Western society seems to have lost that feeling of discovering a person; nowadays we know everything about each other before ever having met.

Grindr does it for homosexual men, Blendr for heterosexuals, OK Cupid hints at it, Skout relies on pictures, Highlight is Facebook compatible only and then there is Come Together: the straightforward meet up app for all people, no profile pictures, no obscure hints, no exclusion of groups of people, just select what you are looking for, let the app do the work for you and Come Together face to face.
One of the more unique features is the exclusion of profile pictures. Founder and CEO of Red Pike LLC Jens Van Poucke explains: "the idea is that people meet up and get to know each other face to face; nowadays, by providing pages of personal information and pictures online, there is no such need anymore".
The simple interface lets the user select their preferences and search radius in just a matter of a few minutes. The app is intended to be put in the background and work for its user, when there is a hit, the user has the option to chat with the person and the idea is to then meet up face to face.
Come Together is rather tight on the security aspect; a PIN code login, no email address, no personal info, firm security settings and an age restriction of 18+ only. "At Red Pike we strongly believe that what is private should remain private until the person is ready to share that information; the PIN code login was a no brainer in times where identity theft is ever popular, the app is intended to enrich your life, not ruin it!" states Van Poucke.
The app is not meant to be used by just one type of social group, it aims to bridge the gap between the virtual and real worlds across all social groups. It is a one-stop shop for all and everyone; looking for a friend, a date, a fishing companion, biking buddy, running mate, etc... "The fact that people are more social than ever before, albeit only on a virtual level is a frightening thought. Depression and anti-social behavior is on the rise, young people even resort to online help for social interaction. All that was needed was a bridge to close that gap, and we strongly believe Come Together is that bridge!" says Van Poucke.
Come Together eliminates the social barrier that creates that awkward phase in which a person is unsure of another person's reaction. There is no easier way to approach a total stranger, already knowing he or she is looking for the same exact thing as you.
"There is growing trend of putting less private information out on the Internet and we want to be a frontrunner in this. The user only provides some basic info through the app; the important information is exchanged face to face when the time is ready. Western society seems to have lost that feeling of discovering a person; nowadays we know everything about each other before ever having met."
