Press Release   •   May 13, 2014 12:00 GMT

In a mobile app world where the overwhelming majority of social networking apps are either duplications of past efforts or uncreative attempts that fail to create excitement, it’s definitely good news when something as interestingly unique and refreshing as Sakoos comes along.

Designed by the producer of the renowned YouTube show DigitalRev TV, and available at no-cost in the App Store, Sakoos – which derives its name from the Latin word “saccus” which means “carrying bags” -- is a one-of-a-kind visual discovery social network that enables users to create their unique profile (picture + description), and then:

> Take photos of the fun objects they own or carry with them in bags, knapsacks, pockets, purses or anywhere else. Photos can also be imported directly from photo library or an Instagram account.

> Tag each object – such as a pen, a purse, lipstick, hand cream, iPhone, camera, keys, or about anything else one might carry – through the app’s excellent tagging interface.

> Share their tagged items with other Sakoos users, while they explore and discover items of interest that they can “like” and comment on.

> Discover interesting people via the app’s search function, which enables search by usernames as well by tags.

Plus, bloggers and content creators can use the app the generate “clickable” and interactive “what’s in my bag” widget which can then be easily embedded to their blogs and sites. Instead of describing what’s in the bag, content creators will appreciate the little fun widget which enables their readers to click and discover.

“The idea of Sakoos was built on a single and simple question that we ask each other all the time: what’s in your bag?” commented Richard Yu, the producer of DigitalRev TV and maker of Sakoos. “Although the idea of discovering products may initially seem materialistic, it’s actually much more profound than that. The objects we carry in many ways reflect and express who we are, what is important to us, and what we want other people to know about us. It’s like an unspoken, yet unifying language that transcends the boundaries that often keep us apart.”

Added Richard: “At the same time, Sakoos is a celebration of engineering, design, craftsmanship, creativity, manufacturing and ingenuity. Whether it’s a finely crafted leather case, or a sophisticated piece of consumer technology, users can appreciate and admire remarkable items that really demonstrate, for all of the problems we have in our world, that we human beings can really create amazing, cool and inspiring things when we want to! People are all different, and it is reflected in the items we carry with us. In the sense I felt that the app is also a celebration of diversity in our humanity”

Sakoos, the brilliant new no-cost app that uses a unique visual discovery social network to let users share and explore the fun items they carry and own, is available now in the App Store at https://itunes.apple.com/app/sakoos/id850390426.
