Please, Lord, not another social-networking app that helps you connect with 500 more people you don’t actually want to talk to. Or that adds yet more information overload to your life.
OK, since it’s Matt Cutler and Dave Greenstein, the former NetGenesis guys, let’s take a closer look. Their free mobile app is called Kibits, it’s available in the Apple app store (for iOS devices) as of this morning, and judging from the demo…well, it actually looks like it could be pretty useful. Even for those of you who are already maxed out on social networking.
The basic idea is you can create private groups on the fly—of friends, co-workers, people you have business meetings with, and so on—and share messages, comments, links, photos, videos, or documents from Dropbox or iCloud, with those people (and only those people).
