• Upcoming 'Secret' Update to Bring Major Changes



    Recent banned social networking app in Brazil, Secret, received a major update in the U.S. recently on its Android devices. The iOS updates are expected to launch sometime in the next couple of days. Apparently, the changes are to prevent unwanted behaviors, possibly directing towards attacks that are anonymous. Older images can no longer be uploaded and access to saved content in the photo library is no longer allowed. For a more friendly experience, Flickr integration will be a part of the new features in the update, with more well-rounded background images.

    Another major change in the updated Secret app is the use of names in posts. According to Secret,

    We've learned that the vast majority of great secrets don't have names in them, and the few that do usually aren't productive and can even be harmful. We've changed our position on the use of real names and, in addition to discouraging their use, we're actively blocking posts containing names of private individuals whenever possible. We will invest heavily here to make sure the system improves over time.

    Last but not least, a polling feature has been added in the new update. A two-option Yes or No poll will be incorporated for feedback and advice purposes. According to Secret, they envision this option to be a powerful tool for feedback close to real-time. Secret is a 16.6MB free download from Apple's App Store.

      Agreed. They do keep older versions for those running on older iOSs, but you can't expect devs to write new software for outdated iOSs.
      Upgrade or die.
