Bubble is an anonymous social app which allows you to chat with anyone else using the app in a circle (Bubble) you create by tapping on a map. The Bubble corresponds to a place, so you can instantly create a chatroom for any location in the world. For example, if you're at your school's library and you need help with Accounting homework, you could chat "Is anyone here in Accounting 1?" at your library, and everyone else that has a Bubble there will receive that message and can respond to you. Messages are auto-deleted after 24 hours. The idea came from the belief that you can use technology to reduce the friction of strangers interacting with each other in a place such as a cafe or bar etc. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks for trying the app!

Bubble is best suited for communities/people who associate with each other in proximity such as a school or apartment. Try to get other people at your school to try the app so you can get to know new people at your school!

Using Bubble is simple. Upon first installing the app you will be taken to a map. The map will automatically center on your location*. Click the compass at the top right to center on you at any time. Then, tap where you are or anywhere on the map and you will create a proximity based chatroom that corresponds to that circle (Bubble) on the map. You will then receive all messages sent to that Bubble and any messages you send will also be sent to that Bubble. Any message you send is anonymous and saved to that location for 24 hours and then auto-deleted.

*Your location is never stored or collected for any reason. It is only used to display where you are on your phone, and notify you when a message is sent at that Bubble.

I like the idea of being able to chat anonymously in a particular place, where I may not know anyone. I can also talk to people I know in a particular location.
