Twitter co-founder launches Tremendous, yet one more solution to share your opinion
A clever individual as soon as associated opinions to certainly one of many issues all of us have. And it is onerous not to think about that when taking a look at Tremendous, a brand new opinion sharing app launching as we speak for the iPhone and Android. Textual content prompts like “one of the best,” “the worst,” and “the craziest” invite you to shout your opinions to the world alongside a related photograph. Like Twitter, it rewards pithy textual content and intelligent wordplay. However photographs are simply as essential, making it really feel equally like Instagram. You’ll be able to even double-faucet on a publish to “like” it, a conduct that Instagram popularized. The extra I performed round with it, the extra Tremendous appeared a generator for these textual content-heavy posts that all the time appear a bit misplaced on Instagram. (And which inevitably get extra likes than my rigorously composed landscapes.)
Tremendous is value maintaining a tally of as a result of it comes from Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, who helped rework the straightforward concept of microblogging into one thing big. It is the second product from Stone’s new firm, Jelly, which launched a Q&A app earlier this yr. With enthusiasm cooling for that app (I truthfully forgot it existed till right now’s information), it isn’t terribly shocking to see Jelly taking one other stab at relevance.
Although his final app principally flopped, Stone does not appear to be stressing this launch an excessive amount of. “I’ve determined to not provide you with some slick and pithy advertising description for Tremendous,” he wrote in a weblog submit. “I am additionally not going to proclaim that it is the most revolutionary factor ever or that it is going to save the world. It isn’t, it is simply enjoyable.” (He writes “enjoyable” 5 occasions within the eighty one-phrase first paragraph of that publish.) With its brilliant colours and cute sound results, Tremendous virtually looks like it is making an attempt to cram the thought of “enjoyable” down our throats. It is clearly one thing concentrating on huge personalities, which can doubtless work in its favor. Do not be stunned if the app’s view of close by customers will get flooded with loads of consideration hogs.
