Flakey Friends is a lighthearted, fun app that also serves a purpose.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
Flakey Friends, a new mobile application that allows users to publically tag friends who “flake” on them, has officially launched in the iTunes App Store. This unique social app integrates another part of users’ social lives in a fun way by allowing users to openly and publicly tag friends that flake on them for any reason. Jerome Payelle, entrepreneur and Flakey Friends app creator, grew tired of unreliable friends who were frequently late, if they showed up at all. His frustration with his own flakey friends, coupled with his technical knowledge, led him to create Flakey Friends.
“I wanted to create a fun, interactive app that would utilize social media to hold friends accountable,” said Payelle. “Everybody has at least one friend that falls into the flake category, and with the Flakey Friends app, we believe users will not only enjoy tagging their own flakey friends, but will have fun avoiding getting tagged themselves. Flakey Friends is a lighthearted, fun app that also serves a purpose.”
Flakey Friends allows users to sign in on two different social networking sites: Facebook and Twitter. The app will then prompt users to type in a message, or select a pre-populated message such as “did not show up” or “flaked on me at the last minute!” by tapping the “comments” button.
When users are done typing their message, they are then able to select a flakey friend to add from their contacts list and report them. Reporting a flakey friend posts a status update to Facebook and/or Twitter that includes the message, along with the flaking friends’ name.
“Flakey Friends is not only fun, but it’s an incredibly simple app to use,” said Payelle. “With a touch of a button you can tag flakey friends and hopefully encourage them to be less flakey in the future.”
Flakey Friends is currently available for download on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch in the iTunes App Store for $0.99.
