Kweak is a communication utility that allows people to better express emotional context through voice, video and text on smartphones and wearables. Digital has improved speed and lowered the cost of communication, but it has stripped it of its depth, paving the way for emoticons to fill interpretative gaps in text-based communication. Kweak understands individual intent and recommends the best effects to infuse messages with the right emotional context, for a quicker, deeper experience.
