Keeping Up with the Stars

We all like to know what’s going in in the lives of our favorite stars and there are lots of ways to gather this information – there are countless celebrity tracking websites, YouTube channels, and countless apps all focused on giving you the celebrity news fix you’re looking for. StarSpot may not be your only source of celebrity information, but it is one of the better ones you’ll find in the App Store. This is a powerful cross between a celebrity news application and a social media tool – not only can you find out what’s going on in the lives of your favorite stars, you can add your own two cents to the ongoing conversation as well.

StarSpot has a nice intuitive user interface that features high quality photos of stars in a constantly updating feed. Most celebrity websites and apps are full of ads, but this one is completely free of them which is a breath of fresh air. There are no in-app purchases either, just a simple app that works very well. There aren’t any instructions that explain how the app works, but they aren’t really necessary anyway as the app really is pretty self-explanatory. This app will require 3 MB of available space on your iOS device.

The Essentials

Getting the hang of StarSpot isn’t difficult – when you open the app you’ll be bombarded with all the latest pictures of your favorite stars. At the bottom of each picture are social media tools, you can tap on hot if you like the picture and you can leave a comment as well if you like. The comments are actually integrated with your Facebook account so you’ll have to log on to Facebook before you can use this feature. You can also share the picture over Facebook, view the location where the picture was taking with the built in map function, and find out a little background about the photo as well.

The app also lets you upload your own celebrity photos as well if you happen to run into a famous star on your travels – you can access this feature from the settings menu in the top left corner. You’ll also find a search feature in the settings menu if you want to search for a specific star, as well as a tool for adding your favorite stars for easy access to all their latest photos. Once you’ve added some of your own favorite stars you’ll be able to quickly access them using the My Feed feature.
