  • Company Description
    At the heart of Whisper’s app is the ability to anonymously share secrets with others. Those secrets take the form of photos that users can overlay text on top of. It looks a lot like the long-running PostSecret website, which has been running for years, but Whisper brings in a whole bunch of features that make it into a more full-fledged social network.
