Apps that let users make revelations anonymously are all the rage these days, Whisper and Secret being two of the most popular. While the former is already available for both iOS and Android and has expanded internationally, Secret has been expanding at a relatively slower pace. Only recently it went live in a handful of international markets but still the app is only available for iOS. Though in a few weeks Secret for Android may finally be released.
The app’s founders David Byttow and Chrys Bader-Wechseler told TechCrunch that the Secret app for Android release would take “two or three weeks in the best case,” adding that they are working as hard as they can to get it out the door.
They also revealed that the Android app isn’t going to be a clone of the iOS app. Instead they’ll use it as a testing ground for a couple of new features. It would make sense to do so on the Android app and not disturb the established user experience on iOS. Though they didn’t exactly reveal what those new features are. I guess we’ll have to wait to find out.
Apart from releasing the Android app the team is also working on expanding to even more international markets. The co-founders say that they’re now looking towards non-English speaking countries in an effort to bring in users from different cultures.
