If Snapchat, WhatsApp, and old-school Facebook had a child, the result would likely be Peach, a new social media app that’s making some noise online. Created by the founder of Vine, Peach initially looks like just another messaging app, but there are a few key twists that make it a force to be reckoned with.
Peach allows you to share updates, thoughts, photos, and more with a network of people chosen by you. What makes it different from social media sites like Facebook is that you choose who you share certain updates with rather than sharing with your entire network of friends. The recipients of those updates can respond to them in a variety of ways.
One of the things people love most about Peach is the series of “magic words” that allow you to perform different actions. These commands aren’t given to you straight away, but are gradually discovered over time as you use the app. For example, typing “gif” will bring up a custom keyboard that lets you search for reaction GIFs. Typing “here,” on the other hand, lets you enter your current location to let friends know where you are. Want to share a masterpiece with a buddy? Simply type “draw” to access a drawing pad.
And remember the “poke” days on Facebook? Peach puts their own spin on the idea by letting you send certain actions to your friends at anytime. From a friendly wave to throwing cake, you can interact with your Peach friends through these whimsical actions.
Peach is an app that dares to be different—so it’s no surprise that they chose to use the URL peach.cool for their website. Using the New Domain .COOL not only allowed them to get a short, memorable web address, but also further establishes them as a a company that’s hip and not afraid to leverage new technology.
You can try out Peach for yourself by downloading it from your mobile device’s App Store for free.
