rando

I know what you're thinking: "Oh, no... not another social image sharing app!" And if this were anything like that, I'd share you sentiments. But it's not – it's actually quite refreshing, because this app focuses solely on sharing and not at all on social.

Here's the gist: you take a pic – called a Rando in this case – and send it anonymously to someone in a completely random place elsewhere in the world. In return, you also get a Rando. And you must send one to get one. All transfers are completely anonymous – you won't know who got your Rando, and likewise won't know who sent the one you got. You can, however, see what part of the world your Rando landed in. Pretty cool, right?

Here's the best part: there are absolutely no social functions here. No likes. No favorites. No comments, shares, or responses. It's just images – the company refers to it as simply "an appreciation of fine photography." I dig this idea.

Of course, there's the worry that you'll see something... less than ideal, if you catch my drift. There's a handy "mark as inappropriate" option in the settings, so hopefully things will be kept clean.

Rando is completely free – hit the widget to give it a shot.

    ... so many dicks. You already know.

      I figured as much as soon as I read what the concept was, and that sucks, because it's a great concept. Dicks ruin everything.

        You can't use "dicks" and "suck" in the same comment. Please go report to HR.

        The figurative dick with a dick is the dick. Don't dick with the wrong dick.

          Yours faithfully, Dick.

    • Yannick Binnenweg

      Haven't seen any dicks thus far..

      • Sqube

        Full disclosure: I also have yet to see a penis, or even anything resembling one.

    • lljktechnogeek

      The time to cock for this app can only be measured in yoctoseconds.

  • Mitch

    Wouldn't that be "Whale Trail"? lol

    Finally, a simple way to see random penises from all around the world without having to ask for them. Or is it peni?

    How does an app like this make money?

    • atlouiedog

      All of the pictures that I've received back have been of fast food owned by Yum! Brands.

  • CA719

    I've tried it a few times and there don't seem to be too many users right now, as all of my pictures are coming from one of 2 locations, one from what seems like a high school in mid-Texas, and the other from England.

    I did receive one from a location in North Korea... don't totally believe that one though.

    • Mehmet Fatih YILDIRIM

      Probably kim Jong un was trying the app for himself, since he is the only tech user in all north Korea, just ignore him

    • silaslenz

      Those girls in texas are scary. First i got a painted woman with handcuffs, then two girls nearly sleeping, then a strange looking woman, and now a octopus with an eyepatch...

  • Andrew

    I absolutely love this idea. I'll be using it as lot.

  • wheineman

    So it's snap-chat-roulette?

  • Mike Loomis

    You know how you do something even though you are pretty sure it could go horribly wrong? Well, I just installed this.

  • http://geniousatplay.blogspot.com/ Bikram Agarwal

    What...!!! Why...? What's the appeal here? "Ooooh ooohh. I received a picture from a total stranger, from a random place on earth"...??

  • crackhead

    ECA = estimated cock arrival (measurable in nanoseconds)

  • David Fleck

    Only three pictures until I got a penis pic.

  • Scott LeMay

    No dicks yet, yay!
    And like another user, all my pics have been coming from TX and the UK - and one from North Korea. Although I did get one from both Spain and Sweden.
