The Throw Tomatoes App Lets You Complain About and Praise Stuff

Throw Tomatoes is a social networking app that is a godsend for people like me who'd like to be able to express their disappointment, chagrin and pet peeves in a spontaneous and genuine way without being fearful of the judgment of all the hyper-politically correct people out there. The app gives people the opportunity to openly express their opinions about things they like and don't like.

Tomato-throwing is a universal expression of discontentment and disgust, and the app takes this into account. Users can take a picture of something -- say a dish at a restaurant that didn't taste good, or an athlete they're not fond of -- and hurl a virtual tomato at it. If you're in a positive mood, you can attach a green tomato next to a picture of something you do like. You can then add captions and hashtags and share your post on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
