      What are your thoughts on this app?

      I personally think it's a weird one.

      That's just sick. If I die, I wouldn't want to creep my friends with messages from the beyond. I'll take my secrets to the grave and keep my dignity.

      A bit creepy but maybe then I'd be able to tell a certain person how I feel about her. :p I'd be dead so yeah why cares right? :D That being said, it's still a bit.....odd.

      I think it's a bit weird but it's a little bit like a public reading of your last will and testament? I guess the question would be, how often would you change the message? What if you record a message and forget about it then die like 30 years later and something that makes no sense gets posted?

      I don't know I kind of think this is pretty cool. Maybe I'm just weird, but think about it. Wouldn't you want to say bye, I think it's pretty cool myself, it gives you a chance to say goodbye, and kind of a closure for your friends.

      Then say 'bye' before you die, not after that. This app would just make it creepy. Months after people stop mourning your account would be like "Goodbye you all". I can't think of that as something nice!

      I kinda like it and I'd most definitely use it for a comical, but yet serious, purpose to have a last-hurrah.

      Got to admit as much as it does seem weird to have an app that does such a thing when you think about it there are so many reasons to use it and so much you can do with it, family members probably would appreciate having something like that after you pass away.

      i never cancelled my sons account after he died, his friends and family still drop by and post messages to him and send their love and tell him whats been going on ect.
      I find that very comforting xxx
