Interesting concept. What is your target group and age? I personally would not let this alter the way I read and respond to messages. It would rather increase the chances of me not answering at all. Who doesn't respect my reply possibilities or preferences won't receive an answer 😄 but maybe I'm just getting old..

Reminds me a bit of something we built a short while ago: Shh! - also on the App Store: https://appsto.re/ca/jV0Fab.i

@janahrend the target audience is aged 15-17 year olds. The idea is just to add a bit of fun when sending messages back and forth. For example, perhaps a user wants to reach out to person who they know of but maybe haven't made initial contact and feel apprehensive to do so for lack of a "reason" for contacting them, Whodini encourages these sort of interactions as it brings along a playfulness with the messages.

"It is this process that truly urges anyone receiving a whodini message to open it ASAP!" Using tech to create even more anxiety in our lives doesn't sit well with me.

Up until now, we have all sent a message to someone and they just take forever to open it. Yes, UP UNTIL NOW! With every single social networking app so far, you have the current process: 1. Sender sends a message to a particular receiver 2. Receiver gets a notification for the message 3. Receiver waits for as long as they like 4. Receiver opens the message 5. Sender can see that Receiver has opened the message The key point to make here is that the receiver has all the power as seen in step 3. Now, Whodini is the only platform that reverses this. With Whodini, the Receiver is urged to open the message as soon as possible, wonder how or why? See the process below 1. Sender sends a message to a particular receiver 2. Receiver gets a notification for the message 3. A 45 second countdown begins (starts when message is sent and notification is received) 4.a If receiver does not open the message before the time is up, the senders identity will be forever unknown! 4.b If the receiver does open it before the time is up, the sender’s identity will be revealed It is this process that truly urges anyone receiving a whodini message to open it ASAP! Thus as a sender, this can be a LOT of fun. A friend not opening your regular message? Send them a Whodini! Want to tell someone you have feeling for them? Leave it up to Whodini. Perhaps they’ll get there in time? Or perhaps they will be left with an anonymous love message

I imagined Woody Allen reading this list because the process sounds truly like neurotic nightmare :)

Would be funny if you text anonymous "I love you" to your secret crush 😄
