Do your friends think of you as a bit of a whinger? Do you look at the world as a cup half empty rather than one that is half full? Do you find yourself constantly posting things that you have a bit of a beef about on your social networks? Are your friends threatening to unfriendly you? Do you wonder why no one seems to be listening? Well, forget about the regular social networks - if your friends only want to post pictures of their babies or what they ate tonight, that's their problem. Now there's a social network that was built for people like us. Vent is a new news and social media app for iOS that lets you share your frustrations with like-minded people who won't give you a hard time just because you are letting them know of the injustices in the world.
Vent is a social app that lets you share your frustrations to social media friends without the fear of being unfriended, called into the principal’s office or upsetting your boss. Instead of ranting away to your friends on Twitter or Facebook - where people know who you are and just don’t want to hear about it anymore - you can now unleash your inner feelings with relish, to a group of like-minded people who are happy to help you get it off your chest. When you have created your persona you can start by sharing your frustrations with your new community and choose your color-coded mood on a spectrum that can be calm, irritated, annoyed, angry or furious, depending on how you feel. Then you can post your vents - which are like status updates - with whatever your gripe is in 240 characters or less. You are also encouraged to follow other ‘Venters’ and be followed in return and you can comment, favourite, keep up with the most popular vents and generally have a lot of fun.
A while back FeedMyApp reviewed a great little app called GripeO that gave customers a place to hand over their business complaints to get a better outcome. That's fine for material goods but sometimes we need a place where we can sort out our mental issues. Vent is a lighthearted, free social network where, as they say themselves, you can "get it off your chest and get on with your day." Rather than ranting and raving at work, school or in your social network and pissing off people who have no interest, Vent lets you vent your feelings to a sympathetic audience. They might argue or disagree with your views but they won't deny your right to tell it as you see it. Vent is easy and fun to use and is the perfect place to whinge without fear of reprisal.
