Of course, to use Starlike, you first have to connect any or all of your accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. The app then lets you view your friends’ faves and likes in a single easy-to-browse feed, enabling you to see interesting stuff outside your friends’ own posts.
Starlike also offers a couple of “meta” features, which let you fave faves or like likes, as it were. First, it lets you fave or like something in the feed and have it show up on your favorites or likes on the corresponding social network. And second, it lets you tap the Starlike icon on something to save it to the Starlike section within the Starlike app.
Another bonus feature of Starlike is the ability to mute certain users, who are perhaps too “like button-happy,” so that their favorites or likes don’t show up in the app.
Starlike is a likable enough app in its initial iteration. But it’s likely to be more likable if, like the all but dearly departed Favs, it would support more social networks.
