Magic words are the interesting differentiator here — kind of like slash commands in Slack or @mentions in Telegram/HipChat.
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@chrismessina I downloaded this last night after seeing it on @dtrihn's Snapchat. Curious to play with it. Love the branding. 🍑

Nick Hallam@nhallam · Product strategy and design
@rrhoover @chrismessina really great execution on the design :) love it
Adam Marx@adammarx13 · Freelance writer/editor and music addict
@rrhoover @chrismessina just downloaded it too. i find the branding more curious than anything, but in a quirky kind of way i'm interested to test out :D now @adammarx13 on peach
Dave Craige@davecraige · CEO -
@chrismessina nice hunt Chris
高手놀리밑™@nolim1t · technologist. I code. digital nomad.
Interesting app. Hopefully there will be some third party support for the magic words which seems to be a differentiator
Sar Haribhakti@sarthakgh · Learning
@chrismessina I think its a combination of Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and Slack. 🍑 Leverages trending social behaviors from various apps and packages them into a new product. My username on 🍑 is sarthakgh. 🤗
Hunter Gray@huntergray · Founder, Klutch
@chrismessina So why not just use Slash for iMessage? I don't understand all these "new apps" that copy functionality of existing products.
Andy Mauro@andymauro · CEO
@chrismessina agree, and the more general idea that a UI can update in response to background NLP is ripe with possibility...
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
Interesting. This is by the team that made Byte, which launched only 4 months ago. Are you working on both apps, @dhof? Super curious to learn more. EDIT: I'm rrhoover 🍑 and here's my first post:

Cat Noone@imcatnoone · Founder & CEO, Iris
Absolutely love the concept of and possibilities that come with magic words. Huge differentiator to every other social platform. Not to mention the super friendly copy and ease of use. Only downside is that I can't use social networks to find friends and it also isn't letting me scan my address book. Regardless, I'm looking forward to continuing using it and seeing how it fits into my day to day with friends. Oh and I claimed the username @cat — what a score! That has never happened as far as I can recall unless it was my own product. Add me! 🎉
Mike Sun@mikesun
@imcatnoone you should be able to scan your address book for friends... are you having issues with it? hit us up at
Cat Noone@imcatnoone · Founder & CEO, Iris
@mikesun Yes 😿 Doing so now. Thanks, Mike! ·
@imcatnoone same here! @esquimal is rarely available :-)
Pulkit Agrawal@_pulkitagrawal · CEO @trychameleon for user onboarding
@imcatnoone Love the onboarding - guides you through stepwise and you can act on everything that you get taught. Permissions are done well, except the push notifications - which comes up straight away without warning (sigh, why do you people still do this?) but otherwise good example to review for other folks looking to improve their user onboarding.
Tiffany Zhong@tzhongg · something new! formerly @ProductHunt
I compare Peach to status updates people used to make on Facebook (and how some people use Twitter). Interesting product, not much value proposition yet but it's fun to update your friends and keep track of what you do. Can't wait to see what their next steps are! Also add me, I'm @tiff
Cat Noone@imcatnoone · Founder & CEO, Iris
@tzhongg thought the same thing at first, but like I said in my comment above the magic words are a big one. I definitely see a decent amount of possibilities. Like most (new) social networks, I'm a bit iffy but enjoying this so far. Ultimately depends on how active my network is on it which will determine my usage.
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@imcatnoone @tzhongg +1 as well. Reminds me of AIM status updates. Nostalgia.
Jaime Macias@jmacias · Product @boost.
@rrhoover @tzhongg seems like every product is trying to recreate AIM from 99/2000 era. Peach definitely has something going. This start reminds me of the earliest days of Path.
@rrhoover @tzhongg Amazing how "status updates" are not associated with FB/Twitter anymore!
Adam O'Kane@adamokane · product strategist & writer
@jmacias @tzhongg I thought I had an original thought with the AIM thing, but then I saw this! ;)
Sar Haribhakti@sarthakgh · Learning
@imcatnoone @tiffany_hardin I do not think it will find a place on our home screen as a new social app. I believe it will have to replace a bunch of trending apps to carve a niche for itself. Its capitalizing on mainstream behaviors/features of various other apps. Takes the sliding interface from Snapchat and Spontaneity from Twitter. Facilitates both short and long form content. Makes the Slack commands much better. Has an Instagram-like feel for pic sharing/uploading. It has some obvious pain points like lack of integrations with FB, discovery issue, fake accounts etc. I believe its probably on their short term roadmap. I really like the concept. Very thoughtful and its kind of breaking out of the bay area which is known for false positives whenever a new thing pops up. Enough ranting. I write a lot about 🍑 on 🍑. Username - @sarthakgh 😄😄
Damon Nam@nomadman
@tzhongg @rrhoover +1 I suspect Dom and team have some interesting features up their sleeves for the future. In the meantime, I completely agree with the consensus. Limited value now; however, I can definitely see some potential. Especially if they integrate some AI and NLU. My Peach 🍑: @damonnam
Stowe Boyd@stoweboyd · futurist, researcher, iconclast
@rrhoover @tzhongg Remember Buddygopher for AIM?
Sergei Kostevitch@setrino_sir · eReader Prestigio PM
@tzhongg Well, we got one more social network...
Adrian Le Bas@adrianleb · UX & Front-end Freesoul
Looks cool 😄 claimed my dream username @ad ,also my first choice of gif went really well with the follow up onboarding copy...having problems finding friends with my address book, I have a non us phone number and everytime trying to add it when requested I get a "something went wrong" kind of error 😟
LF@lfsalazar · Developer / Designer
@adrianleb I'm having the same error
Levent Ali@lebreeze · Co-Founder, Brapp

Gus Ferguson@saliencegus · Co-founder and Partner at Salience HQ

Emil Stahl@emilstahl · Partner

Emil Stahl@emilstahl · Partner
@adrianleb They have a beta version with a fix. I just got access and it works! I guess you can join the beta too if you contact the Peach team at 📧😊
