As the founder of the San Francisco-based creative studio Moonbase, Alex Cornell’s latest faux app “Poof” is the world’s first disappearing app, deleting itself from your iPhone after just 24 hours.
Why would anyone download such an app? It has a beautiful UI and it’s “endorsed by celebrities”. The video also claims that an API even allows this functionality–the disappearing after 24 hours–to be extended to other apps.
Poof was created as a production experiment to test a variety of technical elements.
