Thoughts on Honk

  • I can’t quite remember when a messaging product had be thinking about my words as honk. When I compose on Honk I find myself sounding out the statement in my own head as if I was verbalizing it.
  • Maybe an unintended consequence but screencaps like these feel like a new media unit in of itself. The live-typing of a bit or comment are far different than pasting the paragraphs of an iOS notes screenshot. It’s a captivating linear experience that can bring up a lot of the twist + turns and nuances of “dialogue”.
  • My brain gets in a noodle thinking about the dynamic of both seeing live-typing and a confirm/send button of that same text. I think they will figure out a sleeker middle ground or have to make a bolder design decision to make it feel like less sending.
  • I kinda get what :Honk: as an initiation means. Sometimes I do send friends a text “you around?” when I want a bit more captive attention to engage with them about a certain topic. Seeing them present in the app is nice but not sure it’s actually the right proxy to know I could engage them with 5–10 minutes of time in mind.
