Test driving the @APPICS app on iOS.
Looking forward to the video feature.
Great work.


Here's my first video.
Why you should be at the Global Leadership Summit 2019, Dubai! Gloria Hotel, Shk ... ... Zayed Rd, Feb 2, 2109. Book your ticket here:


  • Is there any possibility to have videos longer than 60 seconds?
  • For all @APPICS posts, will there be a provision to have a title & text?
  • What are the word/character limits on the text, currently? Planned for the future?
  • Will there be multiple images in one post, like Instagram & @SteepShot?
  • Will hyperlinking text be provisioned?
Very encouraging roll-out. @APPICS

Just filled out the request form. I’m on iOS, I’d like to give it a shot.

Loving the fact that the pic can now be displayed in its full format! Keep up the great changes and little twitches that make a huge difference.


Thank you, great to hear you enjoy the update! 🙌


Hey Tomas, long time no see. I have to agree, the fact we aren't forced into a square is a great addition.

Thank you for mention! 😎🙏

I still was never contacted about the softlaunch, despite registering for it and adding my email to the list as mentioned on Telegram. Sorry to bring it up here, but maybe I'll get lucky.


Hey, please send an email to so we can invite you to APPICS!

Is there going to be some way to access appics on a computer? It seems like a really interesting app, but I'm not usually fond of social media networks that are strictly mobile and don't have computer access.

I am loving the app. I was able to meet Chris at Steemfest and get an invite. This is the best photo app on the blockchain. Keep it up.

Hi @appics sir i make this dtube post about your update features hope you are enjoy it.

Thank you for the great update ! Can we expect the possibility of adding a description to our picture in an update to come? :)


You should be able to add a description, category, hashtags.


I’m sorry I wasn’t clear. You’re right, were able to add a description to our photo but once the post appears on Steemit, this description corresponds to the title of the post. I was wondering if we’d be able to add a body text to it in a future update. Thank you !
