Answers to frequently asked questions
What is CMPLMNTS?
CMPLMNTS is an app for iOS and Android, which you can use to pay people in your immediate surrounding compliments for their “body”, “outfit” and “charisma”. We developed CMPLMNTS to enable people to pay or receive anonymous compliments. The app is supposed to trigger positive interaction between friends as well as strangers. Paying compliments with CMPLMNTS is a quick way to spread happiness at any time. The positive effect a compliment has on the receiver is what drove us to develop the app, because – as Abraham Lincoln used to say – “Everybody likes a compliment.”
How much does it cost?
The app is free.
When was CPLMNTS released?
March 1, 2018 (World Compliment Day).
What does CMPLMNTS mean?
It’s short for compliments.
How does CMPLMNTS earn money?
WWe don’t have monetarization models applied at the moment. If that changes in the future, we’ll transparently inform our users.
How does the app work?
On a map you can see everyone in your immediate surrounding, approx. 25m around you. If someone attracts your attention, you can pay them an anonymous compliment. Click on their picture at the bottom of the app and chose a personal characteristic from the categories “body”, “outfit”, or “charisma”. The complimented user will receive a notification. Of course, you can pay multiple compliments from different categories.
How do I log in and which information is needed?
We only need very little personal information, as we solely identify you with your smartphone. We neither ask for your name nor your country. What we do need is a recent picture for your profile to make you recognizable for other users, as well as your location, so that you can receive compliments at any time. If you like, you can add your age and gender to your profile, which will be visible for the people you compliment.
Why is my face visible?
The picture should only display what the people around you can see anyway. It’s necessary, however, to ensure that the right person is complimented. The people receiving your compliments don’t learn anything about you, unless you’ve added your age or gender to your profile.
What is Yiggles and what do I need it for?
Yiggles is the CMPLMNTS point system. You need Yiggles to unlock your received compliments. You can earn Yiggles by paying compliments, inviting friends, and using the app daily.
