Here are the features so far...
Lock Your Messages!
Choose a fun password and a helpful hint to guide your friends and family to unlock your message.
You'll know who took the time to unlock it!
Choose a Photo/Video/Text Hint!
Is your hint something you act out?
Or an object you conveniently had on your desk at the time?
Or maybe it's just a quote that you say enough times that your friends associate it with you.
Either way, you can choose which format your hint is presented!
1 Week Leadership and Auto-Delete
You're only alpha for a week!
During your time in power, you can lock messages, add people to groups, and make announcements through middle messages.
Once leadership changes, the previous chat automatically deletes to make room for the new leader in town.
Yup, you can send texts, photos, and short videos.
No phone numbers, no profiles, you simply choose a username with your email, and you're good to go!
Alpha is still at an early development stage, so a lot of options are still on the table. (For example, if there's enough interest, we do plan to develop Alpha for Android. Let us know if that's something you want!)
We're excited to hear your feedback and implement features that YOU would want to use.
