Keek: Written iPhone App Review

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Sometimes social networking needs a little kick these days. Why not turn it up a notch and stay connected with friends and family with video type social networking? The Keek app from developer Keek Inc. will do just that for you. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and runs on iOS 4.1 or later.

Features:

When the user initially loads Keek, they will be prompted to login with their Facebook account, or sign up or login with their email address. Please note that since these types of logins are required, the user will need to have access to internet connection.

Upon login, the user will have access to the main menu functions such as “Home” Search”, “New Keek”, “My Profile”, and “Saved”. From these the user can view the latest “keeks”, check out “keeks” from other featured users, and so on.

The purpose of this app is to help the user to connect with their friends and loved ones via video updates no matter where they are around the world. With unlimited video uploads, these short videos can be uploaded rather quickly, and can be shared via SMS, email, and other social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. Just like blogs, comments from users can be enabled, and even “keekbacks” which are video replies and comments can also be done to help users stay better connected with others.

Appearance and Layout:

The overall layout of Keek is well done.  It is simple, and very easy to navigate. No instructions are needed, and the app’s appearance with its easy to read font and obvious subject headers will appeal to all users of all ages. With a non-distracting color schemed background, the main emphasis will be on the videos that the user uploads and views, and the user themselves.

Value:

For being Keek offered free, it is a pretty good bargain. Although there are other video related apps out available in the app market today, this app does cater simplicity and appeal. This app is not only easy for anyone to use, but it does work with a lot of other popular social networks which many users have accounts with today. People always want to maintain connections with their friends or family, and sometimes words are just not enough. This app will be able to put a picture with a face, and make others feel like they are really there with their loved ones in person.

Keek iPhone app requires iOS 4.1 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. The iPhone app reviews rating: [Rating: 4.5/5]
