Oy vey. That’s not how anyone wants to end ~*SPRinG BREAK 2k13*~, is it? The PSYC 162 listserv was treated to quite the email this afternoon, and it’s almost as good as if it said the prof was cancelling the midterm. Prank or not, we hope someone learned her lesson. Don’t be screenshotting your Snapchats!

ATTN: Future Wearers of “I Met My Spouse At Penn” Buttons

Spotted in the VP bathrooms. Click to zoom.

Tired of sending romantic texts meant for your boyfriend to your dad instead? Accidentally mass SnapChat that picture of your ta-tas? Have no fear, overly touchy, PDA couples with matching profile pictures – there’s an app for that.

Between is Penn’s latest venture into the world of iPhone apps. According to its description, “Between is a private mobile space for you and your special someone. Share photos, texts, voice messages, and special days on Between to make your great relationship even better.” Ew.

In other words, a more secretive way for you to send nudie pics to your special someone. Merry Christmas, baby.

“Campus’ favorite” new phone-friendly PennApp — MeepMe — made its campus debut last Thursday night at Smoke’s. Reps for the app gave willing participants “MEEPID” numbers at the door, and from what we hear (or received screenshots of), Penn jumped at the chance to get its skeeze on. MeepMe cruised straight past an “interactive way to flirt” and on to a service resembling those late night just-for-local-singles hotlines.

The verdict: MeepMe is glorified anonymous sexting, tailor made for phone-happy and direct social interaction-inept dorks like us. And Penn guys are creepy. The combination has Smoke’s’ dance floor live-cams beat for the strangest (but also most hilarious) addition to late-night boozing on campus.

Want in on some of the action? The MeepMe crew will be setting up shop at Blarney tonight. For more of last Thursday’s MeepMe conversations, see after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
