SayHenlo

Messaging without distractions

SayHenlo is a messaging platform that I built during the #24hrstartup challenge to combat conversation overload. You can only send users 1 message, and can’t send another until they respond to your last one.

Hey @daltonedwards , Congrats! First of all seems very good app to chat with stranger. I tried with 6 different users but no one is responding back. Hope that is not any bug :)

@kaushal_im when you hit the “shuffle” button it initiates a conversation with a random user, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they are online (they might respond when they login). If a red beating heart shows on chat page it means both users are present in the chat.

@daltonedwards Ohh, It seems like I tried with all offline users. 😃

@kaushal_im SayHenlo is new so that’s very likely to happen. I recommend inviting some friends 🤓

Looks interesting! Is there a way to save selected messages if they have e.g. directions or an address?

@zelena The way the platform works I permanently delete somebody’s last sent message whenever they send another, so to answer your question as of right now the functionality you mentioned doesn’t exist.

@zelena if you wanna save a message don’t respond to them, and they won’t be able to reply. Essentially saving their last message to you indefinitely.

This is such a weird product it might be a good idea 😂

Jason Zhengcode for fun
Maybe "shuffle" can focus on online user?

@jun_zheng83 right now there isn’t enough users for that to be feasible, but someday

@oiv what’s scary?

@daltonedwards That I can send one message only. Usually, I send a few messages when I start a conversation. The first one is "Hi" all the time. 😁 Need to change my messaging habits to use it 😅
