It wasn’t too long ago when the only contact information we had to worry about was our phone number and our address. As technology has progressed and social media has taken a hold on modern civilization, our contact details have expanded to email addresses, YouTube channels, and much more.
Discord is an innovative app that is incredibly well designed and easily merges key areas of your online life: communities, colleagues, gaming and friends/family.
Concept and Functionality:
Let’s face it, connecting with people who are like-minded is what we all want. That like-mindedness can come from any number of areas and typically revolves around work, family/home, friends and online communities of interest.
One area of interest that is common to many of us and one that we are deeply involved in is gaming.
Gaming sets Discord apart of the competition and is easily the part of its functionality that is most responsible for its meteoric rise.
This app, of course, also functions as a more general network for all kinds of groups, allowing you to easily find fellow Discord users and share with them.
No matter how you prefer to connect, Discord has you covered. Share videos, coordinate meetups, or just talk about your day by open a voice channel, which is like your own private radio station.
Discord definitely gets extra credit for being so versatile.
Discord iPhone App
One of the things about Discord that we really like is the registration process. Quick, easy, and all you need is an email address.
With all the bs happening with Facebook privacy and unregulated access to users’ data (supposedly fixed but who knows?), it refreshing that you don’t need a Facebook account to sign up.
Once registered you then “Create Your Server” by selecting an existing template such Gaming or Study Group or you can not use a template and Create My Own.
According to the app, “Your server is where your group hangs out. Make one to start chatting with your friends for free”.
In fact there’s nothing about this that is confusing or difficult. You simply invite those who you want to connect with by using the link provided and start sharing text, voice and video among the group. People can then be assigned to roles and groups so your level of control as to how people are notified can be highly selective.
Another incredibly useful aspect to this social platform is the way the moderator can manage the pace of the interactions. You can adjust the interaction speed of comments from very slow (“Slowmode Cooldown”) to no limit (“Slowmode is off”). We’ve never seen that anywhere else.
Discord is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. There are some in-app purchases for more “professional” use but casual use is free.
Whether you want to share a few details with friends, or you have an account with every social networking service, Discord is something you definitely have to try.
Discord requires iOS 10.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
