Exclusive iOS release features seamless sharing of image, text and audio content across major networks and an ad-free, privacy-focused environment
BOSTON – Jan. 16, 2013 – Digisocial, Inc. today launched its social sharing app for iOS, introducing a new way for users to share content and connect globally. Now available for free on the App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/digisocial/id529473443?mt=8), Digisocial is an audio-enabled, always ad-free social sharing app that combines the best elements of social tools with the power of voice, in an experience that is as private or public as a user chooses. The app’s audio capabilities allow users to create and share content in new ways, with tools like “VoicePhotos.” Shareable publicly or privately on the Digisocial network, Facebook and Twitter, VoicePhotos are high-resolution images with high-definition audio recordings attached. VoicePhotos can be used to quickly and conveniently share audio commentary alongside pictures, or in other innovative ways such as adding a live music sample to a photo of a band in action.
VoicePhotos, text and audio content can be shared publicly on the Digisocial network, Facebook and Twitter, or privately with specific users and custom groups ranging from handfuls of friends to thousands of people around the world, in four clicks or less. Built to combine the best capabilities of modern devices with popular social content, Digisocial lets users add stylized filters to images, chat with friends, meet new people, search trending topics and images, locate nearby users with similar interests (optionally), and more.
“So many of our day-to-day social interactions are now online – yet, despite the massive popularity and success of social networking, these interactions and conversations still tend to be based on a technology now decades old: texting,” said David Guo, co-founder of Digisocial. “I think people are really starting to voice their frustration with certain social platforms that only innovate in order to make more money off the user and increase advertising profit. We built Digisocial as an alternate to these platforms – an ad-free way for people to ‘share different,’ using all the capabilities of modern smartphones.”
Designed to deliver one consistent but flexible social experience, Digisocial does not support ads or promoted content, will never sell users’ information or content to third parties, and allows seamless sharing to Facebook and Twitter.
Key features include:
- VoicePhotos and Audio Commenting: Hold a touch-screen button to instantly record and upload high-definition audio to images and text, providing a new way to share and express yourself when simple texting and instant messaging don’t cut it
- 100% free, private and ad-free: All features are accessible for no charge, and users will only see real content from real people: Digisocial does not support ads or promoted posts. The app only tracks the data users elect to provide, and Digisocial will never sell users’ content or data to third parties
- Customizable chat groups: Create and participate in custom groups that scale from a few individuals to thousands of people around the world, sharing VoicePhotos and chatting about favorite subjects
- High-quality technical back-end: VoicePhotos are played back virtually and instantly in HD audio. Additionally, a multi-layer server set up ensures minimal downtime when traffic is high
