Dumbstruck: the app that records your friends’ reactions to your messages
With Dumbstruck, you can see your friends’ reactions to your messages via a Vine-like, 6 second video recording of how they respond when viewing what was sent to them. That video is send to you.
The way the app works is that it requires the recipient to acknowledge and touch a “start” button in order to read the message. The app then activates the camera and records the reaction. You can share the reactions on Facebook and Twitter. The app auto deletes the videos after 24 hours unless you choose the save them. Basically, Dumbstruck is a polar opposite to Snapchat.
Dumbstruck is available for iOS devices right now. It is free and available on iTunes (see source link).

I don't think the reactions would be very natural if the recipient knows that they're going to be recorded for 6 seconds plus having to touch the start button before every message would be annoying (if they had the app too), but I am curious as to what their reactions would be so this is an interesting app in a way.

You could have fun with this. Click accept and moon the camera. Have somebody completely different click accept and be recorded. Wouldn't it be cool to have a celebrity do that for you?
