App Review; Drift Bottle

This is a one-of-a-kind app. It's pretty addictive, and you sometimes find yourself drowsing in the beach for hours at a time(which is a bit of an exaggeration, but it's addictive nonetheless). This app lets you talk to strangers. (without revealing your personal info, of course)
As its name suggests, it's a "a bottle with a message in it reaches someone far away" situation app, but it does that instantly.You write anything you want, put it in a bottle, and then throwing with a cool UI that lets you flick the bottle with your thumb, and the animation's great. It instantly reaches someone else using the app at that time, and that person can reply to the bottle and then you have an instant e-pal. It sort of becomes like a chat conversation.
Still, there's this fact- about 1-third of the bottle that reaches you is weird(explicit). But a new feature was added to this app a few weeks ago, which is the blacklist. If you put someone to it, you won't get bottles from that guy anymore.
I think this app is really cool, and it's worth the buck.(there's a free version too.)

  1. It's too bad it's got so many obsenities. I bet you're blacklisting people perennially.
