Other users read the notes by browsing the map and can reply via an inbox-based messaging system. Shy Breaker empowers its users to reach out to the people who catch their eye but didn’t have the nerve to approach. Users can signup for a free account on ShyBreaker.com or download the iPhone app for $0.99.

A chance encounter, strangers lock eyes, feel a mysterious attraction... then keep walking. Shy Breaker offers a second chance to connect for the first time. When that first chance to connect with someone is missed, users can still leave a note for the attractive stranger on Shy Breaker. If they're of like mind and using Shy Breaker, they can either leave a note, or reply to one that was left for them.

When using the iPhone version of Shy Breaker, the user signs on after a quick registration process. They are located using GPS and can then see notes left in their general vicinity. The user can also drop an anonymous note at their current location with only their username to identify them. If they want to drop a note for somebody but are currently unable or it's otherwise inconvenient, it can be done later by selecting a time and place for the note to appear.

When browsing for other people's notes, it's a voyeuristic free-for-all. All notes are publicly viewable but the author's identity is private. If a user suspects a note is for them or otherwise has something to say to the person who left it, they can reply to the note, initiating a private in-box based dialogue.

Describing how the app came to be, creator Steve "StevieSpin" Lunny says:

“I essentially created an app I personally need. I have no game. I never approach someone I might want to talk to and generally freeze up if I am approached. Shy Breaker gives people, who missed that first shot at connecting, a second chance.”

Shy Breaker is currently available for iPhone for $0.99 and all features are available on ShyBreaker.com for free. New features and upgrades are already in development.
