Abstract: In the wake of the mainstream success of dating apps, platonic versions for finding friends have been developed. As these apps are currently less established than their dating counterparts, user experience on friendship apps is an under-researched subfield. This study aimed to investigate if gender differences in recall and recognition of friendship app profiles exist. 194 National University of Singapore students were recruited and randomly assigned to either the male app profiles or female app profiles condition. Participants then scrolled through fictional sets of profiles, before answering a series of questions which tested their recall and recognition of the stimuli. The results showed no significant difference for either stress or work engagement between Wysa and the control condition. However, some significant correlations were observed between variables. This suggests that both mental wellness apps do have some beneficial effects on users, although the results from this study were not significant enough to be conclusive.
