Moscow, Russia (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
Today, Russian developers Legendary Made and Redmadrobot unveil their digital manifesto, Manifest, an app described as a social weapon for iOS and Android users. Previously available only in the App Store, todays update to the application invites all smartphone users to become social activists in their communities by sharing their attitudes on everything around them.
The premise of the app is simple: take a photo with one of two buttons (one for a positive attitude toward the object and another for negative), tag the object in the photo, choose how to describe it - cool, awesome, fantastic etc. or dumb, stupid, lame etc. and share it. Photos are automatically turned into posters when they are shared across social media channels. Users can follow friends also using the app and agree or disagree with their posts. As users share manifests, their points of view are aggregated into trends, making it easy to see the overall sentiment for an object.
Manifest is not about sharing photos, it's about reacting to the world. We made it very easy - you just point your smartphone camera on something and react by pressing one of two buttons, that's it. There are thousands of things happening around, and when millions of people speak up about one certain thing - that means this thing is important for the world, and we have it as a trend which clearly shown society's attitude. Manifest is a direct channel for people to speak, and nobody falsifies their voices. That's why Manifest is a social weapon, says Vitaliy Smorodin, Manifest Co-founder.
New features of Manifest include:
Re-designed clear user interface
Improved algorithm behind trends
Ability to choose preset words to describe an image or type in your own
Turn posts to posters and share with friends on Facebook and Twitter
