It’s an odd mix of features that lets you post content in a Pinterest style stream while also getting paid, although it’s not sure what exactly people will be paying you for. You also have the option of creating your own magazine. The app is a little confused and seems to be going off in many different directions, but it is very promising. describes itself as being a new digital era and it is available on both Google Play and the App Store.


Now this is one platform that really excites users! With inLinx, Facebook meets LinkedIn meets an old school AOL Chatroom. The most important thing to take way from inLinx is that it lets you control so much of the platform – you can decide which features you see. For instance: not interested in a chatroom? Turn it off. 

A notable feature is the ‘Treat As’ function that lets you add anyone you want as an app friend or linx, as inLinx calls it. But they understand that just because you want to connect with someone on a social media app doesn’t mean that you want them to see and know everything about you. inLinx lets you add friends without automatically making them privy to your personal details. Keep your private things private at the toggle of a switch. 

inLinx is the latest innovation in social media networking and is available on both Google Play and the App Store
