Refresh seeks to eliminate small talk by providing users with detailed information about people they’re meeting with and suggesting topics of conversation.
Refresh looks at your calendar of events and creates instant dossiers of people you’re planning to meet. The idea is to provide users with information that might be interesting or relevant to them as a way to build stronger connections between people.
To get Refresh to work, users connect their iPhone calendars, along with any number of different social and email accounts to the app. That includes Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Gmail and Google apps, Google+, AngelList, Evernote, Foursquare, Yahoo, and iCloud. Once that’s done, Refresh will begin collecting information about people you’re scheduled to meet with in real-time.
