There is only one person you have no secrets for

This Android app is an experiment to test the privacy implications of true love. Two loved ones install the app and activate it. The app shows a compass that always points towards the other app. This is implemented by using Google Cloud Messaging to trigger the other app to send its GPS location to an app server. The client can then request the location and render the arrow.

This repository contains both the client (app) and server (api) code. It has been cleared of email addresses and passwords. A working version of the app is available in Connect-Forever.apk and in the Play store.
