Here are our picks for the most underrated social media apps available to smartphone users.
Everyone’s heard of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. But what about these five excellent under-the-radar social media apps that you could be chatting up this instant?
Rex is a mobile app available for iPhone users that allows you to relay and receive word-of-mouth recommendations from friends and family. Instantly share recommendations and advice about everything from travel destinations and restaurants to your favorite books and movies, and see what’s trending at any given moment on the app.
Pushbullet transfers all of your social media notifications seamlessly between your devices. According to Lifehacker, “[Pushbullet] automatically sends all your phone notifications over to your computer in the form of little windows. Not only that, you can take actions on them with a click. Snooze alarms, archive emails, dismiss Facebook alerts, or just mute certain types of notifications so you never see them on your computer again.”
Developers are constantly updating the app to provide both iPhone and Android users with new features to efficiently manage their social media from their PC, laptop, or tablet.
Quik makes editing your GoPro footage easier than ever. The free-to-download mobile app automatically selects the best videos and photos from your camera roll and syncs them with the music of your choice. You can choose from 28 different video styles that combine seamless transitions, effects, and graphics to create a one-of-a-kind video in a matter of minutes.
While not a “social media” app per se, using Quik guarantees that the videos you upload on any social platform will leave your friends and followers blown away.
Storehouse is a mobile storytelling app that gives users the ability to combine photos and videos to create visually compelling “stories” that can be shared between friends, family, and other Storehouse users. Named “The Best Mobile Application” in 2015 by TechCrunch, Storehouse provides iPhone and Android users a slick visual interface to produce professional quality content instantly.
UPDATE: Sadly, Storehouse plans to shut down on July 15, but hopefully there’s still time for all the fans out there to change their minds!
You might’ve heard of this one, but there’s no doubt that Venmo deserves a lot more attention. For the unfamiliar, it’s a mobile app available to both iPhone and Android users that simplifies exchanging money between friends. The secure financial app allows users to instantly transfer funds between their respective bank accounts with the press of a button. Sending rent money to your roommate or splitting a bill at dinner has never been easier thanks to this simple app.
With billions of mobile apps downloaded worldwide each year, according to Statista, breaking into the market with your own unique social media app may seem like an intimidating prospect. Luckily, developing smartphone apps doesn’t require a computer science degree or any previous programming knowledge at all. With a platform like AppMakr, anyone can build creative and highly functional apps using an easy-to-use interface. Avoid massive programming costs and save time by utilizing this simple DIY platform.
