It provides basic guidelines to help you or others pause, reflect, and decide. Also, you have the option to share your result on social media, or wherever you like.
Without further ado, here are some ‘real life’ use cases:
So as you can see, the app is not only a tool to improve ourselves, but also fuel for conflict, fun, and entertainment.
