    The Octopus says Hi!

    Yep. I agree. I'm so into this app. I started off writing messages that were considered and deep and meaningful but now I've gotten very, very silly. I talk of the giraffe on a bicycle, the octopus and the garden gnome. There's been tales of Elephants in tutus dancing on my beach. Those damn Elephants have also been yodelling. They've been keeping me awake at night. I've also been sending out rhyms and limericks. Some of the responses I've gotten have been very funny. Some people get into the spirit of it and others just don't seem to know what to say. I've got one great rhyming "roses are red" conversation going backwards and forwards. As you said this is a just a ridiculous amount of fun. I'm having a ball.

    I've been receiving a few with Emoji. But no American flag or beer yet. I've responded with replies related to the Emoji received. For example: Emoji chicken says "cluck". Sometimes it is lots of fun. There are a few people out there who can be creative and original. But sometimes they just have no clue and come back with things like "you should jailbreak".


    The strange messages can be the funniest ones. I've sent out some really wacky messages and some of the funniest responses have been from people who don't "get it" or who don't know how to respond. I agree that this app is a steal. I'm having a lot of fun with it.

    Just picked this app up.

    Not sure if it's a keeper yet.

    Does anyone know how to delete letters?

    I'd like if they put in a badge on the app icon so you would know how many messages you have in a future update.

    The new update just dropped, so for all of you having to pick and choose which messages to keep, it is now a thing of the past...;)

    Edit: just updated. It's great. You get more inventory space, and you can make a signature. Other stuff is included also.
