tbh, i luv u
tbh, or “to be honest” for us older folks, is an iOS app popular with teens that delivers anonymous compliments. The app presents pre-written prompts like “Who has the best smile?” and “Who makes me laugh the hardest?” followed by four of your phone contacts to choose from. Whoever you select gets a notification about how great they are. The app has over 5 million downloads and has sent over a billion tiny love letters since its launch in August. Facebook has acquired tbh to share good vibes with an even larger community. (Source: The Verge)
Name A More Iconic Duo. I’ll wait.
ZTE’s Axon M phone will have dual screens. Open the phone like a book to use two 5.2-inch screens with endless possibilities. Watch Netflix on one screen while answering emails on the other. Expand an article to fill up both screens. Share your phone with a friend and scroll through your half of the phone at your leisure. Play a gaming app like you would on a Nintendo 3DS. The phone launches in November, as if we needed another reason to see double after our Thanksgiving feast! (Source: CNET)
A Better Way to Play
Former Vine founders have a new trivia app called HQ, which feels like a hybrid between Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and Facebook Live. At 3pm and 9pm eastern, thousands of people open the app to answer dozens of multiple choice questions presented by a host. Those who answer wrong stay online to cheer on those still in the running. The winners split the prize money they cash out through PayPal. Think you could answer “What are the Bildungsroman genre of stories about?” I may have to phone a friend with my ZTE Axon M.
