Rumr is a new messaging app that allows you to chat anonymously in with friends. Users can chat anonymously and private in real-time in conversations that prevent your identity from being revealed.
The startup describes the app as being like ‘having a conversation with the lights off’. Which depending on how you look at it, could be pretty accurate. When chatting with friends with the lights off, you can still hear their voice and know who it is.
Similarly it may not be too difficult to predict which friends are who in the context of messaging if you have picked up on what words they use, how they format their texts, or which abbreviations they use in texts.
When you join a chat in rumor you are assigned a colored chat bubble which will serve as your only identification. Your color is never shared and you can only see messages if you are a member of the chat.
In each chat you can see the list of members so you always know who is in it and can find friends by adding their username or through your address book.
Rumr launched today for free and is available for download on iOS and Android.
