“Manifest” for iOS (App Store link) is a new social media app that allows users to take photos of what they think is cool or dumb, and share it with the rest of the world. The app is designed to encourage user interaction through a bold design. You can use your Facebook, Twitter, or email account to begin using Manifest, and then immediately begin digging into the pictures that have been uploaded to the app. You can then rate pictures a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” depending on if you like the topic at hand and if you agree with what the original uploader has said.
The app sports a very bold design with thick lettering and big buttons. We really enjoyed the app’s design because of its simplicity, but bold statement. Things performed quick and everything was readily accessible and easy to use. The pictures uploaded to the app are from a broad range of categories, from “Barack Obama” to “Tel Aviv, Israel.” Social engagement between users is a major part of the app, and seems to work pretty well.
The home screen of the app are the trending topics on Manifest at that time. The next screen holds content from people you follow. The third screen is the actual camera section of the app, allowing users to take their own photos and upload them. The following screen are your notifications, and the final screen is your detailed user profile.
