This media-focused app allows media outlets to distribute content and users to discuss relevant topics. Based in the UK, the Cohort app helps people find media content that is related to what they want and converse with likeminded people interested in the same things.

The catch is only ten people are allowed in one cohort to ensure engaging discussion. In a society that is squad-obsessed, this somewhat exclusive approach to online community and opinion sharing is an interesting one. Cohort sees themselves as the "next generation of commenting system." Comment sections are notorious on the Internet for spreading vitriol, which small groups could potentially prevent -- but also intensify.

Focusing on content from top media providers, the app lets people discuss relevant topics that are chosen based on popularity.
