New York: How do you kill time while using the toilet? Now you can socialise while answering the nature’s call, thanks to a new app.
Created by two students, Pooductive is a free app that facilitates one-on-one or group chats. You can also choose to message people nearby or be connected with users in other cities or countries, mashable.com reported.
“The fact that there is only little to do whilst tending to ‘number two’ is common knowledge, and truly a first world problem,” the developers wrote on Pooductive’s website.
“Think of it as a magical place where people from around the globe can anonymously meet to enjoy their time of zen, peace and tranquillity together, by conversing, philosophising and sharing ideas with each other,” they said.
“You could simply call it a messaging app if you want to, but it is so much more,” the developers said.
There is a “songs that describe it” feature, which you may find either hilarious or disgusting depending on your sense of humour.
But the developers are serious. They hoped to use the app to have a positive impact on the world — by partnering with charities that promote sanitation and clean water in developing countries.
