31 Communication Apps

From Visual Storytelling Apps to Anonymous Video-Sharing Apps

— July 22, 2014 — Tech
Thanks to the Internet, there are a ton of ways to get in touch with someone and these communication apps provide even more unique ways to make interactions more personal. Although it's easy to take to Instagram, Facebook or Vine to share a personal story through photos or videos, there are tons of apps designed to enhance or remix content with text, sounds or music above and beyond what's offered on some of the most popular social media sites.

Since posts to social media are on an extremely public platform, there are also ways to tell your personal story with a bit of anonymity, such as with help from Vent, PeekInToo, Whisper or the Awkward app.
