【仅在手机电量低于5%时使用的社交APP】据外媒报道，一款名为“Dead With Me”的社交APP只能在手机电池电量低于5%时使用。这款社交APP将电池电量低的人连接起来，推动他们利用有限的时间和电量进行文字交流。每条消息旁边都会显示用户手机的剩余电量，随着这个数字的减小，人们会产生更强烈的和朋友继续对话的冲动。这款APP创造了一种特殊情境下有趣的社交方式，加强用户对生活中短暂瞬间的感受。当然，它可能会帮助你结识新朋友建立人际关系，但是同时也使用户面临着手机电量耗尽、无法打电话向任何人求救的困境，因此也需要使用者做出明智的操作。
Die With Me is not your typical messaging app.
You can only use it when your phone has less than 5 percent battery life. And it only lets you chat up random strangers whose phones are also dying.
And you thought there would never be a Great App Idea ever again. Ha!
First, this is not an April Fool’s joke. It’s a real app for iOS and Android.
Now that you know Jimmy Kimmel’s not punking us all, you probably want to know why. Why would you want to waste the last of your phone’s precious battery life talking to random strangers?
Die With Me was created to “do something positive with low battery,” app creator Dries Depoorter told Motherboard.
The app was originally designed as a dating app (because of course it was) to connect people with low battery and basically push them to meet up and chat IRL because of the limited time they’d have to text.
Die With Me appears to be pretty barebones in terms of functionality, which makes sense because the last thing you want when your phone’s dying is a million features to choose from.
The app asks for a nickname and displays your phone’s battery percentage next to each message. And you can only send text messages; there’s no option to send photos or videos.
As your percentage decreases, you’ll hopefully feel the urge to sync up with your new random pal to continue the conversation in person.
It’s a pretty clever idea that toys with our feelings on life’s fleeting moments, but again, would you waste your last battery power on someone you don’t even know and can’t even see a photo of?
Die With Me sounds like a fun way to potentially meet new people and make real, in-person connections, but it could also be used by creepy predators, too. I mean, not to get dark on this, but whoever you’re talking to will know your phone’s dead. You’re basically telling people you won’t have the ability to call anyone to save you if things go awry.
Be safe out there. Make smart choices.
