Calgary-Developed ‘Peeple’ App Launches in North America


Calgary-developed ‘Peeple’ app, which allows users to rate other humans on a scale of one to five stars, is now available in North America.

The app, which is basically Yelp-like service for people, allows users to rate and provide reviews for people they come in contact with in their professional, personal, or dating life. Peeple has faced a lot of controversy since it was announced in October.

“We are a concept that has never been done before in a digital space. We want character to be a new form of currency. Peeple will provide you a safe place to manage your online reputation while protecting your greatest assets by making better decisions about the people around you.”
