Imagine you’re alone on a desert island and your only form of communication with the outside world is by sending messages in a bottle. That’s the idea behind Bottled, an app that lets you send short messages through a virtual sea and have them reach other users anywhere in the entire world.
An original and intriguing concept
The plethora of cookie cutter messaging apps we’ve seen in the past few years makes us appreciate a concept as original as the one we see in Bottled. The idea of being able to communicate with other people through virtual messages in bottles makes this app extra appealing.
Unlike other apps that let you chat with other users fluidly, in this case the first exchange of messages isn’t completed simultaneously. You have to throw your message out into the sea and wait a certain amount of time before someone receives it and replies.
Where will your bottled message end up?
Once you enter some basic information, you’ll be ready to send your messages out into the sea. To do that, you have to write a message and send it on its way around the world. In a few seconds, you’ll see the country and user who will be able to read your message. You even have a tab where you can see all the places around the world where your messages have ended up.
After that, you’ll have to wait to see if the other person is going to respond to your message. Also, numerous bottles with messages from other users may show up on the shores of your island, ready to be opened. If you’re curious to read the literary creations of other people, you can also do so by tapping on the world found in the lower left corner of the screen.
Lastly, it’s worth mentioning that in Bottled, you can also find a whole series of objects to open and save in your inventory. For example, you’ll be able to retrieve bottles of rum to share with other users and improve your reputation. If you want to have a great time sharing messages in glass bottles, this is an app that you need to have on your Android device.
