This new app co-founded by an MCU star wants to make sharing fun again

We’ve all been there. You come across a TikTok video that is so funny that you can barely catch your breath from laughter, and you decide to send it to your friend. Surely, it will elicit the same response, but the only reply you get is a boring laughing face emoji, or worse, you’re left on read. 

It’s not you, it’s them. Don’t fret, though. A new app aims to solve this and bring the human charm back to social sharing.

Founded by serial entrepreneur and Moment founder, Faheem Kajee and Hollywood star Karen Gillan, known for playing Nebula in the MCU movies, Seen is a video messaging app that lets you send private videos to your friends in either one-on-one direct iMessages or group chats of up to 11 people. 

Say you come across a hilarious cat video online and want to share it with your friends. Seen lets you quickly drop the video in the group chat for your friends to view. Once your friends receive the content, they must record themselves reacting to the video. This reaction gets shared only with the friends in the chat, and in turn, the sender must then record themselves. 

One of the app's core features is its integration with TikTok, meaning you can easily share videos from directly inside the app, similar to how you would copy the link. Seen also incorporates a scrollable feed of some of the most popular videos on TikTok. According to the team, a Reels and YouTube Shorts integration is on the horizon. 

Seen is currently only available for iOS, and the team is hard at work building the next iteration, which will likely include a public feed of users and even monetization features like games and filters. It’s got some big-name backers as well, like Twitter co-founder Ev Williams and Twitch co-founder Kevin Lin

This new feature from Warp lets users talk directly to their computer in plain English.This new feature from Warp lets users talk directly to their computer in plain English.

Imagine being a developer and telling your command line exactly what you need in plain English.

That’s the idea behind Warp’s newest product, Agent Mode. Agent Mode lives in the Warp Terminal and allows developers to write in plain English and receive step-by-step guidance through development workflows.

Agent Mode is not a code generation tool; it’s more of an always-on technical assistant in your terminal. According to Melanie Crissey, Warp's Product Marketing Manager, it represents a “paradigm shift” in how developers interact with their computers.

What can it do?

Unlike an external AI assistant, Agent Mode follows along in your terminal while you work. It learns about your project, identifies roadblocks, and understands the technologies you're using to make smart suggestions about your dev environment.

For example, if you’re setting up a Rails project but are unfamiliar with the command line commands, you can ask for guidance in plain English. The AI agent will walk you through each command you need to input.

Agent Mode can also execute tasks. In the announcement video, Founder and CEO Zach Lloyd sets up a database pooling connection. After Agent Mode explains the initial tasks, Zach asks it to set up a Docker file. The assistant seeks permission to run specific commands and instantly sets up the Docker file once approved. It will ask for permission anytime you request it to execute a command. 

There’s been a lot of talk about AI replacing developers. Remember Devin, the supposedly first AI-powered software engineer? The Warp team has decided to take a different, choosing to empower developers instead of replacing them. CEO Zach Lloyd said, “Instead of trying to replace software engineers with AI, Agent Mode unlocks productivity, tightening the feedback loop between humans and AI.”

If you want to give it a spin, you can download or update Warp and simply type “hello” and Agent Mode will be ready and waiting.
