Available for Apple and Android devices, Porch Light is an app designed to help people connect on many levels. Unlike most social media platforms that mainly tell you what others are doing, Porch Light will tell you how others are doing. It’s ideal for college students who have left home for the first time because it allows regular check-ins with parents who are adjusting to life without their kids around. A simple emoji-driven dashboard allows users to track how each of their contacts feels in real-time. Users can also text, call, and FaceTime their contacts within the app if additional support is needed. The app itself is free, with in-app purchases available.
