Categories for Discovery

Impulse offers four broad categories for every activity imaginable. Pick a category and let others know what you want to do.

Anonymous trolls? Superficial? Nope.

People already try to use apps like Yik Yak and Tinder to meet new people, but these apps have friction. People troll because they are anonymous on Yik Yak, and judge based on appearance with Tinder.

  • Anonymity allows users to troll serious people looking for something.
  • Yik Yak users can't private message each other.
  • Tinder is mainly associated with dating, not friendships.
  • Users on Tinder usually make decisions based on how you look.
  • Both allow local reach and discovery, but Impulse has none of the above.
