Avocado is a cute little app designed to allow a couple to communicate directly with one another. It provides a private little social network, where you can send messages and pictures, create a shared to-do list, and even create custom emoticons from your own face. But a new update has added a bunch of privacy features, which certainly raises an eyebrow…
After all, why would images and text between a couple need a lock code and hidden message contents? Why would you not want other people to see the message you’re sending to your partner….oh. Ooooh…Oh! I get it!
Here’s what’s officially new:
