There is no shortage of chat programs in the App Store but most of them require you to sign up with a membership. If you want to have fun chatting with interesting people in complete anonymity there just aren’t a lot of options. This can be a little frustrating and that’s why the developers of Pure So Pure So True Pure Chats came up with their completely private chatting platform. With this app you don’t have to reveal any information about yourself at all to start chatting with interesting people around the world. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
Being able to chat with likeminded individuals half a world away is one of the best parts about the online experience and there are plenty of different ways to do this. The developers of Pure So Pure So True Pure Chats have created a completely anonymous chatting experience which allows you to meet some interesting people in the virtual world without any baggage. As with any chat program, you do still have to adhere to certain rules of etiquette but this is to be expected, and is in the best interest of all its users.
Probably the biggest drawback with this app is that you can’t start a chat until someone responds to you – you can’t simply type a message and send it to someone. This can be more than a little frustrating if you don’t get any prompt responses. It would probably be a little more interesting if you could send someone a message and wait for them to respond. As it stands right now the app sends an automatic “hi” on your behalf and you can’t type anything of consequence until someone responds to you. This app will require 6.9 MB of available space on your IOS device.
How it Works
When you use the app for the first time you’ll be prompted to choose a user name and to come up with a simple catch phrase that will attract other likeminded users. You can also choose what type of mood you’re in: soul, casual, or crazy. That’s all there is to it as far as signing up – as advertised you really are anonymous on this platform. It’s definitely refreshing that the apps developer delivers what they promise in this regard.
Starting a chat is pretty simple – you simply tap on the start bubble and you’ll be introduced to another user. The only way to tell if you might be interested in chatting with them is by viewing what type of mood they are in and the catchphrase they have used with their profile. If you aren’t interested in chatting with someone you can tap on the next bubble to move on to the next user. When you find someone you would like to chat with you just tap on the “hi” bubble and wait for them to accept your chat request. Once you’re involved in a chat the interface is pretty straightforward – you type a message in the text box at the bottom of the chat menu and it appears as a text bubble in the chat stream. If you’ve used any kind of chat program before this will have a familiar look and feel. It’s simple but it works well.
If you’re looking for an anonymous way to chat then Pure So Pure So True Pure Chats may just be the app you’re looking for. This is a simple little app that allows you to start chatting with minimal effort. The user interface is pretty decent but it might be a little more interesting if you could start chats with interesting comments instead of just a simple “hi”. Overall it’s not a bad app for finding new people to chat with.
