Hey PH, thanks for checking out our new app, Whale. We've been building it for the past couple months and we are excited to share it with the world.

The point of Whale is to solve my own problems with video Q&A. I've been giving entrepreneurship / startup / life advice on Snapchat for the past year as a way to give back to the community (and also pass the time while doing cardio on my exercise bike). I love answering questions with video -- it can be way easier than writing out a response. But there have been a few problems with the Snapchat format: I get the same questions over and over, there's no library of answers and often times people miss the window to ask me something and their message gets lost in the flood.

At the same time, I've also noticed through Twitch and observing other platforms that video influencers want more ways they can make money directly from their fans and community. We think Q&A might be a good way: almost every type of influencer gets lots of questions from their fan base.

We'd love for you to try Whale out and let us know what you think.

I've been playing with @justinkan, @ranidu, and team’s newest app for the past ~week. It's like they've productized @justinkan's Q&A-style Snapchat stories. The team's been working on music-related projects for the past ~few years, including The Drop. What's the backstory on Whale?
