App Review: Bottly

I am always looking for great new apps. This is not an addiction (Can making art be an addiction?) but a great way to conquer the unknown land we call “the global internet”. Mainly I dig for artists’ apps but sometimes I try social and gaming apps as well. That’s why I found Bottly for iOS.

Click for app “Bottly”!

I think many of us dreamt of sending and recieving messages in a bottle thrown in sea back in childhood, but just a few of us lived at seaside or ever had opportunity to find a message in a bottle.

Concept of the app is based on small world phenomena. How small is world nowadays? It’s tiny I would say. Get in contact with people all around the world or just send some words anonymously, as you please.

I sent some bottles and half of recieving people contacted me, also the developer. What a pleasure. It feels like talking through a long tube, ones can’t see each other, still can not stop to yell something inside.

I kindly advise to give it a try and create an own bottle map. Build bridges, not walls! May this app have a great future and never forget, virtual glass can not break!

Recommendation: Righteous Comic

Nowadays even comics can be published digitally and a European, who red anarchist “Asterix”, knows: Comics are for all kinds of age. I would even say, don’t trust anyone who doesn’t like comics. Cause they stand for joy of life. 

I am actually very impressed by a project called “Righteous“, telling the abstract and surrealistic story of what would happen if everyone would wake up one day committed to do the right things. Whatever means right…

Kevmo visualizes a world with free animals, worldwide food sharing, supporting people and politicians deciding to act on citizens, not industrial complexes. Even KKK is simply disbanded. Love it.

Take a look here on becomics, a page where you find different animated comicstrips, like Righteous, a free webcomic dedicated to humanity.

For me personally an impressive and brave story. Easy but heavy. Surreal but true. I support the project by giving graphic designs and translating it into German. Proudly. Thanks to Kevmo and his team, this is just awesome. Some have to make first steps! Follow them.
