Socialeyes, the “spontaneous activities” application for Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch, has received a nice update making a wide-ranging number of changes to the free application.
Aside from a complete change in branding and faster sign-ups for iPhone owners, Socialeyes now boasts a brand new (and much nicer) user interface that’s far more minimalistic than the previous version of the application. Hand in hand with this more refined user interface is a simpler posting feature, improved friend invitations, and social profiles for users. In fact, a slew of changes have been made in version 2.0.0 of the app, including:
- Complete change in branding
- Total user interface change
- Simplified posting feature
- Introduction of gamification concept and leaderboard
- Social profile of the user added
- Advanced notification system
- New activities added
- Improved friend invitation
- Joining to an activity feature
- No need to mention a friend on comment section for a conversation
- Faster signup and intro
That being said, the kind of results Socialeyes pulls up are – at least here, in England – a little wacky. After testing the app, it seems Socialeyes presents the same, or at least a fairly similar, set of results each time users choose a search category – regardless of the category itself. For example, supermarkets, gyms, beauty salons, and mechanics are all listed under Socialeyes’ “Movies” category.
Perhaps our readers on the other side of the pond will have better luck with the application. The good news is that Socialeyes is indeed available free of charge on the App Store, making it worth the download.
As mentioned, the app is optimized for the iPhone and iPod touch only.
