Ping, An Incredibly Simple and Cryptic App Focusing on Content Over Design

Ping is an incredibly simple and cryptic app by the developers of Secret that focuses on content rather than design. If that seems vague, it’s because every description of the app is vague, including a lengthy post on Medium about the app by Ben Lee. The App Store’s description simply states “You’re going to like me.”

Ping was born out of a weekend hackathon where the goal was an exercise in simplicity. We were fascinated by the idea of an app that could tell you what you need to know, right when you need to know it. Why scavenge for content?—?it should come to you.

What is known, however, is that the app attempts to keep users up to date by providing handy notifications — notifications which are customized by how users use the app. Navigating between screens is accomplished via small circles which become larger portals. Ping is currently available on iOS and Android.
