Feckr is an Android application that allows you to secretly "tag" people with messages. Tags are anonymous, permanent and public - every Feckr player can see all the tags for people around them. Unless they also play Feckr, your victims will never know what you really think of them.
The only problem: Feckr is scattershot - when you create a new tag, it gets applied to everyone nearby, whether you mean it or not.
Feckr requires an Android device with Android v2.1 or greater, data transfer and bluetooth capabilities. Feckr is free, but will use your data service to exchange tags with a server (normal network charges apply).
Simply search for "Feckr" in the market application, and click install.

Feckr is developed by the Lincoln Social Computing Research Centre in the UK. As part of our research we are interested in the effect of technology on social relationships.
Feckr is part of our research into the relationships between mischief and technology. We are interested in understanding the social role of mobile devices in our daily lives. They appear to act as confidants and co-conspirators that accompany us everywhere we go. Feckr makes this role explicit in order to better understand the relationship between phone and owner.
We take privacy seriously - Despite appearances, nothing is ever stored on a device without permission, there is no "hacking" involved. Also, "feckr" is a completely non-offensive word, we checked with an Irishman ;)
