spread lets you capture images, save them, categorize them, and then share the images with people. It’s a bit like Pinterest, in that you can group images based on interests. It’s a cool way to visualize what you love, what you want to buy, and keep track of all the coolest stuff that you have already. Spread is also a cool way to find new things to lust over, from cars to luxury goods, and anything in between.
And since it’s the holiday season, there’s another clear use for spread. It’s an awesome tool for making wishlists, or spying on the wants of your friends so you can get some good gift ideas for them.
There’s also a metric for tracking what’s trending now, using a cool visualizer tool. That’ll be sure to give you an edge over your friends when it comes to keeping your finger on the pulse of what’s hot now.
The spread interface is super easy to navigate, and the overall design is sleek and easy on the eyes. Sign up is free, and pretty darn painless. Alternatively, you can sign in using your Facebook account, which is a nice touch.
If you want to while away the hours with a fun new app, this visual feast is a great timewaster. spread’s a social networking app that’s worth checking out. It’s the ultimate app for a consumer culture: even if you can’t actually own the things in the picture, you can kind of own them, in a virtual, talismanic sense.
spread is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later.
