NPE Team, Facebook research team, has officially launched its latest app, E.gg, to a broader audience.
Announced several months ago, the new app is now available in the United States on iOS, and will soon be available in other countries on Android.
The app allows users to create and share canvases, which are basically mixed media “artsy” collages created using a combination of text, images, and/or GIFs.
Anything you make in E.gg can be given its own unique URL, allowing others to view your content even if they don’t have the app installed themselves. If you do use E.gg, you can browse through other people’s work directly in the app. Also, you can easily reuse the content of other people on your own pages with attribution.
“E.gg is an experimental new platform for weird and wonderful expressions of who you are and what you love”Jason Toff, Facebook Product Manager
The question E.gg aims to answer is whether a more low-pressure, creative tool can help give people the power to express themselves more freely.
E.gg is available as a free download from the iOS App Store in the U.S. Users can also view a few sample creations via http://e.gg.
