A university graduate has created an app that he hopes will spark lively debate.

Harry Bradshaw designed the app, called SoapBox, as his final year project at Middlesex University. It encourages people to share and debate issues, while focusing on the topics and not the individuals discussing them.

Harry, 22, who lives in East Barnet, said: “I think it’s a real shame that in a world filled with technology and gadgets, we’re losing the ability to converse proficiently.

“I wanted to harness technology in a way that actually encouraged conversation and debate. I call it ‘talk radio for the texting generation’ - a mix of the behaviours involved in both texting and debating.”

The product design graduate has big plans for his app, which he hopes will appeal to a wide range of people, including news channels, political shows and even MPs.
