I've been playing with Popcorn messaging and chatting w/ Popcorn_Ryan (its solo founder) for a few months. IMHO, I don't get a lot of value out of it (yet). There isn't enough context and it's difficult to have an actual conversation. That said, it's a very interesting experiment and I'm curious to see how it evolves. @carmeldea has a great writeup on the app here - http://pando.com/2013/12/03/first-time-founder-attracts-the-attention-of-avenged-sevenfold-and-justin-biebers-manager-with-his-messaging-app/
The map button is pretty frustrating if you're not right-handed. If you don't have the app: instead of tapping the map button to invoke a view that has to be dismissed, holding the button down temporarily shows a map overlay that goes away when you let go. This button is in the top-right corner of the screen. If you're left-handed, this means you can never actually see the map, because you press it, it shows up under your thumb, then you let go and its gone.

For densely populated areas (ie NYC), this app is a lot of fun. Of my favorite aspects of the product is how it handles your location perimeter in such urban metros, ie in Midtown, I found myself chatting w. a whole group of popcorners (is that what you call users of the app? ;)) than when I traveled to lower Manhattan. Side note: lots of interesting private messaging/ephemeral apps coming out of Popcorn Messaging's home territory in LA. One of those has a ghost as mascot. :)
