Honk is the new way to make friends and chat in real-time, with messages shown live as you type!
Meet new friends who share your interests and see every message typed in real time, with all the typos, awkward pauses, and emotions you’d normally miss. There's no chat history or send button, so it's all 100% live and in the moment.

Introducing Calls! Yep, it's now possible to call your friends directly in Honk, just like a normal phone call. To call a friend, just go into the chat, tap the microphone icon, and then the call button. Your friend will receive the call even if they're outside the app.
When you're on a call, you can still use Honk and chat with other friends at the same time. (You can even keep the app in the background while chatting!)
Ratings and Reviews
The app is great! Just a little question
I love the app! But it would be cool if there were some things added like group chats or small things like that but this one question that I would like to ask is maybe it would be ok if we can choose genders or maybe we can still have a conversation with people that aren’t exactly like a 91%? I think that I would be nice if that was added because having conversations that actually math with you are cool and all but when I would like to see another person sometimes it says there aren’t people that match with you and it does like a lot and I just thought that maybe I could just ask that tiny favor. But other than that the app is great!
I love the app its such a fun way to talk to people but there are a few issues. When I leave a chat for someone to see and leave and come back later I see that the last few letters of the chat were deleted, this has happened a lot. Also notifications in the app glitch sometimes to where it wont go away, not a huge deal since exiting and opening the app again fixes the issue. Other than the issues I think theres a few things that would make the app more enjoyable. Group chats would be a really great add since only having be able to talk to one person at a time can be limiting. This one might be a stretch but I think adding a little time somewhere on someones message profile when you click them showing their timezone and what time it is for them currently would be a great add since the honk feature can be annoying for someone if its late at night. The person would see that it is late at night for them and not bother them. Adding to this another idea would be to add an ability to create an online status, i.e. "online" "sleeping" "busy" etc. etc. to show if they are busy or not. This being able to be changed by the person.

Thank you for the detailed review! We're so glad you're having fun. We totally hear you on the issues you've mentioned though. We're looking into fixing the bug surrounding the last few letters of chats, as well as improving the notifications. Please keep an eye out for those improvements!
Aside from that, your suggestions are great and super creative. Group chats would definitely be cool, and the idea around timezone is incredibly unique and something we'll be sure to pass onto the team. Statuses are also a great idea, and something we know quite a few people want. We'll continue to improve the app and appreciate all of your feedback, and thanks again for the kind words!
Like a real conversation!
It’s all real time, which is such a cool concept for a texting app. I hate calling people, but if I want a conversation that feels more genuine and personal than normal texting, this is it! I love how easy it is to type something and then just press the button in the bottom right to clear it. I was a bit worried since this is a new app that they wouldn’t have such conveniences, but I was mistaken. I’m also a big fan of magic words! You type something and a flurry of emojis appear. Also love how cute the symbols are for when you honk, and that the sound isn’t annoying! I hate the beeps and rings of normal notifications so this is good! My only problem is that the text bubble gets too full, too fast, and I think the text size should have an option to be lower. Also, I heard that they are working on group chats!?? Which would be really cool, but also pretty chaotic. That’s will probably be part of the fun tho, lol! If they make the text sizes adjustable I’ll make my review a 5! Happy honking

Thanks so much for the amazing review! We definitely understand where you're coming from when it comes to the text bubbles getting full quickly. This is something we're looking into, so please stay tuned! And yes––we're working as hard as we can on group chats. We're a small team, so we appreciate your patience. Thank you!
