Ethan app started as a stupid simple messaging app that I created to let anyone in the world text *just* me (ethan) about anything. A lot of people told me they wanted to create a channel where they can receive texts about anything like me, so I decided to open up the app to let anyone create their own hotlines. Read more here:

I'm not sure it's clear to everyone that the Ethan app is run by one single person. He is answering all of the questions on his own, so yes, the response will be a little slow. He has gotten recognized by the Uber Facts twitter account, so questions are piling in. He said if your question is still relevant, you may always bump it so there's a higher chance he'll get to it. I'm impressed with it, and I like how we can get notified whenever Ethan posts a status, so we know when he's on and we can bump our texts, if relevant like he said. Overall, it's successful. It works. I got my question answered in a decent amount of time. If you need an opinion on something right away, though, try asking a friend. Due to all the questions, it really could take awhile for him to get to yours.

App no longer sending notifications!

Please update! The app is no longer sending notifications, I talked to other people on the app and this has been happening for everyone.

Definite potential

I wanted to watch either Blade Runner or 2001: A Space Odyssey. Ethan, here, helped me decide. The response time may need some work, but the potential for a big success is there. Reminds me of a service a guy offers online called brutal honesty or something like that.
