baby” is a new communication app that lets you talk to someone, anytime you want, instantly.

We Doki Doki developers were trying to solve the following problem: sometimes we have a nagging urge to talk to someone, anyone, but telephone call just won’t do!

That is because making a phone call can be nerve-wrecking, and it’s hard to tell when to hang up. The urge to talk to someone sometimes grabs you in the middle of the night, out of nowhere, yet making a telephone call sounds like an ordeal if all we want to talk about is silly trifles.

With “baby” app, however, this can be easily resolved! You can listen to other people’s voice messages that they recorded, and they can listen to yours vice versa. Listen to messages recorded by total strangers and find someone whose voice gives off good vibes. If you find your match, you can start chatting with them by exchanging several second long voice messasges.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you can easily find someone you have checmistry with, and talk to them about anything, without any fuss? This would be different from a phone call (a phone conversation can be trying on the nerves!) — a similar experience minus all the unconfortable, painful feelings!

We are starting the first round of user testing this week. If you agree with our sentiment, please participate!

This “baby” app is only a prototype and not a finished product, but we would like you to come on board for a new experience. Please join the testing if you:

live or are currently staying in San Francisco or New York City.

use iPhone 6 or 6s.

are male or female, over 18 and below 35 years of age, and have a Facebook account.

All communication is in English. We are recruiting 100 men and 100 women, 200 people altogether.

If you are looking to connect with someone via voice, by all means do participate in this user testing!

You can submit your participation request to “baby app testing group” on our Facebook page below:

Look forward to seeing you all there!
