A very real question arises when we talk about Social Media. How much is too much? While most of us love to share our thoughts and feelings through our respective social outlets, some people seem to live online. I’ve seen people with 200,000 tweets via Twitter, and that sparkling little ‘200K’ never ceases to blow my mind.
If you’re looking to free up some mental space by consolidating your Social Media, look no further than Social Point. Social Point, for all intents and purposes, is an aggregation app, that hopes to make your life easier by moving your favorite outlets into a single place.
Registration on the app is easy, and your download is lightning fast at under 40MB. Once you get in, you’ll want to immediately sync with your select Social Media accounts, or the entire app will be barren. The App is broken into “Feed”, “Filters”, “Post”, “Search”, and “More”. The ability to connect with your established networks is there, but is a bit hidden in the ambiguous “More” section. We’d like to see that prompt which encourages syncing to be prompted with first login.
Otherwise, the app is functional, not maximalist but not too sparse either.
Concept and Functionality: [Rating:4.5/5]
The concept is sound, although the aesthetic needs work. We’ve got some generic templates going on in this app, but with the dollar price tag, we should be getting an aesthetically exceptional experience. Even better yet, why not customizable? The app is off to a great start, but we’re most exciting to see what direction it goes in next. A cleaner, quieter build could invite more users, and a free download option with an optional $0.99 purchase could elicit a far bigger audience. Food for thought.
Overall Value: [Rating:4.5/5]
Do you absolutely need to spend a dollar on this app? It depends; how much do you use Social Media? If you’ve tried other social content aggregators before, you know what to look for. Ease of use, fluidity, and the ability to actually save time when making a post. This app boasts most everything it needs to stand out, but could certainly use some finishing touches to fully justify the download.
What do YOU think? We’d love to hear your comments, try it and let us know!
