Secret, the iOS app for anonymously sharing secrets, will expand soon. The app, which is currently only available in the U.S., will be rolling out to users in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.  “Secret is coming soon to the UK, Ireland and Oz,” the company tweeted Monday. A TechCrunch report later revealed that New Zealand would also be among the first countries to get the app outside the U.S.
