I'm not grammar expert but I believe it should be "Chat with people you disagree with" 🤓

@erickbarron86 sounds dumb (and shouldn't be used) but follows the 'don't end with a preposition rule'

This is a really good idea but sometimes talking to fanatic people is like talking to a wall. By the way, congratulations on the release!

@janva255 thanks! Yeah but my guess is fanatic people won't go through the effort of downloading it. Hopefully it'll have more open-minded people than not. For now you can terminate chats. Let me know if you have any suggestions 😄

This is an incredibly powerful idea, and I like the playful feel of the app (makes it feel more like a chat then a confrontation). Really stunning job, guys!! Would love to give better feedback, but y'all gotta show Android some love 😁😁😁

This reminds me of the Monty Python where a man goes in to buy an argument 😄 But seriously, I love all chat products and at a timelike this we've never needed to embrace diverse viewpoints and human discourse more 👍

Hi, I'm Marawan, co-maker of Burst. Our goal is to build an app that connects you to people outside your social filter bubble. It's important to see both sides of the story from people just like you, and to realise that deep down you have more in common than you expected. We'll be here all day to answer any questions you may have. This is our first big app and any feedback is appreciated. 😄

@marawan_1997 @arunsathiya Thanks, Arun. We have a rough Android version but since we're only two people working on this we decided to focus on iOS for the time being. We're planning to start working on the Android version soon though. 🚀
