It is just what it says it is. I do have an issue with threads actually updating. I'll get the notification for it, but when I open the app, it new messages don't actually show. My fix is to force the app to stop from the recent apps screen and then open it again. Kind of annoying. Also, I just don't know why in 2022, more apps don't have a dark mode. Especially if it's going to be so bright white. Harsh on the eyes at night.

Hi Bryant, thank you for your review and feedback. We'll take a look into the messages updating when you tap on a notification, the feedback there is really helpful. Dark mode is on our roadmap and our small team of developers are working hard on delivering many features to improve Open. We hope you continue to have great conversations on Open!

I generally like the way the app works, but there is one very annoying problem. Supposedly, conversations in my feed are from "friends" (phone contacts) and "friends of friends", so most people should be local. However, several other local users (all strangers to each other) and I have found our feeds inundated with posts from the same particular city, St. Louis, where none of us knows anyone. We know the origin only because the posters provide it themselves. Why is this happening?

Conversations in the app can be from friends, or friends of friends who may not always live locally. This largely depends not only on who you are friends with, but who your friends are friends with. If you have any additional questions, definitely feel free to reach out to us at help@letsopen.co

There have been many times when I was dealing with a tough situation but felt that I could not open up because I was worried what others would think of me and that they would criticize me. I did not know where to turn. Now with Open, I have a safe place to turn to where I can finally feel free to fully open up since I have this kind of shield that protects my identity. Unlike other platforms, it has a more helpful, positive atmosphere. The app is so easy to use and connect with others.
