#Kleanse Spotlight: 15-Year-Old Trisha Prabhu Develops An App That Looks To End Cyberbullying!

Filed under: InspirationTech TalkBullyingViral: KidsGirl Power

Trisha Prabhu is tackling cyberbullying head on!

It's hard to remember what exactly we we're doing when we were just 15 years old, but we're willing to wager it wasn't nearly as inspirational as this!!

With everyone connecting via social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, cyberbullying is a pretty huge issue these days — ESPECIALLY in high schools!

But Trisha Prabhu is doing everything she can to make the Internet a friendlier place with a little app she developed called ReThink!

By connecting to all of your social media apps on your mobile device, ReThink is able to keep track of any outgoing messages or possible posts and asks users to reconsider sending anything out if it detects harmful or offensive language!

As a high schooler, this issue clearly hit close to home for Trisha. But she says she was really inspired when she heard the story of a teen who took her own life after being the victim of cyberbullying:

"How can a girl younger than myself be pushed to take her own life? I was shocked, heartbroken and angry to learn about this incident and set out to find a long-term solution to cyberbullying. I knew I had to do something to stop this from ever happening again."

While not all victims claim their own lives, the numbers are pretty staggering when it comes to teens dealing with depression and anxiety due to cyberbullying.

Trisha goes on to say:

"Research shows that over 50% of adolescents online are cyberbullied, 38% suffer from suicidal tendencies. Victims suffer from depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem, and are afraid to go to school the following day."

The app is currently available on the Google Play store and should be available to Apple devices soon, but the early reviews are already great!

In fact, Trisha says ReThink users have reconsidered sending harmful messages about 93% of the time!

The 15-year-old has already won a handful of awards for her innovative app and she's rubbed shoulders with some pretty interesting people (above), and we have a feeling this wont be the last we hear from her!

Filed under: Tech TalkGIFs


It seemed just like yesterday we were saying thanks for the memories to Flappy Bird after its developer removed the app from the App Store and the Google Play Store for being too "addictive," but looks like its not completely Game Over!

That's right, the band Fall Out Boy has created their own Flappy Bird parody app named Fall Out Bird, and they finished all the coding in just one day!

Whoa, the Matrix called, it wants its Neo back!

Fall Out Boy dished on Twitter about when we can start downloading this app, finding a secluded place, and spending the rest of our days playing it over and over again:

Smart Phones With Discontinued Flappy Bird App Selling For Thousands Online! Let The Bidding War Begin!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueTech TalkGIFs


Fly, Flappy Bird! Fly through those pipes!

We all felt like our wings had been clipped when the developer of the highly addicting game Flappy Bird removed the game from the iPhone and Android app stores, but now you can buy smart phones that had previously downloaded the game online!

Yay! And they're only thousands of dollars! Yay…wait, what now?

Different eBay vendors are selling their iPhones and Androids from anywhere between $300 and $5,000, most of them for the iPhone 5S!

One iPhone 5 has now reached $90,000 in an auction after 62 birds…uh, bids flapped the price up from its starting position at $750!

Because when we think of an appropriate use of $90,000, our minds immediately go to a game where you press a screen to make a 2D bird fly between plumbing.

Who knows? Maybe the developer will put the very simple game up on the app store again, and make everyone who went on eBay extremely regretful.

Anti-Gay App Disappears From App Store!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayTech TalkLGBT


Considering Apple donated $100,000 to oppose the ban on gay marriage, we knew it was weird for them to host an anti-gay app!

As we previously reported, anti-gay app The Manhattan Declaration was once available on Apple's App Store, but now it is nowhere to be found.

It seems thousands of people banned together to sign an online petition asking Apple to remove the app.

"Supporters of equal rights and the right of women to control their own bodies must stand together and say to Apple: 'Applications that support hate and division have no place in the iTunes Store,'" read the petition.

Good for them. Equality for all!

Boooo! Anti-Gay App Approved For iPhone!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayTech TalkSad SadLGBT


WTF?! We want answers!

Apple has approved Manhattan Declaration, an app toted as a "call of Christian conscience" that invites users to stand against gay marriage by signing a 4,700-word document created by Christian clergy and scholars.

The app also "speaks in defense of the sanctity of life, traditional marriage, and religious liberty" and according to its creators, "issues a clarion call to Christians to adhere firmly to their convictions in these three areas."

Users answer a brief, 4-question survey that includes questions like "Do you support same sex relationships?" or "Do you support the right of choice regarding abortion?" If you answer "yes" to any of the questions, you'll be told you replied incorrectly.

And somehow Apple gave the app a "4+" rating, meaning that it contains "no objectionable material."

Not surprisingly, people are outraged!

Change.org accuses the app of fostering "homophobia and extreme anti-choice views" while "[boiling] LGBT people down to little more than deviant cretins."

Creators of Manhattan Declaration has already responded saying:

"These radicals often pollute the debate with ranting. They rant about 'equal rights,' without explaining how homosexuality deserves it, 'women's rights,' without explaining how women have a right to kill their child, and even 'hateful Christians,' without showing instances where we hate."

OMG! Shameful.
