ASKfm, the platform targeting both iOS and Android devices has announced the release of its latest update. The app allows users to send each other questions from within the app. The latest version now offers a redesigned interface as well as other additions. ASKfm now offers a more youthful feel for its target user base. The platform also offers a new mascot: Owlcat.
Additionally, the app now has GIF integration, which enables users to browse through GIFS to send with their question responses. Users are also able to unlike any post, or double tap to like a post, customise the banner behind their profile and share profiles and post through text.
Furthermore, due to an integration with a partner platform for Vine Creators called Collab, the feature ‘Question of the Day’ will be programmed by a selection of Vine stars including Marcus Perez, DSharp and Rickey Thompson. On top of this, a ‘Grab n Ask’ feature will enable users to share questions that they find with other users.
Andrea Cutright, the COO of ASKfm commented in a recent statement “ Young people on ASKfm show incredible engagement—the bulk of the 18 billion questions asked over the past year were answered within a minute. We saw an opportunity to dramatically evolve the ASKfm experience to foster the instantaneous communication, creativity and connection that reflects how our users view the platform.
