Positive experiences thus far
I have no qualms about this service so far. I know Microsoft will be working to improve the platform, and competition is always good, especially in the watered-down social networking services available and used today.
Does need work
I have used the app for two days and I'm not slamming the app it but it does need a little work. On my iPhone 5 with iOS 7.0.4 as I tried to create a post the keyboard never appears, therefore no post. I was able to create a picotale successfully which makes sense as the GUI functions a little differently than for a standard collage or socl post. Fix it and I'll try again!
While yes Socl needed an app this is not that great. Every time I click a post, and try to go back, I'm at the beginning of the list and have to scroll all the way back down. Also there needs to be the share to Twitter and Facebook (google+ would be nice) options. Overall the app is slow and buggy. Hope to see updates soon!
