Facebook recently launched its new application for smartphones,
which is specialized in capturing image sharing,
and named it ” Hobbi “.
I have proposed it in a limited number of countries,
which are the United States,
and Ukraine so far.
And that application has been criticized by many developers
for its reproduction of the popular photo-sharing app
and Pinterest in most of its details as described.
And they pointed out that that cloning was very terrible
This application works on different Apple devices and iOS 11.0
Or something newer than that,
It allows users to take photos,
edit them and view them through the account on others,
and it also allows shooting and editing videos.
It is expected that Facebook will expand the application’s deployment
to more countries and on the Android system soon.
Like Pinterest, you’ll be able to use it to save images you like and organize them into collections or albums.
And like Pinterest, it’s also geared towards those who enjoy cooking, baking, doing DIY and arts & crafts, as well as those into fitness and home decor.
So, how are the two different? Well, Pinterest told The Information that Hobbi seems to lack its “discoverability, search and recommendations.”
The social network introduced the group behind the app,
the New Product Experimentation (NPE) Team, back in 2019. It former Vine boss Jason Toff to lead the division, which is focused on creating small applications.
Back then, Facebook said it won’t hesitate to shut down NPE projects that don’t do well, so Hobbi’s fate depends on how much people like it.
The application, called Hobbi,
is now out on the Apple App Store in the US and other regions.
(It doesn’t seem to be out for Google Play yet.)
Its App Store description says the app “wants to help you document and remember the things you love to do.”
