New app offers a clever way to communicate using your phone screen
There is a slick new iPhone app that I tried this weekend called No Chat. It allows you to get someone's attention just by flashing your phone screen. Picture being in a loud bar or restaurant, and rather than yelling your drink order, you just hold up your phone. That is the idea of No Chat - to allow you to create a quick custom message displayed or flashed (aggressively, I might add) on your phone. It seems silly, but it works well. I used it today leaving work to hail a cab. I can see myself using this in a ton of other scenarios, like when I want to close my tab quickly at a restaurant or maybe even trolling a band to play a specific song.
Here's how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDrrglPBolw
I reached out to the creator of the app after finding his videos on TikTok and was astonished that he filed to patent the idea and has a bunch of new features being added. "I started seeing a trend in bars and concerts where people took blank Snapchats to write a quick message on their screen to communicate with an artist, and thought there has to be a better way!" said Matt Hagens, creator of No Chat.
I can see just by using it for a few days that No Chat has an endless amount of uses - hailing a taxi, telling a Lyft or Uber where you are, communicating with an artist, bartender, or server, all with your own custom message flashed on your screen.
It's worth noting that No Chat has already gained popularity among some big names in the entertainment industry. Mark Cuban, Drake, and Diplo are just a few of the high-profile individuals who have utilized this innovative app.
Don't yell - show your phone screen.
