Keek has released an app for Windows Phone. If you're not familiar with the name, Keek (www.keek.com) is essentially a social video sharing service, already available on other platforms. It's an easy way to meet people, stay up to date with friends and show followers what you're up to. The feature that will please consumers is the ability to capture, record and share a video update in seconds.
The free Windows Phone app not only allows users to upload and share footage recorded on their smartphones, but also to view and share other people's work on the service too. The interface and layout is quite nice, considering it's not strictly following the Modern UI. While we'd like to see more elements implemented to bring the app up to speed with better looking apps on the Windows Phone Store, Keek's off to a strong start indeed.
Text and video comments can be published on other videos, and yes you can "like" everything you want! Subscriptions can be added should you find a cat video that you just can't stop watching, but you can also follow other users so it's a slight mix between Twitter and YouTube in a weird way. That said, it's a service that many will come to love and enjoy - especially if you're one to share short clips with friends and strangers.
The app is completely free and there's no cap on how many uploads you can process and publish, which is nice. If you're more into instant messaging rather than full video, fear not as Keek has you covered with built-in instant messaging. Verified accounts are also a feature to ensure you know that people are who they say they are. It's a neat service with some interesting social features, well worth checking out.
You can download Keek from the Windows Phone Store (listed for Windows Phone 8 only). Thanks everyone who tipped us!
