Preview PostSecret’s New iPhone App

Exciting news for fans of Frank Warren’s community mail art project turned global phenomenon PostSecret: Beginning next month, iPhone users will be able to anonymously upload their deepest, darkest secrets and react to the juicy tidbits that other users have posted. Think of it as free therapy.

“When I started PostSecret six years ago by passing out blank postcards to strangers and asking them write a secret and mail it to me, I never would have thought that it would turn my life upside-down, but it has,” Warren told us over email. “I no longer have the job I had, I now spend 50 – 60 hours a week on secrets and traveling to schools and sharing the funny and inspirational stories behind them. And even right now, it’s 5:42 AM and I am up because I cannot sleep. The new PostSecret App is being released in September and I am excited and worried about this new part of the project.”

Click through to watch a trailer for the project and to preview some of the first secrets made using the App — including one that’s from Warren himself! And, if you’re in New York, be sure to RSVP for our PostSecret App Launch and Thank You Party, August 29 at The Bell House.
