6cret is now out for Windows Phone. 6cret is a new app from Windows Phone developer Rudy Huyn and is a client for infamous app Secret. We've known for a few weeks that Rudy was working on a Secret client for Windows Phone. Not familiar with Secret? It's a very popular app on Android and iOS where users can leave anonymous messages to their circle of friends.
Here's what you can do with 6cret:
- Secret posts come from friends, but you won't know which one.
- Write back anonymously.
- When people love your secret, it spreads to their friends and can travel around the world.
- Say what you're really thinking and be yourself.
6cret allows you to post anonymous messages with friends, co-workers and people nearby. It's taking a bit of flak in the media lately for allowing school children to anonymous bully classmates. But with most things, it's a tool and how you use that tool is ultimately up to you.
6cret is now available for free in the Windows Phone Store. There are ads, but you can remove them via an in-app purchase of $1.29. The actual Secret app was just launched earlier this year, so it's good to see an option for those on Windows Phone. Take it for a spin and let us know what you think!
Update: Rudy has just tweeted that the app has been unpublished so he can fix a Facebook login bug. We'll let you know when the app is back up.
Update 2: Looks like the app has been republished. You'll find 6cret in the Windows Phone Store with an update that fixes the Facebook login bug! Enjoy!
