An anonymous app for positive feedback just reached the top of the App Store - here's how to use it
A new app called tbh is hoping to change that - and it just reached the top of the App Store's free apps chart.
Tbh, which is an acronym for "To be honest," bills itself as "the only anonymous app with positive vibes."The app isn't a standard messaging app like Yik Yak or Sarahah, though: Instead, users are presented with a series of prompts about their friends like, "Should DJ every party" or "Hotter than the sun" and four options for friends that best fit that description.
Tbh is designed for users 13 and up, and allows those who sign up to select their school and grade level. But you can still use tbh if you're in college or have already graduated.
The name of the app follows a similar trend among teens who use the phrase "tbh" on Instagram to say something nice about their friends. A tbh is used almost like a form of Instagram currency, since you can trade a tbh for a like on one of your photos. Whether or not the app's name was inspired by that, tbh bears a lot of similarities to the trend.
Here's how the app works:
