If you're looking for a simpler take on a social network, a new app called Peach may be worth checking out. Peach is a new social networking app that has gained a bit of traction over the last few days for its simplicity and fun interactions. The app encourages users to stick with small interactions by sharing a quick picture, GIF, video and more by using and discovering keywords. Here's a quick breakdown:
Need inspiration for what to post? Tap the lightbulb for new ideas every day.
Let someone know you're thinking of them by sending a wave, slice of cake, 100, boop, kiss, hiss, and more.
Use the magic word "shout" to write a few words (+ emoji) in BIG letters on a background color.
Use "draw" to post a doodle or sketch.
Use "song" to share whatever's playing right now. Friends can tap on the song to open it in Apple Music or Spotify.
The magic word "rate" lets you give anything—anything!— a 1-5 star rating.
Other magic words: gif, here, goodmorning, goodnight, battery, weather, move, meetings, safari, dice, time, date, movie, tv, and game. With more on the way.
It's certainly no Facebook or Twitter, but that's also part of the app's charm. Making a new post is a lot like sending a text, and whatever you decide to share ends up on your "space." There is no all-encompasing newsfeed, but you can access different friends' spaces individually to see what they're up to throughout the day.
