A new messaging app, called Sarahah, is taking the app store by storm. First in Saudi Arabia and Egypt now its watering it’s roots in India as well.
The concept of the app is totally different from what we expect from a message/feedback providing apps.
This app allow users to create a profile, and all other users who have logged into or even the anonymous users can share/give their suggestions, feedback to any person who already has been logged in and has posted something.
Today social network are there so we could post our honest reviews, or feedback of something and this was the base for this app too, Sarahah, in Arab has the meaning ‘honesty’ but later it went viral like a messaging app where people, now, give feedback what they like, comment on any post what they like, with no privacy for the post.
In the words of the app itself: “Sarahah helps you in discovering your strengths and areas for improvement by receiving honest feedback from your employees and your friends in a private manner.”
What actually is this App and how to use it:)
Once downloaded, users need to set up an account on the Sarahah app to start receiving messages. They can share their profile with friends or on their other social media accounts so people can send them anonymous messages. Users can also look up people they know if they have the username in a search section of the app.
New messages appear in a feed on the app, which can be favourited, forwarded or deleted. The sender isn’t alerted about any of these actions. Users can also block senders if they receive a message that is offensive or makes them uncomfortable.
One interesting thing about the app is, it got almost equal ratings as best and least recommended that is almost equal number of 5 Stars and same number of 1 stars on the app store.
