I’m not easily impressed with social apps. After all, we are constantly bombarded with updates via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Foursquare. Why yet another app? Why PicIT24?

The important point was already made in the previous paragraph. We are constantly bombarded. We don’t consume our friends’s and acquaintances’s updates, we are being constantly assaulted by these updates. Who has just eaten in McDonalds, pictures of other people’s cats and who has just read an article. Why so much noise? Focus!

PicIT24 is the app that lets you focus in your (and your relatives, friends and workmates) social vibe. How? Just one update per day. As simple as that. There’s no option to post any more. As soon as you open the app and log in (something you only have to do the first time you open it) you’ll be greeted with a timer, showing the remaining hours for the day. Once you have made your day’s update, that’s it: until tomorrow nothing more.

Imagine how less noisy our feeds would be this way: just one shining moment from each people you follow, nothing more, nothing less. You’d think twice before posting anything that is not worthwhile. No more silly pictures, only cool ones.

PicIT24 offers 10 filters to enhance your pictures, adding some shades to change its mood. The app of course also offers text updates, for your brilliant insights, ideas or quotes.

In short: PicIT24 is the best social app we have seen this year, hands down. You should definitely grab it.

Invite your friends to follow or use the app’s popular/recommended members to create feeds of daily updates.
