Yet another social media platform, Tracks had me floored when I first launched it. I was totally amazed and impressed by the sleekness of the app; how everything seemed to seamlessly integrate themselves, even at just the login screen.

The term Tracks comes from the fact that every account create is labeled a Track.

Think of Tracks working like Instagram, another popular social networking application except that it is much more popular. However, I liked the way Tracks organizes itself as the layout is much more user-friendly. Going by the now-common panels design system, Tracks makes browsing through content a breeze and extremely enjoyable.

The emphasis on white as a background color also adds to the readability of the app. Instead of contrasting or bright colors, the white-based theme contributes to a lush and soothing feeling while scrolling through Tracks. It makes for easy reading, whereby long periods of staring at the screen extended does not damage the eyes thanks to the gentle and soft layout design.

The main feature of Tracks would be the camera button located at the middle portion of the bar situated at the bottom of the screen. This works the same way as the Instagram camera does – Take a picture and the app posts it onto your social networking feed. However, the Tracks system is definitely much easier to use. Obvious differences include the ability to preview how filters look like as you are taking the photo instead of applying them individually after the shot has been taken. This gives greater flexibility on how to snap a particular image with a certain filter in mind.

For a free app, Tracks is worth the download. While not on a scale compared to Facebook or Twitter, Tracks does have a decent user base and that is set to steadily increase. This could be the next in thing.
