If you spent any time on Twitter Friday, you probably heard about a new app called Peach.
Created by Vine cofounder Dom Hofmann, the app is “a fun, simple way to keep up with friends and be yourself,” that everyone is now obsessed with because it’s Friday, and we needed this.
The app is a sort of a mix between Twitter and Slack. After you create an account and a handle and add some friends, you view a stream of updates from the people you’re connected with. From the home screen updates look a bit like tweets or status updates, though tapping into a friend’s post reveals much more.
You see, the app is centered around something its creators call “magic words” — trigger words that allow you to add a GIF, doodle, location and other content to your stream. Typing “here,” for example, adds your current location while “draw,” lets you add a quick doodle.
