Independent developer Shane Byrnes announces the release of The Connect 1.0. The Connect is a social networking app that combines the feeds from your favorite social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn, into one easy, convenient and Free iPhone and iPad app. Users can also post updates, photos and videos to your social networks simultaneously or individually with just the press of a button.
As a user you can view your social media feeds separately or together in the 'All Networks' feed. From within the app users can Retweet, Reply, Like or Comment on any update that you'd like as well as message a specific user. Users can also view other individuals profile pages from all of their social networks. Searching for users is made easy and one search can return results from all social networks. Gone are the days of having to open and close multiple apps just to stay connected with friends and followers. The Connect even includes features that are not available on Instagram's own app. Features such as the ability to view Instagram images full screen on the iPhone and iPad!
Convenience and ease of use were two important factors when developing this app. With over one billion social media users worldwide there was no better place to increase convenience. Unlike other semi-comparable apps on the market, The Connect offers a simple layout that allows anyone to easily use the app effectively. This app can almost completely replace up to four other apps. Go ahead and throw those other apps into a folder and tuck them away and replace them with The Connect.
Although the apps are released it does not mean that development is done. The Connect will continue to be developed. More features, social medias and localized languages will progressively be added.
The Connect 1.0 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Social Networking category. For those users that don't want the ads, The Connect Plus is available for $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies).
