RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Which brings us to our last word in business: introvert's paradise.

The Internet is supposed to be about connecting with people, but sometimes you just want to be left alone. Well, there's an app for that. Meet Cloak.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Cloak pays attention to your friends' geolocations and lets you know if they're nearby. That way you can avoid your enemies - like your ex's or maybe even your friends, if you want to.

MONTAGNE: Which sometimes, you know, you don't see everybody everyplace, right? I guess.

GREENE: I guess not.

(LAUGHTER)

GREENE: Renee, I always want to know when you'll be around.

MONTAGNE: Oh, David.

GREENE: That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.

MONTAGNE: And I'm Renee Montagne. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
