Peanut’s new “Pages” feature brings moms together on one discussion platform

Peanut — the app for iOS and Android that connects moms with other like-minded moms — officially launched its new feature called “Pages.” It allows moms to ask questions, share their knowledge, and come together to help each other out all on one forum.

Available in the U.S., U.K., and Canada, Peanut uses a smart algorithm to match moms and moms-to-be based on common interests, values, the age of their children, to other moms in the area.

Users can also message each other whether it’s one on one or with a group of up to 20 other moms. There is also the option to create meetups that are easily integrated into your calendar.

The new Pages feature is meant to provide additional support under a wide variety of topics. Aside from motherhood, users can start different discussions on topics like love, sex, travel, health, work, and more.

After logging in, tap on the book icon on the bottom toolbar next to the discovery and chat features. From there, you will be able to add your own questions and photos by drafting a post, selecting the topic you want it under, and then publishing it.

Similar to the way you can start polls in Peanut to decide on the best times for meetups, you can also start different polls in the Pages feature and let others vote on the answer. That way, you can expand on the poll by starting conversations in the comments to hear a variety of answers.

For those who feel shy or embarrassed by their question, there is the option to post anonymously. Users can take comfort in knowing the posters and commenters are moderated as well, regardless of if they are posting incognito.

To make the experience more personal, Pages uses a smart algorithm to prioritize topics that are the most relevant to your life and your community. Users will also be able to see trending content based on location, in order to encourage moms to meet up and discuss the topics both on the app and off. The more you use the app, the more curated your content will be to your interests.

Users will also have a notification screen as well, which shows new connections made through the app and when someone “likes” or comments on their post in Pages. Additionally, users who are most active on Pages will be rewarded for sharing their experiences with special profile tags.

Forget Twitter — this social media app has ChatGPT built-in
Koo app store listing

Koo, a social media app developed in India that pushes itself as a Twitter replacement, is deploying ChatGPT smarts to prop its appeal. The company says Koo is the “first microblogging platform in the world” to integrate ChatGPT to boost the creative flow. Koo follows in the footsteps of Snapchat in deploying ChatGPT for some cutting-edge AI bragging rights.
At the moment, the ChatGPT integration is only available to creators with a sizeable following or those with a verified badge. However, it will soon be available for everyone without any follower count restriction. So far, the company hasn’t said anything about charging users for the feature, or whether it might be moved to a premium tier in the near future, considering the fact that OpenAI’s viral tool is embracing the API route for commercial usage.

Aside from text prompts, Koo users can also use the voice dictation feature to interact with the AI. The draft section of Koo app will let users accomplish tasks like “finding the top news of the day or asking for a quote from a well-known personality or even asking for the post or a blog to be written.” The latter is worrisome, which I’ve briefly discussed below. There's also some precedent for that out there with apps like Paragraph AI doing everything from generating content in various styles to taking over even your messaging app conversations.
Koo is pushing itself as a Twitter alternative and says it has accumulated over 50 million downloads ... but hasn’t disclosed the number of users. However, it looks like the Koo is trying to boost its appeal by recruiting the hottest new tool on the internet, one that will also be immensely convenient to churn out human-like thoughtful content in bulk — which is again the easy route to grabbing more eyeballs.

I created the perfect iPhone home screen — and you can too
iPhone 14 Pro with custom home screen icons and widgets

With iOS 14, Apple began to open the floodgates for software customization on the iPhone. For the first time, you could add widgets to the home screen and even change app icons to custom ones without the need for a jailbreak. And iOS 16 gave us some more customization options in the form of the lock screen, although the interface for that is su-par, to say the least.

While I see a lot of people still use a stock grid layout on their home screen, I took some time when iOS 14 first came out to customize my iOS experience. I enjoy that it’s not just a boring grid of stock icons — having custom icons and widgets really mix things up a bit and gives me a more informative home screen.
