Take two trends, mash them together. What do you get? OH THE HORROR!
This may be harsh on Kahnoodle, a new iPhone app that hopes to be “the fun & effortless way for busy couples to keep their relationship fresh and exciting”.
No, not swinging. Shame on you. This is less about group sex, and more about Groupon. Well, daily deals anyway: a feature to “search every daily deal site in one app to find discounts on awesome dates”.
That, and “give each other virtual pats on the back (‘kudos’) for doing sweet things for each other”. But we sense that’s not the likely lucrative business model that’s being aimed at here.
So, Kahnoodle is essentially the trend for daily-deals apps mixed with the newer trend for social-networking-for-couples apps (see: Pair, Cupple, Between). Perhaps it’ll be as big as swinging was in the 1980s. Place some pampas-grass plants on your balcony if you’re using it.
