Pop for iPhone combines photos, videos and GIFs in messaging service
Pop, a visual messaging app for iOS, has been released, offering users the ability to create photo and video combinations to relay a message. Each image-based message is called a "Pop," and upon receipt users press down on the first image to reveal secondary content. The format lends itself to a two-part structure that works well for relaying jokes or surprises, and is conducive to ongoing chatting. Users can share a "Pop" with via the Pop social feed and comment, or build off of, any shared "Pop." Available for devices running iOS 7 or later, Pop is free to download.
