Everyme vs Path

peter-petrovski:

Yet another micro-social-sharing-mobile app has been released, it’s called Everyme

When I first read about it I had to groan. A Path clone? A copy of Google+ circles? Why do I need this when it’s already hard enough to get friends to join those networks. Eventheir websites look the same.

But then I started using it, and I realised it’s a little different.

A little useful, even.

What’s very clever is that it actually solves a real problem in a logical way - sharing with your close friends, even if they don’t use that social network. All without having to manually create friend groups, or as the app interestingly calls them - circles.

Everyme scans your address book, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts and auto-magically creates circles based on your social graph. You can then tinker with them and add other circles to your heart’s desire.

The beautiful thing is that when you share to a circle, it will send the update to your friends’ email address or to their phone number as a text message. The emails look beautiful, and may encourage your friends to join the network without you having to nag. Amazing.

The visual similarities to Path are hard to ignore. In some views it looks like they took Path and tinted it a shade of aqua blue. Missing are some of the fun visual elements such as Path’s bouncy input ball and the spinning clock as you scroll through your timelines. This makes me a little sad.

However it makes up for the one infuriating problem with Path, in that in order for it to be fun and useful your friends need to be active there.

There are no Path-like photo filters in Everyme. Nor are there emoticons. You can’t share songs or post your Nike+ runs. In fact, Everyme doesn’t really feel like a social network at all, but rather a sleek group messaging app.

So even though at first tap it looks like a Path clone, after using it for a while you realise it’s something else. It’s an address book. 

If anything, it’s more of an iMessage replacement.

iMessage seeks to replace SMS, sending a text through the iMessage protocol whenever an iOS 5 device is detected.

But not everyone has an iPhone.

Path also doesn’t work unless you are in a clique of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs or your name is Robert Scoble. 

Everyme allows you to easily send a message or a photo to a group of people, regardless of what network or phone they are using. You just send an update to a circle, a real friend circle not a Google+ nerdcircle, and know that it will reach everyone via the app, an email or a text message.

It will be interesting to see if the service takes off. For once though, I don’t have to beg all my friends to join yet another social network - it has value right from the start.
