WNM Live: iPhone Written App Review
Looking for a new way to get your social network on? We’ve found the perfect app. It’s called WNM Live, and it rocks. This cross-platform app from WNM Live lets you connect with folks all over the world, or people just down the road. Want to know what makes this app special? Our iPhone app review of WNM Live will give you all the juicy details.
There are several different ways to enjoy the WNM Live iPhone app. You can create and log in to a personal profile, filling it with as much or as little personal info as you’d like, or you can connect the app to Facebook, where your profile is automatically created and you can actually use it to reach out to your FB friends.
Or, if you’d rather not put yourself out there just yet, you can even leave your profile anonymous and see what’s out there. We think this is a really nice touch, because sometimes you want to figure out what an app’s all about before you fill out your personal info. But, trust us, you’re gonna want to get in on this social action.
WNM Live isn’t about how many friends you can add to a list, it’s about connecting to whoever you want. The app lets you watch a public, local stream of updates, send text and picture messages, upload photos and tell the world what’s on your mind, all without any ads or any cost.
Our favorite thing about WNM Live is the network it taps into. This isn’t some fly-by-night production. There are actually 350,000 users on WNM Live already. The sweet iPhone app is just icing on the cake.
Layout & Design:
WNM Live organizes streams in several different ways, so it’s easy to find your own posts or ones you comment on, check out what’s going on nearby or see what your favs are up to. The people search section could use an actual search bar that supports looking for certain names, otherwise it’s a cool feature and, like other sections of the app, it is highly customizable.
The conversation layout’s also pretty sweet. It looks a lot like a regular text convo would on the iPhone, so users will be familiar with this. We do wish the app had different skins for a customized feel.
Considering this is WNM Live’s first iPhone app, we think they hit it out of the park. The drag to update interface works like a charm, so does the pinch to zoom feature on photos. The app is full of customizable settings. Push and email notifications work perfectly, a little too well if you ask us. Even after changing the alert settings for new messages in the app we still received emails every time an event happened. Not sure if this was caused by a communication delay, but it was a little annoying.
If you’re looking for a new way to meet people, keep in touch and get social, WNM Live’s iPhone app is definitely a must download. After all, it’s free.
WNM Live iPhone app requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
