Within a month after its launch outside the US, Secret, an app that lets users share anonymous messages, is all set to reach users all over the world.
The app which was only available on the iOS platform is now coming to Android as well with special features. The company has rolled out a few new common features for both platforms.
“We’re getting so much demand that we don’t see the point in holding it back”, said Chrys Bader, Co-founder of Secret.
“It definitely validated the international expansion. It gave us a different perspective: Our users were interacting across countries, and it was very interesting to see.”
The app provides users a text and image sharing screen allowing them to post messages and images anonymously. The contacts are pulled from the address book but the posts and comments are not linked to messages.
Secret for Android has two feeds; one for posts from friends and an “explore” feed to tap into the best posts from the rest of the users worldwide. The Android version was developed by a team led by Sara Haider, who was previously working at Twitter until March when Secret hired her. Sara said that the now Android-only features would be integrated in the iOS version too in future.
The common feature that is simultaneously rolling out in both versions lets users share specific facts about themselves; for instance, users will be asked questions like ‘What’s the last lie that you told?’ which they can answer and forward the same to their friends for them to answer, of course, anonymously.
