A new privacy app is being sold on its anonymous text functionality, allowing users to issue messages directly to people in their contact lists without being identified to the recipient.
Truth for iOS is based on Apple’s default Messaging app and requires registration and acquiescence to a raft of permission requests before the fun can begin.
Each message is automatically presaged with the words ‘The truth is…’ part of the app’s proposed gimmick of stimulating unabashed honesty courtesy of the cloak and dagger approach.
Working both with people who’ve installed Truth and those who haven’t the sender will be given a random San Francisco based number to confuse the recipient with.
Intended as a tool for sharing flirtatious messages the app is hoping to avoid becoming a platform for bullying and otherwise freaking out those on the receiving end.
