Peach -A Quick Tour


What is Peach?

It’s a new social networking app that was developed by the creators of Vine. The interface is very reminiscent of your standard text messaging app. Nothing complex for you to learn, you can almost jump in and start using it.

After you create your Peach account and add friends, you will be greeted by your feed full of posts. From here you will be able to post updates, photos and videos. Pretty simple.

To add a photo, tap on the camera icon. You can either take a photo with the in-app camera, or just choose a photo from your camera roll. You will be given the option to add a comment to your post.

Don’t have anything interesting to share? No worries, Peach has you covered. If you tap on the light bulb icon, it will generate a random question to answer and you will be able to post the question along with the answer. It’s a nice way to break the ice, in my opinion.

To check your notifications, you will need to tap on the speech bubble with the heart in the middle, which is located at the top right corner. When you have unread messages or other notifications, it will colored pink.

You can also manage your friends/followers list from the notifications menu.

Now your main feed. All posts by your friends are organized by threads. Similar to what you see in your text messaging app, but unlike a text message thread, your friends’ threads are visible you and also to their followers.

Tapping on the thread will reveal their posts. From here you will be able to comment and like their content. You can also favorite people. To do this, go to their thread in your main feed and tap on the star icon located at the top right of the screen. You can favorite up to 20 people.

Initially, if you needed to privately message someone on Peach, you had to resort to use a variety of messaging apps (Kik, Telegram, Snapchat to name a few), which was quite messy since most people don’t use the same messaging app. But a major update was released that brought in private chats. Just swipe left to bring up the chats. You can send photos and also stickers.

Peach also offers some limited customization options. By limited, I mean you can change the background. It’s not much, but it’s definitely more customization than other social networking apps.

This is pretty much is just the basics of the Peach app. You can visit Peach’s main page at http://peach.cool for more information. The app is available for both iOS and Android. You can add me as a friend on Peach: @UtopicUnicorn
