The app could’ve had potential as a fun thing to do with your friends - but I have a few comments:

1) the app is incredibly buggy. Poll percentages glitch up and down, the “stories” esque feature is really poorly designed (almost looks like the developer just used basic templates and put no thought into user experience), and the In app map simply does not work. In addition, there is a privacy feature which limits who can see your responses - but if you go on to other polls you can then see that person’s response ? What’s the purpose of this feature then?

2) as others have pointed out, there is almost zero moderation in terms of what is allowed to be posted. I’m aware that other apps also allow distasteful posts with little recourse but this is on another level. Simply put, it feels like it’s an app where people who don’t feel comfortable voicing their hurtful opinions on larger platforms can come and feel validated by others also doing the same. This is all done under the guise of “facilitating discussions”, but 8/10 polls I’ve seen seem like it’s just people looking for validation. Lastly, why is there a dating feature? It seems like the direction of this is all over the place.

Overall it could have been interesting if this was just an app where you can ask fun questions and have your friends respond - but the poor development of the app and the content just make it feel really mediocre.

Data mining with no actual utility

This is the story of how one obscure comedian tricked an entire city into mining data for third party companies. The app itself is based on answering mindless polls with little to no meaningful interaction. The only comments with substance are written by users who are encouraged by the creators of the app to mindlessly share opinions without regard to facts or any sense of personal accountability. What a great idea! Congrats everyone involved!
