These days, there are apps for pretty much anything, from getting a cleaner in after a party to chartering a private jet and booking a massage. ‘Wiith’, a new San Francisco-based app, is designed to buddy you up with people looking for buddies. No romance, no sex, just pure, unadulterated friendship. The premise is simple: if you’re new to a city, or just want to meet someone new, the app connects you with like-minded others inside a set radius.
