There’s no doubting the pervasive influence of social media on our lives – pretty much everybody with a smartphone has Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram or some combination of the three. This has created a flood of social media apps being created with developers attempting to come up with the next best thing – unfortunately most of them fail miserably. The creators of Rif. may just be on to something though, as this app is a whole lot of fun. This is the kind of app you’ll want to share with all your friends – after all, to be considered social media it needs to be something you can share with your friends.
The nice thing about Rif. app is that there’s no complicated sign-up process – you can add a profile picture if you like but it’s not required. On the negative side there’s no way to add friends or follow someone like you can on Twitter. All you can do is observe the posts others have made and create your own posts, although you can certainly point your friends in the direction of your favorite posts easily enough. The Rif. app will require 4.9 MB of available space on your iOS device.

This app is full of material you can use, but it’s up to you to come up with the perfect caption.
Part of the fun of this one is checking out what other people have been able to come up with – if you come across the perfect post you can favorite it or share it on your other social media apps. When you want to add your own post you just tap on the pencil and paper icon in the top right corner and choose a gif from the dozens of available categories, or you can upload your own.
