AppDictions App Review
You could argue that at this moment, there’s nothing more popular than social networking sites Facebook and Twitter. To a lesser extent, there’s also Tumblr, Flicker and many others that have found a comfortable, lucrative niche in the World Wide Web. These success stories have inspired endless developers to try their hand at social networking as well. Some have been successful, others not so much, but we can be sure we are far from seeing the last of ‘em.
A new social sharing platform that is sure to gain a lot of buzz is iThrowU. It applies the basic concepts as other applications—you can share photographs or text messages with everyone on the same app. But it has a couple of twists that might actually make it big.
Users receive or “catch” random images or messages from somewhere in the world. They now have the option to review them; rate them and “throw” them back or drop them if you don’t think it is interesting enough to share. You may throw your own material as well; you’ll be immersed in the app, trying to get as many ratings as possible and avoiding getting dropped.
The option to “throw” is the heart of iThrowU. It makes the app much more fun, especially since you do it by mimicking the action of throwing in real life. This will make you feel more important, and the virtual community much more tangible.
Other features add depth to the interesting concept. Share humorous images by replacing your friends’ faces with funny props available in the app. You can track the things you’ve thrown—it’s exciting seeing just where it ended up next. Check out the most interesting items that have been shared with the Top Ten board.
