I've been playing with this for a almost a few months (I'm rrhoover in the app). Similar to @bjnovak, @devwastaken and co's new app, Kiyo, Jotdown doesn't have public followers, likes, and other vanity metrics that can influence promotional/competitive behaviors. It feels more like a public diary. @zachbatteer you recently added channels. What's next?
@rrhoover Hey! After building private channels with friends, we’ve quickly realized that we need to allow for the option to have them be public and discoverable. We _think_ there could be something in connecting people over a particular shared interest or topic, but also realize that in order to maintain a high quality, you’d have to create a system that incentives good behavior and drives out the trolls. So, that’s something that we’ve been thinking long and hard about trying to solve :)
Any reason you would launch a product on ProductHunt and have only a blank "contact us" page with an email address? Seems contradictory to PH community principles, where we discover available products, or we see some mockups for a coming beta. this is what I see on your site right now:
@picsoung Hey Nicolas, sorry for the confusion. Here's the link to our app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/...?. I should have put that as our official website, as we don't actually have a web product (just an iOS app). Sorry again!
@zachbatteer Working great. Just add a download link on your main website that would do the job ;) Thanks
@picsoung @zachbatteer Thanks for the itunes link. The getjotdown.com page is perhaps just a little bit too minimalist? An app store button there might be a good idea.
@picsoung @frassmith Yup, totally agreed.
@picsoung @zachbatteer @frassmith +1 on that. Please add a app download button on the website. Open the site to see it to be blank and came back to Product Hunt to get the app link.

I really enjoy using this product, not only can I say what's on my mind, but I am not afraid to speak out- unlike Twitter.

Pros:

Non-judgemental atmosphere where you can say what you want

Cons:

Not enough of my friends use it!

Any reasons why one can only sign up with a Canadian or US phone #?
@dylan36032 Ugh, nope :( Sorry about that. We're pushing an update that includes all international numbers very soon.
@zachbatteer hi zach, I was able to get the SMS in France but clicking on the link doesnt launch a download =(

great idea

Pros:

Great way to share thoughts in a private forum

Cons:

Want more people to join!
