I got to know of partiko just few days of getting my steem account, first I just someone dropped their discord server link in one of the servers I have gotten myself acquainted with to know more about the steem blockchain. As a new user on the blockchain, I quickly joined their server and met @hhusaini, who really educated me on partiko and thought me how I can sign up with the partiko dapp.

Things I Like about Partiko

- It has a great interface to get things done at a faster rate
- It gives one quick notifications about things around his posts and the very things he engages in
- The app works great even on old android versions
- The chat button in it helps only to communicated with his friends privately
- Its easy to see every user that upvote your post
- One is rewarded for use the dapp for teir various tasks each day in the form of points which can be used to get upvotes.
Things I do not Like about Partiko
Their new way of copying link freaks me out. Because of this user are not able to be upvoted in contests
- Partiko not having a desktop version for one to access it on the computer
- The percentage of the very users who upvote your post not showing in numbers.
For almost five months since, I got to know of partiko, it has always made interaction on the steem blockchain a memorable one. They do not cut off any percentage from users for posting with their dapp, than compared with esteem which takes a 10% cut off users who posts with their dapp.
Partiko also has chats buttoms that helps one to communicate privately with their friend than esteem that do not have any such feature in their up.
I will be much happy if partiko could change their their copied link back to the old style. Also a desktop version of partiko will make them steal the attention of other user.
Finally, I will rate partiko at a 4.5 star rating.
