What's New

Version 3.3.2

Introducing the Cloakroom Mesh! Using your iPhone's close-range radio capabilities, the Mesh lets you trade text messages with your colleagues without leaving any digital footprints behind. Your Mesh communications are never transmitted over the Internet, and they never touch a hard drive. In fact, you don't even need to be online to chat in the Mesh.

Tap the new pulsing radar button to see who's nearby and what they are saying. When the radar changes from blue to red, it means a new colleague or a new message is waiting for you in the Mesh.

The Mesh only works when Cloakroom is open, and only when WiFi and/or Bluetooth are enabled.

Version 3.3.2 fixes some minor bugs caught during live testing in Longworth Cafeteria.

Ratings and Reviews

fun and informative


ever wonder what your fellow staffers think about that weird thing you do? This is the place to ask. It's all over the place to ask what people think of the bill your boss is working on, the way your interns are behaving, or people who ride the elevator only one floor.

More than Yik Yak for the Hill

Intern No More

This app is more than just a source for insider jokes and gossip (of which there is an abundance). I've received competent and much needed advice, encouragement, and feedback concerning about Hill career and the occasional uncertainty that comes with the territory from fellow Cloakroomers on several occasions.

Built a tight community with the people you work with


Great place to get job advice, read policy debates amongst staffers and just Hill things! Can't wait to hear and share opinions with people I work with everyday!
