I Deleted Secret

yeah seems right
Be the change you want to something in the something, right? Last night, a friend deleted Secret, the new app for… sharing secrets and I realized: oh, I could do that as well! These apps do not own me! (Yet.)

It's a fascinating experiment, and I'm curious about where it will go. But. Opening Secret was like walking onto a trading floor where a pack of goons were desperately displaying the contents of their wallets and/or underwear. It was like carrying a portal to a heinous world of male status anxiety. So much equity terror, so many tepid sexual fantasies unfulfilled. In the future, if I need someone to take a toxic dump in my phone I'll just unblock all those jerks on Twitter.

"It was like carrying a portal to a heinous world of male status anxiety."

This portal, does it work in both directions? I'd like to use it to jump the other way, please.

You clearly just wanted to show off that you had TWENTY EIGHT missed phone calls, Mr. Popular

why is the iTunes remote app under Navigation?

Is there any usage of GroupMe outside of South by Southwest?

So many social media apps just sitting there on the home screen, with so much room available in Dumb.

Still not charging your phone until it's in the red, I see.

Whole lotta app-shaming going on here.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to get an intern to download Secret so I can see how Young Secret is different from Old Secret.

Wish we could trade; I'm deleting it cause it was all "love my hubby" and Sam Biddle's name strung DESU-like down the infinite scroll.

For a depressing weekend I tried Whisper. Do not try Whisper. It's Craigslist run by 9GAG.
