Mountain View, CA, March 18, 2014 - The group activities app, likewise, launches today to connect likeminded people with engaging activities in the real world. The bootstrapped company has set off on a social mission to strengthen bonds between friends while simultaneously getting people to be more active. Likewise works by providing a database of 100+ activities, allowing users to select which ones they like, see which of their friends are also interested and easily plan an event around that activity.

Likewise is a practical tool that helps anyone who is looking to improve the quality of their social life by combining activities they enjoy with people they enjoy. The sleek interface is extremely focused on the first use case of creating group activities among friends. Users can connect with other likewise users, but may also invite any of their Facebook friends to the events they create, even when those people are not using likewise.

"The idea for likewise came about when I realized that I was tired of doing the same things over and over again with my friends. My social life had become stale but fixing the problem was daunting," says Robert Sanchez, CEO and co-founder of Likewise. "Likewise helps people break out of their regular social patterns by finding new and interesting activities and great people to share those experiences with."

The first version of Likewise is available on the iPhone App Store as a free download. The application is compatible with iPhones 4 and later running iOS7.
