Nicer link display for popular domains
I frequently send unsolicited and questionable photos of myself to work colleagues. This app on the face of it seems perfect for my uses. However, the crèche is in our office so I would be worried about kids with the chirp app open since it doesn't discriminate between users. And there's a Nunnery right next door so I would have to keep the windows closed in summer. Especially during Evensong.
Seriously, how do you know who is receiving your message other than the intended recipient? It's a nice idea but seems very restricted in practise.
Quick and easy
I thought this app was great for transferring photos and notes. Yes, you may need an internet connection but you need that for all but bluetooth too and it's dodgy depending on what app you use. This is far better than emailing to yourself or cloud sharing just to get from one device to the other. Keep up the good work.
Sent and received via Internet
The description makes out that the files are sent and received by an encoded sound, but what really happens is your picture is uploaded to the Chirp server and the sound represents the uploaded file for the receiver to download it from them. Still clever but Internet connection is required, so it is not a new way to share things and Chirp store every picture you send.
