Many of us difficult to live without the Internet. Someone can not, and the day before online games, someone accustomed to the chat rooms and forums, well, someone constantly “hangs” in social networks. It is for such socially active people who do not part with your phone and the network “VKontakte”, and designed the review.
We look at some of the most well-known clients to use the social network “VKontakte” on Android-devices. Including official “VKontakte” app, a popular solution Kate Mobile and another interesting program with an unusual name Amberfog.
Next we will conduct appropriate testing of participants, and decide whether they are worthy of attention. Maybe it’s better to stay in the mobile version of the site or the official client?
As the test equipment used smartphones Xiaomi Redmi Note (Miui V8 on OC Android 4.4.2, the Dalvik runtime, processor MediaTek MT6592, 8 x 1700 MHz videosoprotsessor Mali-450 MP4, 700 MHz, 2 GB RAM) and Jinga Basco M500 3G (OC Android 5.1, runtime ART, processor MediaTek MT6580, 4 x 1300 MHz, videosoprotsessor Mali-400 MP2, 1 GB of RAM), and the tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (CM 13 based OC Android 6.0.1, the runtime ART, TI OMAP 4430 processor, 2 x 1200 MHz, PowerVR videosoprotsessor 540, 384 MHz, 1 GB of RAM).
What could be better than what was originally intended social network developers? Probably nothing, because they know best what the needs of their audience. And so the first thing we examine the “VKontakte” official social networking client.
VKontakte is one of the most popular applications in the Russian segment of Google Play. In addition, it takes the second place in the overall ranking, it downloaded over 100 million times (and it’s a given that the client several times removed from the app store itself).
When you first start, we need to log in to your account VKontakte. Unfortunately, new users will have to go to the website and register, of course through a browser, the registration form in a mobile application no.
After this we get straight to the home screen, presented news. All posts are placed, you can sort by content categories, as well as to allow the most interesting news is displayed in the top of the list. The latter function is a relatively new, so most of it is not yet know. Now you are aware and you can try it.
FaceBook is a social network, so let’s move on to have intercourse and other social opportunities. To do this, open the side and jump to any section of interest to us. For example, messages.
We can talk tete-a-tete, create group chats, share different files, smiles, gifts, and even graffiti. The number of sent / received information we have no limits, moreover, all free of charge, except for gifts and votes. The first is a virtual prize – a gift, and the second is the local currency, with the help of which you can use hospitality web applications and receive various bonuses.
Everything is quite easy and reaches the level of a full version of a social network, but I do not have enough search dialogs. Why such a function is not? She would have been to the place, and in the web version of VKontakte it is.
As for the music, video and images, then everything is standard with them. Music is played back, the video has cool built-in player, able to play Full HD video and picture everything is standard – open the image in the original quality on your smartphone can not.
To further this note in “VKontakte” application? Widgets – without them is not a member of any one application. Here are three of them – two widgets for music control, and the third to jump to communicate with one of the members.
«VKontakte” has a number of settings, but not enough. There are options for notifications, the basic interface configuration, privacy and blacklisted. The only thing that should be mentioned among the all parameters – it support a secure connection, so that no one can intercept our data. By and large, there were mixed half features the very social networks and the basic parameters of the usual applications.
But do not be upset by the number of options. The app is good, so the domestic craftsmen warning in advance and set up a special modification called VK Coffee. Add-in adds the anonymous mode, the password on startup, message encryption, multiakkauntnost caching of audio and dozens of other options. Find this supplement can be on dedicated forums.
VKontakte – good “VKontakte” the official client for the social network. The program offers a simple and at the same time easy to use and stylish interface. It contains the basic options and settings to configure, and it shows in the work well enough. Naturally, the client is completely free, and advertising in the form of posts on the social network still has not been canceled.
