Review Secret

Jay Feldman
6.3Good
Unique concept, simple interface, easy to use
Boring, juvenile, pointless
Secret for Android is moderately interesting. The concept is simple: anonymously share a deep dark secret with the world, and see what people have to say about it. It’s a little naughty and a tad scandalous, but ultimately, it’s about as juvenile as passing notes to your friends in class and snickering behind the teacher’s back.
Secret has a very minimalist and clean layout. It’s just tiles with text on them, and you flick and swipe to sift through the monotony to occasionally find a secret that’s actually worthwhile. There’s plenty of snickering fools who are just posting stupid crap and calling it humor. But rarely is any of it funny or even mildly interesting. Some people literally just post proverbs, which is missing the entire point.
The premise of sharing deep dark secrets is actually interesting. There’s a voyeuristic element to it, and the credibility of the app hinges upon the user. Post real secrets that you’re struggling with, and you've got something here. The problem is, most of the entries come across as 12 year old pranksters that want to see something off color and stupid tossed in front of an audience just for a reaction. The entries are peppered with the obligatory ads, with the hopes that someone will intentionally, or accidentally, click on them to earn the app some coin. In and of itself, that would be fine, if there were some actual worthwhile content to begin with.
This app is only as good as its users. As it is, most of it is just childish and dumb. And the app constantly nags you to verify your identity with a phone number; probably because they want the ability to track down any nut jobs that post a secret manifesto and spill their plans to commit some heinous crime. This app is a gruesome headline waiting to happen.
Secret is interesting in theory, but at the end of the day, the entries read more like a bad chain letter. If this stuff showed up in my email, I’d flag it as spam. The concept shows genuine promise, but that’s about it. Just another outlet for people to over-share and say dumb things. We already have that, it's called the internet.
