Thanks again to Robleh for hunting us. Kori originally had an idea for this about a year ago and when he first told me about it I thought it was one of the most unique and cool ideas I had ever heard. We knew we would build it one day, but a few months ago the timing had never felt better with the way everything is going on in the world right now. We thought now was the perfect time to have an open platform where you can speak your mind without the fear of people harassing you. By pixellating your face and modifying your voice, we hope we've given people a tool to express themselves and how they feel like never before.

I'm really looking forward to seeing some very interesting discussions happening on this app that we never would have seen before if the person was too scared to have their thoughts attached to their real identity. Super excited to see how you all use Dusk and if you have any questions, comments, or feedback we are always active both on here and on Twitter.

Cheers and thanks.

PS. This isn't just an iPhone app. It has a unique design for iPad which is awesome, and we even have a tvOS version that you can download for your Apple TV as well.

This was an awesome app to build we had a ton of fun but it was really freaking hard at the same time, I have an amazing team (Mitchell Porter and Allen Hurst). We... Show More

Reminds me of @alexroche's RealTalk. Curious how you've seen people use this so far, @koridhandy and @_mitchellporter.
