A Worldwide friendship App for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
»We are Friends« will become a Worldwide friendship App for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. With this first Cross Border free Communication App, our users can now take ownership of their life and easily create friendships both locally and internationally. Find friends with common interests and communicate in a way that suits them by using video, pictures, speech or in writing. They can even use our preset emoji selection to describe how they feel. In the App the users will also be able to find life learning lessons, listen to interesting podcasts, watch videos, play games and solve puzzles and so much more.
With »We are Friends« we want to replace loneliness with communication, exercise, fun and learning – in a safe and secure way.
