What’s worse is that Meow Chat has ‘gamified’ attention on the app, offering users a Meow Chat score that doles out points when their pictures get ‘favourited’ or when they invite all their Facebook friends to install Meow Chat.
This last mechanism is probably why the app has gotten so popular so suddenly, with users spamming each other to earn ‘Meow Points’.
The app also offers the chance to browse profiles in your area, and judging by the short bios some users have written (“no nudes plz”; “don’t message me if your [sic] 50”) this feature can be a magnet for creeps.
Moreover, you can ask questions online anonymously on any topic and receive answers from the experienced community. Serious writers will undoubtedly be frustrated by the lack of features, but for notes and short blog entries, Paragraphs proves to be a worthy client.
Text with the ones you like and block the ones you don't. One of the newest entries in an increasingly crowded field, the very plain text editor marries minimalism with meticulousness, carving out a very nice concept built around a a clean, smart workspace.
Ultimately, my decision came down to typeface preference, but I appreciated the care given to each option, with particular attention paid to weight, spacing and kerning. I was a little bit slow and offered with it at first because what the heck do you talk about.?
But as I continue to use the app and talk with more people and it became less awkward and more fun if the conversation with one person dies that's OK just Move On and chat with somebody else.
