At this year’s CES in Las Vegas, Blue Bay Inc. is announcing the launch of its new and improved micro-networking platform Let’s. The Android and iPhone app aims to help users connect with like-minded individuals to complete all manner of activities, from simply chatting to meeting up in the real world.
Video creation and sharing platform Lightt has been updated to version 3.0, bringing a host of new features to the platform, which allows users to create lengthy video timelines, rather than focusing on simple six or 15 second clips, as is the case with Vine and Instagram, respectively. The app was first released in September of last year, but has undergone some major updates leading to this newest version.
Private social network SquareHub has announced a major update for its iOS app, along with a release on Android devices via Google Play. The app allows families to send each other messages and share photos while coordinating schedules and location information within the same app, without requiring the use of separate phone calls or individual text messages.
Following a launch on Android, the RebelMouse social network blog creator is now available to download on iOS. RebelMouse allows users to craft a personalized blog, using content they’ve shared across multiple social networks, in an effort to create one central hub of their most important images, videos, status updates and more.
Priveyo’s social media application looks to solve a communication problem among groups of people, all of which hope to keep the information shared between them private. The Priveyo app on iOS and Android allows users to share photos, videos, status updates and more, all with control over who sees that information.
Apps23 has announced a large update for its photo sharing game Revealers, which is described as a marriage of Instagram and SongPop. The application is part photo sharing social network and part game, as users are challenged with identifying images as quickly as possible in each game.
SpeakingPhoto has announced its largest update to the SpeakingPhoto voice recording / photography app, bringing storyboards and other new options to users on iOS. The new update gives users new ways to record audio on top of photographs, before sharing them with friends, family, coworkers, and more.
Mobile developer Eevzdrop has announced the launch of its audio-centric social network Eevzdrop on iOS. The program is part of a growing movement that combines voice recordings with images that can be viewed by friends or strangers.
Messaging app and social network Path has raised $50 million in a new funding round according to TechCrunch. The company is now at a $500 valuation, but is still in search of a lead investor. This is a significant jump from the last funding round for the company which occurred last April where it was only valued at $250 million.
Previously, there were reports that the company had been looking to raise anywhere between $75 to $100 million in funding for a $1 billion valuation. It had reportedly received an offer to be acquired by Google for $100 million back in 2011.
