Die With Me: A Social Network for People Whose Phones Are About to Die
There’s an elite cadre of smartphone users out there, those who choose to live their lives on the edge, to drain their smartphone batteries to the absolute limit before recharging. Previously, there hadn’t been any way for these hardcore phone adventurers to find one another, but now there’s Die With Me, an app exclusively for people whose phone batteries are at 5 percent or less.
Die With Me puts users in a chatroom where the only thing the chatters have in common are their mutually low smartphone batteries. When your phone finally dies, your fellow chatters get an alert that you “DIED,” as seen in the picture above. It’s like something that Jigsaw would have come up with if he was an app developer instead of a serial killer.
