A slight change in direction, introducing Socialblend for iOS!!

Jun 18th, 2013 by flingsoft

For the the past few months we’ve been hard at work on a whole new type of iOS app for Fling. It is a slight change in direction for us, but builds on our fundamental understanding of iOS and our own personal experiences. Sometimes, the best ideas come to you when you are trying to solve the simplest problems.

It all started when our Head of Creative expressed the unhappiness of opening various applications to do the same types of tasks. In particular, waking up in the morning to open Instagram, to like and comment on things, and then switching to Facebook to like and comment on things, and then over to Twitter and so. From there we started concepting and it grew and grew. The fundamental idea was simple, what if we can unify these tasks into a single common view. The result is Socialblend.


Socialblend allows you to connect your Facebook, Instagram Twitter, and YouTube accounts into a single place. Socialblend is about media, especially photos and videos, and it is a consumption service so while you can like and comment, you aren’t posting photos or status updates. It was designed to be a really simple and clean way to interact with your friends shared experiences regardless of the social platform they are using. And when you like or comment on something, it posts right back to that platform.

Our first release is just the beginning and we hope you enjoy it. We will be adding so much more in the future including deeper filtering, varying views, and even more services like Vimeo and Flickr. 

So give it a shot, its clean, easy to use, and best of all its free. Enjoy!

Download from iTunes

Oh and don’t worry, we aren’t done with video either…
