Peach, which launched on the Apple store Thursday, is a new microblogging social platform designed to keep you connected with friends in a new and seriously fun way.
Similar to Facebook, Peach allows you to “friend” people you know and post status updates to keep them apprised of your goings-on. Unlike Facebook, however, accessing and posting multimedia (like GIFs, videos, and music) does not require outsourcing to a second site — it can all be done directly through the app.
Via the interface, which looks similar to a text, you can post short statuses or enter “magic words” to automatically update your feed. Typing “here” will geo-tag your location and send it to friends, while writing “song” will share whatever you're listening to at the moment in an interactive player. There are currently 20 “magic words,” all with different functions — and more will likely be added as the app continues to surge in popularity.
Check out Peach, below, and download for free on the App Store.
