    Pros: 

    Beautifully designed. Intelligent use of social dynamics that incentivizes word of mouth spread. Focus on positivity.

    Cons: 

    0 real world utility beyond the surface level gimmick.

    It's popular among the teens because it provides a quick outlet to anonymously put friends in the spotlight in a gamified fashion. Anonymous chatter apps are fun toys, but are destined to fail or be replaced by the next one to pop up. tbh lacks utility beyond an anonymous toy (read: no redeeming qualities). The app is beautiful and the positive approach is noble, but I predict it will drop off in a similar fashion to Yo, Down to Lunch, or Brighten because it doesn't actually "do" anything for the consumer other than briefly scratch their social itch.

    Chris Travers has used this product for one day.

    Pros: 

    Amazing

    Cons: 

    I found what a nice concept App.

    But I'm so bad cas I can't use it in japan.

    I have a question.

    I read the aritcle it said like that.

    > TBH first launched at a single high school in Georgia in August, where 40 percent of the student body downloaded the app on the first day. The next day, they expanded the app to three more schools in the area to the same results.

    Is it right?

    And why this app growth in a day?

    Please tell me some growth tips.

    Shosei Yamaguchi has never used this product.

One of my favorite parts of this app is that every question has a positive / funny vibe to it. Every other anonymous app could be used for bullying, but this one can't.

@besvinick that's what the app says it does ! 🙄
Adam Besvinick@besvinick · VC at Anchorage Capital
@vineetdevaiah sure, but I've seen anonymous apps that tout that experience and are unable to maintain that atmosphere because the features allow for trolling
Vineet Devaiah @vineetdevaiah · CEO and Founder
@besvinick ok, it just felt like u had not used the app for more than a couple of minutes but wanted to post a quick review to product hunt because #facetime but I was wrong. Thanks for the comment 👍🏼

@vineetdevaiah @besvinick 💎 Most likely to post the 1st Product Hunt comment

@besvinick this is still the comment I went looking for to back up their claims. When I read that the app had only a positive vibe I did not believe it for a second and didn't understand the premise. My automatic response was "Yeah, right. Okay, sure" while scenes of the Black Mirror episode where you rate people played through my mind.

This app has remained under the radar in the tech world until recently. It's currently #1 in the App Store (free, U.S.). I'm not too surprised to see it blowing up among the younger audience. Anonymous apps often drive a ton of engagement through its mystery and polls are an effective way to solicit responses and engagement.

Its not available in my country.

I can see how this might become highly popular with tons of engagement. Putting my grumpy old guy hat on and I'll admit I'm happy these didn't exist when I was a teenager. I can foresee long discussions trying to get my kids to focus on important things instead of being convinced they're no good because some other kid wins more popularity contests in an app.

@brunomorency my thoughts exactly. While there may be no bullying and outright maliciousness, vanity metrics + teens = recipe for depression, which is quite ironic.
Stephanie Kampendonk@ihatedotpink · PR Officer
@wuss what about the kids receiving dozens of votes and telling other kids in the classroom how popular they are? don't you think that could make the not so famous kids jealous, which indeed could be a recipe for depressions? 🤔

Why are you opting to remain anonymous, @thetbhapp? Can we play 20 questions? 🤔
