Review VKontakte

Evgenii Kostrov
10Best
Lots of settings, various features, elaborated interface, stylish design, completely free, no ads
No significant shortcomings
VKontakte is the official client from the makers of the social network of the same name which will be useful to all its users. The program has a very nice interface and easy navigation by sections which make its using not only easy but also a fascinating process. As soon as you start the application (if you have already activated your account), in front of you there occur a page with all the latest news about your friends and groups that you are subscribed to. Whether someone writes something on his or her wall, or changes the photo, you will certainly know about it first.

Sections navigation

On the same page you can Like any of its members for certain news or multimedia content, post your own note, picture (shot directly for it or taken from the gallery), or find what you are interested in using the search box. Making a swipe to the left, you move to the page of your messages where all those friends with whom you are communicating will be visible (if correspondence is saved). Another swipe to the left, and you find yourself in the menu. Above is a picture of your avatar and your name clicking on which you can go to your profile, and below are links that re-direct you to the sections "Friends", "Photos", "Feedback", "Groups", "Audio", "Video" and "Favorites".

Settings

At the very bottom of this page there is a button leading to the application settings. There you can change your main photo (avatar), the background of the application (white/black), and accent color (blue or from the phone settings). In the same menu you can customize notifications of new events (push, sound, vibration, etc.) or disable them (for an hour, eight hours, or completely). In addition, you can activate the output of new push-notifications onto a locked screen, enable determination of the location, or sign out.

Profile

Perhaps a personal profile is the cutest page in this application. Under your photo you will see neat tiles with information about the number of friends, subscribers and groups that you are a member of, the number of personal photos and videos. Of course, a click on each of the tiles will take you to the relevant section of the social network. Below your wall will be located the information on which can be divided into all the entries and those that were made by you.

Resume

The next swipe to the left will open the page with complete information about you including marital status, date of birth, city, education, interests and the ID of your page. Here again you can change your status which will be visible to all members of the social network. This program doesn't work with applications yet, although videos and music are played perfectly. To sum up, we can safely say that the program will appeal to all those who have a page at this popular social network, without exception. Let's hope that soon it will provide support for games and applications.
