Developed by Microsoft Research FUSE Labs, Socl — pronounced social — lets you create, collect, and share stuff you love. From rich visual collages to short animated media and memes, Socl gives you a creative outlet through posts that take seconds to create, collect, and share on Socl, as well as other social networks.
Microsoft Research has just released the companion app for Socl for Windows Phone. Prior to this release, the Socl website was the only way to post or share content from your mobile device.
The app gives you the ability to quickly create image collages and animated memes, and share them with your friends and family. You can also organize content into collections and manage your posts within the app. The app gives you notifications about community activity on the content you like.
In the brief time I spent with the app, I found that it isn’t a smooth experience and I lost a couple posts that appeared as if they went through. Clearly, there are some issues that need to be ironed in the upcoming updates.
You can download the free companion app for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. If you are on Socl already, it’s a great app to create and share content, and if you aren’t, the app might just be an interesting incentive for you to have a look. Let us know how you like the app.
