Social media apps are a big deal these days. That’s pretty obvious to anyone who can breathe air and eat food. But for the most part, social media apps are a lot alike.

At the end of the day, there’s nothing that really makes the majority of these apps different from one another. They all do the same type of thing, with the same basic purpose. However, every once in a while, a new app is designed that gives a whole new meaning to the word “social.”

Dusk

Dusk is a live-streaming app, but it’s a little different than the live-streaming apps you’re probably accustomed to using.

Instead of sharing your personal details, face, and social profiles with a group of individuals you may or may not know, all you share are your thoughts. The app will pixelate the screen and mask your voice.

Dusk says their app is a way to share your thoughts and ideas without being spammed, trolled, or ridiculed in the process – something many social media outlets have failed at. The team at Dusk does everything they can to keep the content on their app clean. For example, they restrict specific keywords from the comment section to keep things from getting offensive. They also allow you to mute and block users (without their knowledge).

According to TechCrunch, early adopters of the app are using the outlet to speak on sensitive subjects, like depression, politics, and addiction – subjects that typically face much criticism.

Momento

Twitter does one thing. Instagram does another. And Facebook does something entirely different. Photos in your phone serve one purpose, while notes serve another. The point is that you have so many memories happening and activities occurring at once that it can be hard to keep track of it all. Momento, however, can track all of this for you automatically.

Think of this app as your personal timeline. It accumulates all your photos, activities, check-ins, and updates and organizes it by day, month, and year. Basically, it’s one central location for everything in your digital life… a place that reminds you of that one thing you did on that one day.

But this app isn’t just for gathering all your images and social media activity into one place. You could also use it to track a pregnancy, work through a project, or journal your day-to-day.

Amigo

Getting everyone together should be easy. And getting out of your phone and into real life should be a regular occurrence. And luckily for you, this app does both.

Plan an event and Amigo will send one invitation to a group of people of your choosing. Everyone who’s invited can RSVP with one tap, and anyone tagged in the group can see when the event is, where it’s at, and who’s RSVP’d so far.

The app will remind you when you haven’t seen someone in a while, and it will even provide you with suggestions on what to do and when.
