Mad at your ex? Well, with a new app, you’ll soon be able to rate him or her for everyone to see. The app, called Peeple, is expected to launch in late November, according to the Washington Post.
The app allows users to assign a number of stars between one and five to a person, as long as your have his or her phone number. As the Post notes, once your name is in the system, you can’t be removed.
“People do so much research when they buy a car or make those kinds of decisions,” said Julia Cordray, a co-founder of Peeple, in an interview with the publication. “Why not do the same kind of research on other aspects of your life?”
The company, which is valued at $7.6 million, has positive reviews posted online instantly. Negative ratings, however, are placed in a queue to allow for disputes. Interestingly, if the person isn’t registered for the website, only the positive reviews are made public. There’s also supposed to be a slate of off-limits topics for ratings, including cursing, sexism and a discussion of health conditions.
“As two empathetic, female entrepreneurs in the tech space, we want to spread love and positivity,” Cordray said to the newspaper. “We want to operate with thoughtfulness.”
Unsurprisingly, people have given the app negative reviews online. Learn more about the app on its website.
