Anonymous Chat App Creates An Exclusive Social Network Inside Applebee’s
WhatsApplebee's is a secret social platform exclusively for the chain's diners.
Smartphone-toting Applebee’s diners can now strike up anonymous conversations with their fellow diners at the restaurant using a new anonymous social chat app called WhatsApplebee’s.
The iOS app was created by New York-based developer Mike Lazer-Walker who apparently built it as a joke or as his own take on apps that seem like a parody of the tech culture but are actually real products.
The app is exclusive for Applebee’s customers who are at the restaurant at the same time. The app uses iPhone location services to determine whether the users are currently inside an Applebee’s or are within 100 meters of one. Once a user is out of that coverage area, they can no longer chat up anyone who’s in the restaurant.
