Share your life with friends in real time with Spin

Spin is a iOS-only Skype alternative that allows you to share photos and videos with friends. Spin uses HD video and and 44kHz audio to provide the highest-quality experience that they can. The app places an emphasis on shared experiences for up to ten people, and allows you to create events for you and your friends to participate in together.

Adding people to a conversation is easy. Tap the people tab will bring down a list of your contacts. Select the person or people you want to add, then drag them over to your video window to contact them. You can leave a conversation by dragging your video window out of the group window. To create an event simply tap the Gatherings square that says "Plan Something". There you can give it a name, set the time, add a photo, and invite people.

Spin allows you to share media like photos from Flickr, Facebook, and Instagram. You can also share videos from Facebook as well. You can manipulate photos in a number of ways, including applying a number of effects to them. Group Remix lets you go through your friends' favorite photos and control playback on their videos. Spin also gives you control over what you share so your friends only see what you want them to see. You can also send media to your TV via AirPlay.

Spin is a free, universal app, now available on the App Store.

This is very nice. I like the sound of having a group audience. But for right now I think I have to continue using Skype as I communicate with people on a Kindle fire... But this is definitely something I'm going to keep my eye on.
Thank you.

Is it US only? I can't open the link from the UK. Can't find it by manual search either.

Hi there,
Yes it is US only for now. We're working on bringing Spin internationally soon.
In the meantime, if you have an Apple ID associated with an American credit card, you can download it. You can subscribe for updates at our website

Too bad it's not yet available to other countries. I'm willing to do some account tweaks on my Apple ID to access the US AppStore but I don't think my friends will be as cooperative. Looking forward to the international release.

Never heard of it, but to be honest I don't think I understand the concept. I think I'll have to see it in action. With that pricetag, might be worth a try, but the number of social networks out there already are relatively exhausting as it is.

This is a nice concept. I'm going to try to convince my friends to download it so we can try it out.

Nice app, wonder if another social network company will take over it, or make their own version, like Instagram and Vine did to each other.
