Vent Up is a new app where you can express your feelings and frustrations anonymously to others in a supportive environment. In Vent Up, you always have a friend.
When first launching the app, you are prompted to create a user name. Don’t worry, you only have to provide aname, no sensitive data that might trace back to you. Once you have created your user name, you arrive at the main screen. You have a couple options here: search, chats, share, and settings.
Touching search will connect you to a new random person that you can talk to anonymously. You will be placed into a chat with them and can send messages and emoji.
Clicking the list button on the left side, you can go back home, the chats list, or settings. Chats shows all of the chats you are currently in, and you can talk to as many people as you like. Swipe left on any chat to get an option to delete the chat, or delete the chat and block the user.
The settings pane gives options to customize the app experience: My Profile lets you change your username, your real name, and set a profile picture and gender. Buy Features has two in-app purchases, one to remove ads and one for unlimited chats, both priced at a very reasonable 99¢. Then we have options to rate the app in the app store, and read the terms and conditions. Last, we have options to turn on or off background music and sounds.
