Mei for iOS

AI for Relationships
Analyze Your WhatsApp Chats


It can sometimes be hard to interpret text message conversations and understand the person on the other side. Luckily, there’s now AI (artificial intelligence) that can help. Our AI assistant Mei (pronounced ‘May’) can analyze any of your exported WhatsApp conversations to give you personalized advice and insights she’s learned from analyzing millions of conversations just like yours.

Download Mei and log in with your phone number. Then open WhatsApp and export your desired WhatsApp conversation into Mei. Buy credits, pick the type of relationship (romantic or professional) and the question you want answered and hit the pulsating icon. Mei will return with a response in seconds.

She currently analyzes 2 types of relationships: romantic and professional (new!).


Texting someone you like as more than a friend and wondering if they feel the same way? It’s sometimes hard to tell from texts whether someone likes you romantically or if they’re just being nice. Mei has seen more pick-up likes, flirty texts and friend-zoning conversations than any person has, so she’ll be able to tell you the probability (0-100%) that the person you’re texting is texting you romantically. If she detects a major difference in your personalities, she’ll even give you advice on how to bridge the communication gap.


Use WhatsApp with clients, your boss, co-workers or employees? Mei can tell you how you’re communicating differently and what your strengths are together so you can get the most out of your professional relationship. Depending on which question you ask, she’ll look for the biggest difference in your perceived personalities or find the trait you’re both the most extreme on and give advice on how to work better together. In future releases, Mei will start predicting the likelihood this conversation leads to a deal closing, or even get a job.

How does
it work?

Users of our apps have labelled countless text message conversations. With enough conversations and labels, we’re able to build neural network models to look at the patterns of words and other features in your text conversation.  In the case of a romantic relationship, Mei uses a model to see how much your conversation resembles the romantic or the non-romantic ones in her database. 
We all have different personalities, which can affect how we chat with each other. To give advice on how to communicate better, she first needs to understand the differences in personalities of you and your contact. To do this, she similarly uses neural network models to construct a full 30-dimensional personality profile (based on Big 5 ) of both you and your contact, based on your conversation.
If Mei senses major differences in a particular trait between you and your contact, she’ll offer some tips on how to bridge the potential communication gab. For example, if they seem more adventurous than you, Mei will suggest you to try new things together. Or if they seem like the rebel-type, she’ll suggest you to think outside the box. Alternatively, sometimes  both of you may have a strong personality trait. For professional relationships, this can sometimes be used to your advantage as a team, so she will highlight these traits if you ask for your strength together.
Even with our systems analyzing your messages, we understand you want to keep them private and your privacy is our highest concern. The identities of our users are protected and the messages encrypted.

Most frequent questions and answers

This initial version of our iOS app has only one function: for our AI, Mei, to analyze a WhatsApp conversation, and tell you the probability (0-100%) that the contact is romantic interested in you.  Mei is also able to build a personality profile of you and of that contact, based on the words and emojis each of you used in the conversation.  This is an assessment based on how each of you come across when communicating with one another.  If she perceives a major difference in a personality trait, she will offer you advice on how to best communicate with this contact.

Yes, we already do it for text (SMS/MMS) messages, but only on Android. Apple does not allow 3rd parties to access text messages (iMessage) on iOS phones.  Our Android app does everything that our iOS app does, with the added benefit of being the user’s default texting app (so you can get real-time analysis as you text!). 

As far as other messaging platforms, we will offer it if platforms allow an easy way to export the conversation history the same way WhatsApp has enabled it.  We believe messaging app users have a right to take their data and conversations off of one platform and put them onto another.

This iOS app is only the first iteration of Mei on iOS. Soon we will incorporate the ability to message people via Mei and bring all the personality analysis features we have on our Android app, including the full range of AI intelligence, polling and advanced messaging features such as automatic folders, custom labels, scheduling messages and bulk messaging. 

Like WhatsApp, we’ll even make it possible to export the conversations you have on Mei so that you can have your conversations on the messaging platform of your choice.

At the moment we require at least 1,000 words from the contact. In future iterations, we will reduce this requirement.  Please note that the fewer the words, the less confident the AI is in the analysis.

We take security and your privacy very seriously. We require that you log in with your phone number so we can verify the data you upload to us is tied, in our systems, to a phone number you own.  We do this for privacy and security reasons, namely so that someone who doesn’t own that phone number can’t retrieve any information from what you shared with us. 

Once your data is in our systems, it is encrypted. Furthermore, we make it easy for you to delete information in our systems from within the app.  You can delete a single conversation by swiping it left or delete your whole account from the menu. 

We have no plans to sell your data. We believe data is valuable, especially for developing AI and applications like this.  The data helps us to build our systems and refine our algorithms to become more and more accurate.  There we use the credit system to not only manage usage of our AI but also to reward users for sharing data with us.  On our iOS app, you will need to purchase credits to get information from our AI.  Once you have these credits, you will be part of the same credit ecosystem as our Android app users.  In future iterations of Mei on iOS, these credits may be used to purchase other analysis we introduce and you will even have the ability to earn credits by sharing data.
