A classmate from college built this app. I think it's a great idea and very well designed app and introduces a new concept of communication and social media. What do you all think?



I think it's a good first shot. I'm wondering what's going to happen to a completely anonymous forum as it grows. Will it devolved into /b-like behavior or will it find a way to rise above.


I'm hoping that the theme, some new features, and me keeping an eye on spammy content will make it rise above. I'm wondering just as much as you, though!


I am having fun with it, and it doesn't seem to be devolving.

Side note: I really want an iPad version. The interface doesn't even need to change at all, with the possible exception of making the airplanes a little bigger. I run it in 2x mode, but font rendering is massively ugly.


If postsecret.com is anything to go by it could be sweet. Pity it's an app and not simply HTML5 though, I'll never see it.


Would be cool if the paper airplanes could be customized -- there's lots of ways to fold them, after all!


Yep. Planned and prioritized :)


meh on ipad. portrait mode only.


I want to bring Airendipity to iPad, but atm it's iPhone-only for the time-constraint reasons I mentioned above. I think iPad would be a great opportunity to stretch out a bit and carry a bit of the whimsical side a little further.


right on.. hope you find the time. great job btw.

you've got the stickiness down - I keep going back in!
