Dom Hoffman, the founder of Vine has created a new messaging app for the iPhone users – Peach that lets you find your friends and upload gif images, photos, and status updates in your news feed using “magic words”.
Although, similar to other messaging apps like Twitter, Slack, but the new app has a unique feature that makes it stand out of the box. We, it’s a pretty slick app, that engages something like Slack commands and Peach calls them “Magic words.”
For example, you can type “gif” and then you are prompted to find and share a gif image. Similarly, when a user types “Draw” he can actually draw a doodle or sketch to share it. You can type “song” to share whatever is playing right now on your phone.
“Peach is a refreshingly fun and simple way to keep up with friends and be yourself. Share tiny updates as you go through your day. Posting is as easy as texting ‘with a twist’. Some words are ‘Magic Words’ that give you quick access to fun and insightful things to share. On Peach, a little says a lot. Easily share pictures, looping photos, videos, and links, along with GIFs, the weather, your current location, what you’re watching tonight, how many steps you walked today, and much more,” the app’s description read on the App Store.
Also, all the updates are posted on “home” – similar to a Facebook wall where people can “like” or comment on your posts. The app is just for IOS now, but we can expect the app on other platforms in the coming months.
