As promised, we’re extremely happy to announce the release of “The Blog App”. This app is set to work with Easyblog to give your readers a way to easily read the blogs on a smartphone. Now even more ways you can get your content to your readers!

The app is currently available on Android’s Play Store and will soon be available on iTunes as well. A lot more features are planned, but since we wanted to make a release very soon, this version is a preview to what is soon to come. The app right now allows your visitors to read blogs from your site. However I promise the next version will be feature packed and will definitely have the ability to write blogs. Social sharing is another feature we are planning for the next release.

Here’s how the app looks like with some of its cool features

1. Start up

You just have to enter your site url and all the blogs on your site will be shown. Username and password are optional. These will be used when blog posting is made available.

2. Latest Blogs

Once you put your website url all blogs on your website will appear. Starting from the latest ones from where you can scroll down.

People Suggest 1.4.3 is here with EasySocial support and much more ! Since People suggest is new to the EasySocial community, we will give you a quick introduction of what its all about. A Social Network be it a major player like facebook or a specific niche network, thrives on the relations the people involved in it establish with each other. In fact it wouldn't be a ‘Network’ at all if there were no ‘connections’ or ‘relations’ between its members.


Social Networks are more or less completely dependent on their members to create and share content and keep it alive. The users in the network contribute content because they want to share it with their connections. In fact since Social networks are so peer driven, the more connections a user has, the less likely he or she is to leave your network.

The more the connections, the more healthy your Social Network is likely to be.

People suggest is just the ingredient you need to make this happen. A intuitive suggestion is all it takes to get your members to start connecting to each other. They key is in making a suggestion that’s accurate.

People Suggest comes enriched with a multitude of connection suggestion algorithms based on the user’s profile information, the friends they have, their mutual friends, the people they have invited, actual recommendations & much more which are used in combination or individually as per your preference to give uncannily useful suggestions !

People Suggest also has integrations for Community Builder and JomSocial with the same awesome set of features !

Additional features like Matchmaking mode & User preferences for suggestions, its the perfect tool for Dating websites too !

Read on for the complete details of EasySocial 1.43 and the EasySocial Integration !!

jLike is all about the relationship between a user & content. We are always looking at enhancing and enriching that relationship. Till now you were able to like & dislike content, you could add your personalized notes & also put content into your own lists for better organisation.

Sometimes however, just showing that you like or dislike some content is not enough. You need more freedom to express yourselves. With jLike 1.1, we give you just that !

We bring you comments !


Comments are a great way to relate with content & share with everyone what you feel about it. Commenting evolves discussions around content & creates social virility around content enriching in so many ways. Text is good to express but smilies are better ! You can use them to express yourself even better ! 

Besides this mega feature, this version introduces many more features like a cool new dashboard, display modules & a tight EasySocial integration to mention just a few of them !  Go on & read the full blog for the complete scoop !
