App Review: Bee Social

As you can see, that honeycomb interface is absolutely useless

Bee Social is the first gay social application on the Windows Phone marketplace.

While it is the first, it definitely isn’t the best. There are a ton of things that need to be improved. Bee Social allows you to post your profile, complete with images and location, to the public. It also lets you view other people’s profile.

However, the app lacks a search ability, so you cannot find people whatsoever. All you can do is click on people based on their profile picture… that’s if they even have one. There’s no way of finding people with common interests, common ethnicity, etc.

If you do happen to find someone you’re interested in, you can send them a message which uses push notifications. The app also supposedly has a live tile, but the tile didn’t seem to work for me at all. Also, there’s no way to view all past conversations, so it is impossible to find someone you talked with before, especially since you cannot search for people due to the lack of a search feature.

There are numerous other issues, including some quirky interface designs and weird glitches like selecting “Caucasian” but then it changes to “Black”.

qrcodeNevertheless, the developers seem dedicated to this application and have already released an update adding the push notifications, and it seems like they will continue to improve the app.

You can find Bee Social in the marketplace for FREE.
