- Lots of Photo filters
- Easy to share photos
- Save photos that are special to you

Snapchat is one of the more personal App I will discuss today. Even going so far to add Friendship Profiles so you and your friends can look back on all the moments and memories you have shared together. You can also see what things you can in common or even compare your astrological compatibility. How crazy is that!?
Snapchat is super accessible for creators too, simply tap a button, take a photo, edit the photo and finally upload it. You can go nuts and add a bunch of filters too, if you want that extra sparkle, or maybe add something a little spooky in the background or even give yourself cat ears, there are a huge variety of effects to express yourself with.
Another handy feature is with the Snapchat Stories. This is a great way to keep up to date with the current new stories and can be shared amongst your friends, or you can watch some Snapchat original TV shows. You can even start a video chat with you friends and watch those shows at the same time. It’s a great way to experience different things together.
For anyone looking to have a more in depth friendship oriented App, Snapchat is a great choice. Even if it’s just to show off a bunch of silly selfies or to discuss something a little more serious, Snapchat has so much to offer that you are sure to find something that will make it the go to App for you and your friends.
No.4 Truth Social
- Up and coming App
- Great way to keep in contact
- Much more personalised than the usual Apps
- Search for people’s opinions that match your own
Truth Social is an interesting App with a focus on a person’s speech and viewpoints more so than viral videos. It’s also one of the newest Apps on this list and as of writing it currently only available to a select few with thousands of users being kept on a waiting list.
Truth Social has a unique idea in trying to interact a community as a whole. By grouping people together based on their beliefs it tries to cater the content and discussion to that specific group’s tastes. If done right this can be a highly effectively App and a great way to meet new people who share your interests and ideology.
Truth Social has you create your won profile and include a lot more of your unique personality that almost any other App in recent memory. It almost feels like a dating App but for your thoughts, matching other people who share similar ideas to then get you chatting together. You can also use the Truth Search feature to delve deeper into this process.
As mentioned Truth Social is a very new to market App but it is definitely one to keep your eye on in the future. So why not get yourself on the waiting list for what looks to be a very different type of of sharing platform. One for your thoughts instead of photos.
- Offers freedom to speak your mind
- Promotes live streams as well as uploading photos and videos
- Constant updates and new features
- Boasts an uncensored platform
GETTR is another new App and oddly enough also looks to allow it’s users to speak their mind without any worry of censorship. Explicitly stating that it will never suspend or censoor your views or posts. Beyond this GETTR offers a lot of features from day one.
GETTR’s want for people to express themselves allows users to create much longer written posts than other social media Apps. Not only this but it’s already allowing people to live stream for up to 60 minutes at a time and giving each video post a limit of 3 minutes instead of the usual 60 seconds.
Another huge plus side to GETTR is how they are constantly looking at feedback from their users to add new features or improve their experience. Such as raising the limit of uploading photos from 1 photo per post to 6 photos. You can even edit these photos within the App itself instead of having to do it beforehand. GETTR also gives users the ability to contact their family and friends via direct messages.
GETTR is a very promising App and while it may have a few hiccups due to only being a few months old, the changes and updates made in such a short time already, gives me a lot of optimism for the future of this App. So if you want a more uncongested App that is on the rise, GETTR is the one for you.
So there you have it. 5 Apps all about sharing your thoughts, memories and viewpoints. It’s impressive to see how each App offers something different and even if they do share some similar features, they all go about it a different way. I hope you enjoy this selection of Apps, I know the newer Apps especially intrigued me.
