Once Aaron is settled in his new residence, there is a major logisitcal issue on ensuring that all his friends and family know about his new address.

With Compile, all Aaron has to do, is update his master contact of himself, and his updates are available and reflected on every other person that possesses his contact.
Compile aims to show as much useful information in an elegant manner. Sometimes, presenting too much information at once can appear to be convoluted and difficult to interpret. While designing Compile, we aimed to strike a perfect balance between the amount of information presented and how it is presented to the user. Today, a person has their personal information spread across multiple services. Early on, we knew that tapping into these services will be invaluable for Compile.
Compile has the ability to connect to social networks and pull useful information. Latest updates or tweets are just some of the information that Compile will be able to provide.
