I just got excited about an app. Wait, I’m not sure you realize how significant this is because I’m usually slamming them as a complete waste of time. Recho is different. It allows you to leave audio messages that can only be listened to when other users are at the location you recorded the message at. The possibilities are pretty endless: city guides with insider tips, stories, jokes, music, love notes (don’t worry, there’s a privacy setting so you’re not professing your love to some creepy dude).
So far I haven’t stumbled across any messages in my daily routine, but I did leave a message right outside the Mission library branch in San Francisco. I’m all about apps that inspire us to get creative and interact with strangers.
