When you like a certain musician, you tend to listen to their music a lot, perk up if someone mentions him or her and try to make it to at least one concert. When you’re a die-hard fan, on the other hand, you listen to your favorite artists’ music every day, follow them on all forms of social media and hangout with others like you who are mega-fans.
Concept and Functionality:
Yapert is an app that lets you follow the celebrities you like at the touch of a button. There are profiles for just about any celebrity (everyone from Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys to Austin Mahone) and they usually come up on your automatically-generated newsfeed if you scroll down enough.
Can’t find who you’re looking for? If you swipe right, you can use the search bar at the top to find just about anyone out there.
If you find that you really like some of the photos and tweets you see when scrolling, you can click on the photo to see it up-close, then tap the icon of the stacked photos to save into your “stacks,” or your categorized collection of media (yes, there are also videos!).
From there, you can also share the photos you like on social media, or comment on a photo about your favorite celebrity’s hairstyle or dress.
To follow a celebrity’s activities and different crowd-sourced posts, all you need to do is turn the star on at the top right. Doing this will add them to your favorites, a personal feed of everyone you’ve starred. A celebrity’s profile also features their posts (pulled from Twitter), all of his or her fans and some of the resources you can use to get more information about the celebrity, such as his or her iTunes or Twitter.
When it comes to Yapert, it’s not just about traditional celebrities in film and television. This app offers more than 3,000 of the biggest names in music, sports, entertainment, fashion, fitness and lifestyle. And with millions of trending photos and videos, you won’t be missing out at all
However, if you prefer to customize your feed more, you can go to settings, check out all of the categories that Yapert offers, select what you like best from each one and then enjoy your new and improved feed.
If you ever need help with the app, Yapert has a great help page that explains just about everything within the app.
Yapert caters to a really cool group of people. A lot of fans tend to focus on just people who are interested in, or like, a certain something. For Yapert, however, these people are die-hard fans of their idols, and want to keep up-to-date about them as much as possible.
Sure, even though I’m not a huge fan of anyone in particular (I am a huge fan of corgis and pugs, on the other hand), I can definitely see this app getting very, very popular — a gift for all of the loyal fans out there!
Yapert requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
