Tap Get Pte Ltd  has introduces What Time 1.0, a new social networking app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.

What Time was designed to let you chat about what you’re doing in-the-moment in ephemeral chat groups that automatically close when that event is over.

Groups are based on what ‘time’ it is. Members chat along with shared photos scrolling along the background so everyone in the group knows what everyone else is talking

Rather than having chat groups that stay open forever and get easily flooded with multiple topics going on all at the same time, it would be better to chat in groups that: A. Only exist for as long as they’re needed, and B. Stay on topic, Tap Get emphasized.

Only existing for as long as they’re needed, Chat groups in the “What Time” app start with a timer counting down from 24:00 hours, new messages sent to the group will add a further 10 minutes, but eventually as the conversation ends it will reach 00:00 and the group is closed.

Chatting on “What Time”, groups are based on what ‘time’ it is, such as: “It’s Party Time”, “It’s Coffee Time” or even “It’s Sexy Time” and chat along with shared photos scrolling along the background so everyone in the group knows what everyone else is talking about.

Kareen Janin, Tap Get CEO, stressed that the world does not need another social network, but where group chats could be better, “Groups in apps like WhatsApp and Messenger already do a great job of keeping us close with family and friends – but overuse for the wrong events spoil the experience”, he said.

“So, rather than create a whole new platform, we made What Time as an alternative app to chat about short-lived events that works with your existing social networks”, he adds.

Currently What Time works with Facebook contacts; adding support for other networks is planned for future updates.
