New Social Media Platform launching in beta — Touch Social for Android. Will you join?
My first interaction with Touch Social ($TST) was when they followed me on twitter. I try to always keep my eyes and ears open to new projects, especially the blockchain ones.
First thing I did, I visited their website and received some information, something I usually check when they have team information is if the team members are real people with real activity.
After signing up to join the beta, I waited patiently and was very surprised to receive a direct message with information about the newly launched app at the playstore
The app is currently only available for Android users, apparently they will complete the IOS version soon.
Download the app
Here is the link https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=xyz.touchsocial.app and you can also visit their website for more information
As I see, there is an option to connect with Phone Number and this is what I will do for now.
They are asking the user to select the country and add their telephone number so that you will receive an sms with a code to use.
Enter the code you receive as an sms and you get to continue
Entering your profile information.
What is requested:
- Full Name
- username (maximum 9 characters)
- Date of birth
I received an error” Maximum username length should be 9 letters” when I entered my katerinaramm and finally I entered my other username (very first actually) katycrete
Then, you should enter your password and you are all set!
It was strange for me that I saw no limitation in characters, and also no notification for strong or weak password.
After completing the above steps, user is asked if they have a wallet or if they need to create a new one. I created one for the app. You will need to have an ERC-20 Wallet to enter.
In case you create a wallet, make sure you copy paste the recovery phrase and save it at a safe place as it cannot be recovered!
After you set up your wallet, you find yourself at a screen that looks a little like murmur, only better. It was easy to find you way through but it could be improved.
For starters, you are asked if you wish to post a photo or text. I selected a photo and I got to either choose or capture something and post it.
It was not clear where I should post the hashtags or if there was any limitation in words.
It will take sometime to read the questions, explore, follow users and discover content. Is it twitter like? Is is Instagram like? What purposes will it serve? What kind of users will it manage to gather?
This is the main interface
