  1. I think the 11:11 concept is very timely because more young consumers are becoming used to having access to instant information and gratification. 11:11 ‘forces’ user to act quickly on the app because they know time is running out. The moving quickly aspect of the app is something people can relate to, I think. This app also has a game aspect that we in class learned is used by many successful apps including foursquare. The random matching sounds like a new idea because I haven’t seen it anywhere online before. The only other app that is similar to 11:11 is probably Tinder, a dating app.

    I say yes! The limited aspect of 11:11 is a good idea.
