We all know that Social networks have become very popular lately, and developers have created a huge number of smartphone apps to support them and to make the virtual life of social media addicts much easier. The App Store holds hundreds of social media apps, and most likely you’ve already tried some of them – almost all social media fans know about apps like Facebook, Skype, Twitter, HootSuite, Sociable and Meebo.
However, the same App Store can offer you many other social media apps that are less famous but still very good and easy to use. I decided to try some of the apps most of us haven’t even heard about and sort out the best ones among them. And here’s what I found:
Path is a nice free app that lets you share your thoughts, current mood or the music you’re listening to with your friends. You can even use it to upload pics and videos and share them via your favorite social networks, or update your blogs and networks directly from this app.
Path supports an impressive number of languages including English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish, and it’s a really useful app for the social media addicts all over the world.
Pair is a more romantic (if I can say so) app designed for couples – it enables you to stay in touch with the one you love, share different things with each other, play Tic-Tac-Toe or even video chat. Since the app creates a timeline especially for two of you, everything will be private there – nobody else will see what you’re posting or discussing. You can even use the app to do stupid but romantic things like touching the screen on the same spot. But it can also be used for more practical things like creating to-do lists or setting reminders for different things and dates.
Most social networks and their apps give you the opportunity to share photos and videos, but there aren’t many that can enable you to share music or different noises. I guess Soundcloud was created to fill that space – you can now record any sounds, noises or music and share it via your favorite networks. You can also like and comment the sounds posted by others – that’s what makes this app more “social”. And the best thing is – you can download it for free.
4. Color Text Messages Lite
Color Text Messages Lite is a fun social media app that can help you send colorful text messages or updates to your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and many other accounts. You can choose the text and background colors, different fonts and textures, and your text will really stand out thanks to this app. The app was available for $1.99 before, but right now you can download it for free.
Apple’s iTunes holds many apps that can make avatars for your social networking sites, and Uface is one of them. For only $0.99 it can create really nice and realistic avatars that look like pics drawn by professionals.
6. WeeMee Avatar Creator
Just like the previous app, WeeMee Avatar creator can help you make custom avatars for your social networks, but if the avatars created by Uface are black-and-white, as if drawn by a pencil, these ones are colorful and cartoon-like. The app can be downloaded for $0.99 and it includes more than 300 free items (like clothes, accessories, drinks, sports items and so on) that can help to make your avatar look more like you.
