Have you heard of the new app Honk, a mix of Snapchat and MSN messenger?

Is there anyone who hasn't been impatient to get an answer to a message at some point or another? A new application called "Honk" aims to address this impatience fueled by social media networks. Honk presents live messages that are visible while the user is in the process of writing them as well as the ability to call the recipient if they are not in front of their screen.

Older generations may remember MSN messenger, which allowed you to "call" the person you want to contact if they didn't answer your message by shaking the chat window with a "nudge”. The Honk application seems to have been inspired by this feature when developing its instant messaging. With Honk, the application wants to make virtual exchanges more interactive and above all more time-sensitive.
