Chance (by just.me)
By just.me Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app is for meeting new friends from around the world. It will introduce you to random strangers. You decide whether to chat with them or not.
You just tap take a chance, and you will be chatting with somebody new. If you like them you can get to know them, exchange pictures, and texts. If not you can just tap next.
Take a chance — because even your best friend was once a stranger.
P. S. Just.me Inc is now a fully fledged app development studio. The initial app - just.me - has been retired. For those who loved it, please try “Chance". It is the first of several apps that will re-produce the best features of just.me in stand alone apps.
What's New in Version 3.0.2
— Live avatars: your selfie is taken with every message you send, and is used as your avatar.
(You can turn it off by tapping on it.)
— You will now see which country your conversation partner is from.
— Number of stability improvements.
— New look and new icon
Nice idea but too simple and not enough people
This is a nice idea (though not exactly new), but it's missing some features. The main one is being able to reconnect with someone. Sure you can exchange emails in the chat, but what if you get disconnected beforehand (which happened to me before this latest update)? Or what if you're not comfortable yet giving it out but still interested in talking to the person? There needs to be a favorites list. Also multiple conversations would be nice. Some text shortcuts would be nice too since you often end up saying the same things at the beginning of every conversation.
[update] Now that I've tried it for a few times, I have even less interest - it's just filled with guys trying to hit up girls. I'm a guy, and when they find out (and it's their first question after saying hi), they immediately leave the conversation without even a "bye". And I don't even think there are many people using the app. Last night I kept getting matched up with the same guy - we were apparently the only two on the service!
[update 2] Now the app takes your pic when you chat. Of course "your pic" is usually a shot of someone's ceiling, lol. C'mon guys, you really think doing auto pix is going to actually work? Cuz it's real hard to point your phone away from your face. :p And it's still all guys on the hunt...
This app needs an update terribly. It reconnects you with the same person over and over and over again. And when YOU flag someone the app flags you back. I literally have to exit out of the app, kill it, and then load it again to find someone new. Ridiculously annoying. So done.
I think the review below said it correctly: there's the same guy, the only guy, the creepy one on this app. No one else. I'm wondering what the guy looks like? Who would use this app?
