What's it about?
PEEPLE is a social-networking app that lets users rate people professionally, personally, and romantically. To create your account, either create a new user account or sync your Facebook account, and then choose three words to describe yourself (such as "lawyer, soccer, knitting"). Once other users write reviews, your profile includes them, the three words you chose, and an overall rating. To find other users, you can sync your Facebook account, sync contacts from your device, or search your local area for other users with the app. Users have the option to review and delete reviews about themselves, and those not using the app can't be rated publicly -- yet. The developer's plan is to charge people to see all content written about people, even if they're not using the app. If a user deactivates his account, it goes dormant but isn't really deleted: The information is no longer public, and user activity and recommendations go live again if the user reactivates his account.
