I haven't played with it yet but the ephemeral group photo-sharing aspect reminds me of Clique (http://clq.it/ - made by ex-Viddy guys). On Clique, each photo disappears forever after it's viewed. According to the TC article (http://techcrunch.com/2013/12/11/leo/), Greylock and SV Angel invested. cc @joshelman & @abramdawson

great find @joshelman

That app was really hard to find in the app store. Interesting concept though, pumped to try it.

Also, why do they need my cell # and full name?

This looks similar to http://www.blinkapp.co/ . Also checkout https://burnnote.com/, http://www.clipchat.com/, http://winktheapp.com/ and https://www.mywickr.com/en/index.php. These apps are similar to Snapchat and are ephemeral messaging apps.

we are working hard on making leo the easiest way to group communicate. looks likes all questions have been answered but if anyone has any other comments or questions, feel free to send my way @car1os also. i'll check back here as well!

Thanks for jumping in, @car1os! I'm always curious to hear the "why" behind startups. Of all the things you could be doing, why are you building Leo?
carlos whitt
appreciate you asking! wanted to create the easiest way to connect with your loved ones. my family and friends are spread across the globe. since creating leo those people feel closer than they ever have before.

@car1os - I respect that. Too many people hate on apps that look like toys or distractions but reality is, they're meaningful and improve people's lives every day. My family and I are more connected thanks to MessageMe (http://ryanhoover.me/post/62824922947/why-distraction-apps-matter). Not to move away from the focus of Leo but I'm curious to hear your thoughts on Snapchat 6.1. We had an interesting discussion last week about Snapchat 6.1 (http://www.producthunt.co/posts/386). Brilliant or boneheaded?
