include names of family members, photos of recent vacations, information about hobbies and more.
