Wynd lets you create a virtual balloon, attach a message and launch it into air for other Wynd users to find.
Search for nearby balloons, grab them and add to the tale. Track how far your balloons have traveled and who found them. You never know how your story will grow or where it will land next!
(note: Enabling location services is necessary for the majority of the app features. We need to know where you are to help you find balloons!)
Wynd is based on an experience we had as kids. Our local public library had an event where we launched balloons into the air with self-addressed postcards attached. The hope was to have someone find the balloon and mail it back with a short message. It was fun to see how far they went and who found them.
Wynd is a digital version of that experience. We hope you enjoy it!

This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.
This version adds notifications to alert you when a new balloon is spotted nearby or another Wynd user has added a new postcard to one of your balloons. Just create a new balloon and you will get asked if you want to turn on notifications. Never miss out an unfolding tale!
We've also fixed a minor bug when smiling at a postcard.
Ratings and Reviews
App Login Broken
As of the date of this review (May 2018), this app is broken. The FB login you’re required to do doesn’t work, thus, this app is unusable. Too bad because it sounded fun!
Developer Response ,
Hi we apologize for the FB login issue you had. Facebook has been beefing up security in their login process and one such change caused some users to not be able to log into the app. We have fixed that issue so you should now be able to sign in properly. Sorry for the inconvenience.
It's nice to see a novel messaging app. Some of the stories that develop as balloons move around the country are pretty hilarious. This app is part messaging, part story sharing, and part telephone game. Once there are more people using it and the interface is refined a bit, I can see this app being a big deal.
I like to use the app to launch a balloon from different places I travel to. It's cool to see who finds them and what they say. I wish there was a way though to follow a balloon without adding to it.
