Over the years Facebook has made a whole load of changes to the way we interact with the network, like more ads, a constantly scrolling news ticker of doom, trending topics, subscriptions and oh did we mention this thing called Timeline?
Although we’ve learned to love the changes here at Shiny Shiny, we were very excited to try out a new iPhone app, which promises to serve up all of your important Facebook data in an entirely unique way.
The app, called Gabi, allows you to view only the content that you really want to see, so you apply filters by asking a series of questions. So you can choose over 100 combinations of questions like “which of my pictures are most liked?” or “which of my friends’ pictures are most talked about?” and you can craft your own so you only see the things that really matter to you. Once you’ve asked a question you get content served up to you and then can browse through likes and comments and even interact with the content yourself.
We love that the Gabi user experience is completely different to that of Facebook, it’s got a dark colour scheme and large panels that you swipe from side to side to see the next photo, or status or video or whatever it may be.
You really have to try the app for yourself to understand how it takes your Facebook experience and makes it easier, prettier, clears away the clutter and most importantly (after years of being glued to the same silly blue Facebook screen), it just makes it feel a little bit different.
Available from iTunes for 69p.
