Talk Wheel – Discuss your Passions: Written iPhone App Review
Talkwheel – Discuss your Passions is an app from Talkwheel.com Inc. for the iOS platform. The point of Talk Wheel is to provide a way to share what is going on in your life and what you’re passionate about. The app provides a way to have meaningful and perhaps even deep discussions based around things you like or enjoy. It’s sort of like Facebook, but much deeper and meaningful. Talk Wheel is one of the newest social networking apps that integrates family and friends into deep discussions.
The features of Talk Wheel are pretty cool. For one, you can have a discussion within the app. By commenting, you can have interesting discussions with another person, which rarely happens on other social networking sites. You can also invite family and friends to try the app. This helps make the app grow and bring more interaction to it’s servers. You can even share pictures too! So the app isn’t text only, which is good for people that are visual people. Talk Wheel also has the ability to sort out the most popular comments, which is a real plus. You can also favorite groups that you’re interested in so you can be a bigger part of the ongoing discussions.
The design of Talk Wheel is pretty unique. It flows pretty well, but needs an update to really reach it’s potential. For one, someone of the buttons are covered up by other buttons, and this can create confusion for the user. The interface doesn’t appear to be natively iOS and the app feels a bit like an Android application. That being said, it’s still pretty cool. It’s a breeze to navigate around the app, and it’s difficult to get lost or confused. The app even has a greeting screen when you open the app to get you familiar with how the app works. Theres also the added bonus of the app being optimized for the iPhone 5, so you know your getting an application that is pretty recently developed. The developers claim to have over 3 millions users, but I suspect that’s for a non-iOS version.
Overall the app is pretty cool and offers some potential to have meaningful discussions. The design could use a little work, but it’s functional enough to get by. Talk Wheel has some great features that could really benefit you, and a design that works. I would highly recommend using Talk Wheel, because it’s optimized for the iPhone 5 and it’s free! In total, great app.
Talkwheel – Discuss your Passions is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for the iPhone 5.
