EA treading into social networking territory?
Thursday, 04 April 2013 11:57
Gaming company Electronic Arts has come out with something totally new -- a free music and photo social networking app called Vue.
No, it's not a social network focused game. It's simply a social network.
The question is -- why did a gaming company create a social networking app? It's not yet entirely clear. According to Venture Beat, it is a "low-budget exploratory project" started by EA Partners group.
The premise of Vue is to find songs on music services like Spotify and Rdio, pair them with personal photos, and then share the package with friends and relatives (see video below). Vue's Web page defines it as a place "where life meets music." It's available on the iPhone and iPad in Canada and Australia.
