Caret – Turn Your Address Book into a Social Media Platform | NewsWatch Review


Whenever we text or call someone, we never really know if they’re available or not. But what if we could find out peoples’ statuses and share our own in real-time?

That’s where Caret comes in.

Caret is a new app that allows you to turn your phone’s address book into a social media platform all on its own, harnessing your phone’s unexploited sensors through the cloud.

Caret lets businesses automatically assign presence information to customers or other businesses and share whether they’re available or not as a promotion.

These automatic statuses are triggered when you are on a call, have a low battery, or even when turn the silent switch on. And if that’s not enough, you can also create any trigger you want, like status-based triggers.

To keep private things private, Caret uses Tresorit’s [pronunciation: tre – sore – it] end-to-end cloud encryption technology called “ZeroKit.”

Caret’s goal is to bring your business’ contacts closer to private and business customers so you can easily launch your own service through Caret’s service marketplace and its public interfaces.

You can download the Caret app for free in the App, Google Play, or Amazon store today.
