The pandemic has changed our lives so much over the last year or so. In a lot of cases, it's tied us to our homes and even isolated many of us, to a certain extent. As a consequence, we've turned more and more to social media to communicate with each other. WhatsApp, Tik Tok and Instagram have all had a good workout but people are now turning to other more interesting ways to get their message across and, for younger users at least, that passageway isn't Facebook Messenger. The kids, it seems, want something a bit more interesting than simple messaging. 

A number of new messaging apps have sprung up and each seems to have its own unique characteristics. The new kid on the block to start off 2021 is an iOS app called Zapshot. This bright and colorful new messaging app seems to be geared mostly at the younger market but could well appeal to a much wider audience if it catches on. So, what makes Zapshot so different from the others, you say? Well, this one bridges the gap between talking and texting on the phone by offering both at the same time. It also offers some pretty neat tricks when it comes to video creation. 

Zapshot is a brand new social media platform that specializes in both voice messaging and video creation. You can chat with your friends by speaking and recording messages as you would normally do but Zapshot automatically transcribes your words into text and sends both voice and text to your friends. There's also a video element to the app where you can film and edit short videos which can be shared with your Zapshot friends all over the world. 

It's pretty easy to create your short new videos with Zapshot. You can be creative and jazz them up using a variety of filters and stickers. When finished, you can launch them into the Zapshot worldwide community. Your videos can even help you discover likeminded new friends with whom you can collaborate on future projects. When you 'connect' with new friends you can both follow and voice chat with them no matter where they are in the world. 

The idea behind Zapshot is to make messaging easier and to connect with friends old and new and make it even more fun when you do. All you have to do is to scan a friend’s face to connect, then just 'hold' your friend's mic and talk. The app does the rest. The recipient can either read your comments or listen to the audio of your voice, depending on how they feel and on where they are. Zapshot is a great way to catch up with friends and family from all over the world. It also allows your creative juices to flow with short, fun videos that you can share with the whole community. Zapshot is available in beta format only right now. Try it out using the link provided.
