Zwiggo is a group focused application that helps user communicate and share content with others. The user begins by creating an account and building their Zwiggo profile. The user can invite others from their Gmail, AOL, Yahoo Mail and Hotmail contact lists or by email. Invitations can be sent for the spaces created by the user or other spaces that the user thinks their friends may enjoy. Spaces are essentially web pages the user can create to share anything they want with their group. Spaces can be listed publically or kept private. Zwiggo supplies the user with a collection of apps that can be added to each space. Apps include chat, to do lists, photos, day planners and more. Group members can leave comments or interact with the apps the user places on the space.
Zwiggo has made appearances all over the web, even though its service is very similar to those offered by sites like Facebook. The application is growing in popularity because of its user friendly nature as well as the many things that can be done with the user created spaces it supports. The current version includes a decent list of apps that give the user many ways to make their space functional and practical.
Zwiggo stands out because the application is geared towards the average internet user rather than businesses and organizations. Users can easily and quickly create a space for anything from a family vacation to a project or event. The application manages to keep things user friendly without decreasing the overall value offered by Zwiggo. Users can add chats, photo galleries and more to their spaces without devoting a great deal of time to the design process.
Zwiggo’s user interface is rather simple, yet remains very modern and attractive. The light background creates a beautiful contrast against the faded grey and blue tones found throughout the site. The cool color choices give Zwiggo a very relaxed, easy going appearance. Each feature and app is neatly organized so the user can quickly find and add the items they want without visiting a tutorial guide each time they try to place something new on their space.
Zwiggo is dedicated to keeping things easy on the user. Newcomers never have to venture far to create a new account. The registration form is positioned along the right hand side of the Zwiggo homepage. The form asks for a screen name, email address and password. After submitting the completed form, the user is automatically directed to their new account dashboard and can begin using Zwiggo. Pop up tips appear when the user first accesses their account, but these can be closed if the user does not need them.
Zwiggo is available to all users for free. There are no subscription fees and the user can access all features just by creating an account. This is an excellent way to encourage users to try Zwiggo’s fun, convenient features. Users can create multiple spaces. The site does not place any noticeable limitations on user accounts and users can build Zwiggo pages to suit just about any purpose.
Zwiggo is a fun application for anyone who wants to share content with a group online. Coworkers, friends, family and members of offline groups can come to Zwiggo to meet up and share content, talk about anything or keep everyone informed of group-related events and developments. The application is very easy to master and gives the user many tools to choose from to make their spaces more interesting and functional.
