Recently we had an opportunity to speak with Tanju Yesilot, the Owner/creator/financer at RattleTadl about RattleTadl
Please share with us the backstory of what motivated you to create this app.
I wanted to create a social app that actually was social. Just as simple as that. No subscribing, no following, no commenting, none of that. Strip it all down to its most basic form.
What features do you hope to roll out to your app in the future?
Hopefully a lot more.
What has been the most rewarding aspect of the creation of this app?
Seeing people using it. Eventhough I had to shut it down (for now), it was satisfying to see people coming back daily. Thanks.
What is the coolest or most innovative feature of your app?
It connects people on a different level. There is no hiding behind a keyboard or being a troll/douche. How? Because after each connected call (which is the only way to communicate in RattleTadl) users can rate each other.
What surprised you most in your journey to create this app?
How much effort it took. It really was a journey, for better or worse. Very stressful, but that's a story for another time.
Which other mobile apps or technology have inspired you?
Do you have any recommendations or advice for others wanting to create a mobile app?
Yes, find a developer you can trust. Do that and you're good to go.
How did you decide which platforms to release your app on and do you plan on releasing your app to other platforms?
I actually wanted to launch it on Android. But I noticed it would be hard for me to test it, because I'm a iOS user. Hence the decision to launch it over there.
How is your app different than the rest of the market? Which unique need does it fill?
RattleTadl encourages you to pick up the phone and talk, because of it's simplicity. All you need to do is select which option you want to be found in; with- or without showing (and seeing) user photos.
