We launched an app called “Intercourse” in December.
This app was designed to allow people to get honest and anonymous feedback from their audience during a pitch or presentation, and was launched in three weeks with a $0.99 price in the app store.
Since then we’ve seen a lot of feedback from people who love the idea, but were concerned that directing their audience to “myname.intercourse.io” would distract from their presentation.
A little bit of this feedback would be okay, but the volume of similar feedback we received was enough to make anyone pay attention. We’ve got real demand for this product, and a consistent theme about a single thing users are objecting to.
The search for a replacement began…
It took four days of brainstorming, searching, cursing at domain squatters, and gathering feedback to arrive at a new name we were all happy with.
I wish I’d kept a count of how many domains we checked, only to find they were registered but not in use. There would be at least 100.
We narrowly avoided a pivot into launching an anti-squatting domain registrar.
We’ve now relaunched, and are offering the app for free for a limited time as our penance for the trouble.
Thank you to everyone that took the time to provide feedback on our first launch. We look forward to hearing what you think of the new version!
