What is the history and popularity of the app?

Wibba was created to give users a better way to share the information they discover on technology. The site includes numerous features that help users share updates and gain a following. Today, Wibba serves the same purpose, providing the user with a platform to give their favorite new technologies or products center stage.

What are the differences to other apps?

There are many forums out there and other similar resources that allow users to post information. However, Wibba keeps it short and sweet, letting the user include details and gain information without wading through an ocean of useless articles or posts. By keeping the process simple and brief, Wibba has refined the way its users share or gather information about cool technologies. Users can participate in discussions to ask questions or share what they know while follow features allow users to follow each other and stay on top of recent additions.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Wibba website design compliments the purpose of the site. While keeping things simple and fast seems to be the main theme, the site layout follows suit by being free of clutter and quite easy to navigate. There are three main eye-catching colors: black, blue and white. A lot of open space makes it simple to find the right navigation tools or read recent user additions to Wibba.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can click the blue “Sign Up” button found at the bottom left hand side of the homepage. A second similar button can also be found in the top right hand corner, covering all possible locations. A basic form appears, asking the user for a username, password and email address. Below, a light blue “Sign in with Twitter” button is also present for users that wish to link the two accounts. After clicking the large grey “sign up” button, the user is asked for a profile picture, location and short description. This step can be skipped as well. After submitting or skipping the second form, the user can access their account and add a product link to Wibba.

What does it cost to use the application?

Although Wibba seems like a cool concept for the tech savvy user, it really doesn’t offer anything that would be worth paying for. The site relies heavily on user participation. Without the user, there would be no entries and nothing to do or see. Thankfully, Wibba realized this and allows everyone to create an account for free. There are no membership costs and no premium paid account option. Although no word has been given to say that this will change, a paid membership would require Wibba make a few significant additions to justify the cost.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Anyone who loves technology can appreciate Wibba. However, the site’s short and sweet approach to sharing information makes it ideal for tech lovers with a busy schedule. Anyone can quickly login, create a new entry or browse existing entries. Wibba helps users stay on top of cool, cutting edge technology without sacrificing too much time or effort in the process.
