Once again, the Internets really DO work! Two-and-a-half weeks ago,¬†we told you about¬†a¬†new app called Peek¬†that tried to make sending dirty pics to the objects of your affection safer. The original idea: You take a naughty picture with your phone via Peek, send it out and the recipient can only view the picture¬†once, through a small circular moveable ‚Äúkeyhole‚ÄĚ, for only 30 seconds before it disappears (from both your phones). Cool idea, right? But we discovered one massive hole in the app — if you quickly moved the keyhole around and snapped a bunch of screen shots during that 30-second window, in Photoshop you could puzzle together a pretty revealing composite, sort of defeating the purpose of the app in the process.
Well, color us pink, because we were tickled to receive the following note the other day:
Hi Em & Lo,
Thank you for reviewing my app,¬†Peek.
We really appreciated your honest review, and the effort in highlighting the flaw.
We have since released an update, which eliminates your flaw you wrote about.
If the recipient takes a screen capture, the image expires immediately.
In thanks, below are 10 vouchers for you and your readers to use to download the latest update of¬†Peek.
So, there you have it: people really¬†can¬†make a difference (with their snarky blogging). The first ten people to use the codes get¬†Peek¬†for free — so hop to it!
