Secret expanding its anonymous messaging to Android and new global markets

Secret iPhone

Secret is a popular iOS app that lets you share things with others without having your name added to whatever is published. Today's news is not only has the service managed to pull off $10 million in funding, but we'll be seeing an Android app released in the future as well as more markets added to the supported list. Think of this a an anonymous social network. Currently, Secret operates in the US.

The move from the US will take Secret to other English-speaking markets, including the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. It makes sense for the company to expand its horizons and tackle Android and more regions. The mobile platform has captured most of the smartphone market and there's scope for penetration with millions of potential users.

If you haven't yet downloaded the app, we previously reviewed it so be sure to check it out.

I use this app regularly and really find it kind of therapeutic in a way. The concept behind it is great however getting people to to subscribe to your postings is difficult. Most posts are just ones that you make that are unseen by anyone. I havent figured out the trick to gain "followers"....
