Roomie is an application that asks users to react to common roommate scenarios; then, based on their reactions, they are given a roommate style. Through the process of choosing reactions and being assigned a style, users reflect on their past experiences and habits. If they choose to, users may add their Roomie style to existing roommate search resources to add an extra element to their profiles. The user may also connect with and message other Roomie users to find potential roommates or to chat about their experiences and perspectives. A Roomie style profile can serve as a starting point for conversations that are not usually had after taking traditional roommate surveys.
