Peach Is The New Social App From The Makers Of Vine

If you’ve been seeing a lot of weird screenshots and emoji on Twitter today, you may be wondering why. All those people are referring to Peach, a new app from Vine co-founder Dom Hofmann. ProductHunt has this great video of the onboarding process for Peach. It seems like they’re really learning from previous social networks to make the whole thing completely beautiful. Although it’s just for iOS for now, it’s sure to move to different operating systems if and when it catches on. This handy video, below, explains what it does.
But perhaps the coolest feature is something Peach calls “magic words.” These are words that you can type that trigger certain functionality. gif Search for a GIF
