20 DAY STRANGER IS A MOBILE APP THAT CREATES AN INTIMATE AND ANONYMOUS CONNECTION BETWEEN YOU AND ANOTHER PERSON. FOR 20 DAYS, YOU GET CONTINUOUS UPDATES ABOUT WHERE THEY ARE, WHAT THEY ARE DOING, AND EVENTUALLY EVEN HOW THEY ARE FEELING, AND THEM LIKEWISE ABOUT YOU. BUT YOU WILL NEVER KNOW WHO THIS PERSON IS. DOES THIS CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE YOU SEE THROUGH OUT YOUR DAY, ANYONE OF WHICH COULD BE YOUR STRANGER?
