What can you use the app for?

Jyte is an application for people to make “claims”. Most are very silly and have no inherent value. Users attempt to build “cred” by getting others to affirm their claims.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

JanRain launched Jyte in 2007 as a way for people with Open ID to gain credibility. It evolved into a fun tool for people to make claims about anything. Jyte was acquired by AboutUs in January of 2010.

What are the differences to other apps?

Users can make whatever claim they want to and other users can agree or disagree. There is no verification or other background information. This is strictly for fun.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Once a claim is made, users are asked to see if the claim is a duplicate of others on the site. They can make any changes; add tags, descriptions, and an image if desired. During review, the image uploader did not work, despite attempts with various file formats and sizes.

Only other Jyte members may vote on the claims, limiting input, though users may invite others to join. The app is easy to use, but not very appealing.

How does the registration process work?

Users sign in using AOL, Google, Yahoo, or OpenID accounts. No other information necessary.

What does it cost to use the application?

Jyte is free to use.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Based on the existing claims and an overall impression of the site, Jyte is not recommended.
