We get excited about every new release, especially as it allows us to launch features that our Circlers have put on their “wish list” in the past weeks.
Today, the new version of our iOS app will feature some improvements to the user-experience, both for the discovery of other Circlers, and the discovery of new interests and related content.
On the discovery of new users using the app, we apply now better filters in our algorithm to show users who are closer to the Circler, and who have a richer and better-matching interest-profile. Our tests have proven very positive, with results showing a much better set of people suggested for different users and their related profile. Try it now and let us know what you think of it!
On the discovery of new interests, our algorithms are getting much more effective in bringing to a Circler’s attention not only the popular interests, but also the ones “hyped” (i.e., interests that in a given, short, timeframe get lots of visibility and activity around them). This way you will not just see ‘Traveling” (9200+ likes), “Apple” (12800+ likes) and “Game of Thrones” (5250+ likes) on the list, but even interests such as the one about the actress and model Alicia Vikander (165 likes now) or the one about the astronomical phenomenon of the Eclipse (959 likes now).
The last weeks have been very rewarding to us, with the involvement of our users increasing constantly (+110% time spent per user since the beginning of Summer). We’re very honored of this, and we hope that all our little improvements will continue to make you happy and enjoying the use of CircleMe.
Get the new iOS app now, and if you like what you see…. spread the word, please! 🙂

Dear CircleMe users, fans, and curious,
Want to create a profile with all the things you truly care and are interested about? Want to get fresh content on any of 1 million interests available on the platform? Create your personal magazine with CircleMe, expressing all your Likes in one place, and getting up to 1000 new articles per day on anything you can think of.
More than this, get our “magical” Personal Calendar populate with all the events you most likely will be interested in, being related to your interest-profile and the location where you are. 70,000 events are ready for you to discover them!
With 5 years experience on our back, we worked hard to improve the User-Experience which will anyway affect hundreds of thousands of users. If you have the original CircleMe-iOS app on your phone, you will see the gigantic leap we took. We made the exploration of content much easier, and reading an article more pleasant. On top of all this, we added a feature to spot fake news, which is certainly something we really care about.
We look forward to hearing your feedback on how you find our new iOS app for CircleMe.
Enjoy your interests, always! #bewhatyoulike
A fresh new app is ready for you!
As CircleMe grows, now publishing tens of thousands of news per month on any of your interests and passions in life, we thought it was time for some “freshenin’ up” for our iPhone app. So, as of today, you get our latest and greatest iOS app from the Apple Store, here.
What do you get with this new app?
First of all, a new cool redesign. Having heard all the positive feedback about our Android version (which you can see here), we thought to get also our iPhone app a new clean and ‘sexy’ look. Here below you see a couple of screenshots to get you a flavor of it.
What more? You get lot more content, on any one of your passions. We publish close to 1000 stories per day, on any interest that you can think of. And for any story you get information, images, comments by users and more (like concert dates, etc.). In addition, now the content we bring to you is displayed in a much nicer visual feed (which we call the Updates Feed). After having released this feature as an ‘alpha’ in January, we got great feedback from you, optimized it, and now it is available to all!
There are several other features and improvements we added to this version, such as: the ability to filter content by multiple categories (e.g., “show me all the content related to Music and Movies”), an improved user-experience in the Inbox and language sections in Settings (as we approach the distribution of news in different languages).
We hope you’ll appreciate this new version, and keep the feedback coming, always!
