FEATURED IN THE GUARDIANS APPS RUSH COLUMN, INFLUENCE IS ON SALE FOR A VERY LIMITED TIME TO CELEBRATE THE LAUNCH OF THE WORLDS FIRST SOCIAL ADVICE NETWORK. JOIN THE REST OF THE COUNTRY IN DOWNLOADING THE HOTTEST NEW APP IN THE APP STORE.
Ever wished you wern't alone in a dressing room and had your friends there to tell you which outfit to buy? Have you ever been stuck thinking about what film to go see? Which restaurant to go to? Which pub to watch the match in? If you have ever had a situation where you could use the advice of family and friends, then Influence is for you!
With Influence you don't observe friends like with Facebook and Twitter, you directly interact. Think of it as a social advice network rather than a social network. Influence is an amalgamation of several services you already use. Our idea is simple...to do them better.
Get instant updates from followers, friends, favourite celebrities and industry experts on anything and everything you need help with.
Influence circles help you organise everyone according to your real life social connections, say family, friends, uni mates and colleagues. Then you can share questions with the relevant people, and also follow questions posted by people you find interesting. You can customise your circles around your own social flow and have an entourage of advisors in your pocket 24/7.
The Influence Society reveals breaking news and the topics everyone is talking about. A question with each story gives you the opportunity to voice your opinion and together help change society.
Coming in version 2.
Industry Experts: Ask industry experts direct questions in fashion, entertainment, travel, sports, politics, business and many more. When an expert circle is selected, you do not need to provide answers, your expert will give you the best straight forward answers, to your questions.
The person who has the largest following when we hit 1 million downloads will win £5000 for being the most influential user.
So start badgering everyone you know to download Influence now and a tablet pc and 5k could be on it's way to you.
