Instagram became one of the most popular and powerful social media tools in the world thanks to its supreme ease of use. Snap a photo, apply a filter if you want, throw in a witty caption, some choice hashtags and in seconds, your message was out there for the world to see. The app has undergone many changes through the years, but what has not changed is just how crazy easy it is to still post your dinner.
The newly launched Kixify mobile app was developed with making your life as a sneakerhead easier. If you are looking for a pair of the recently launched Air Jordan 12 The Master or an obscure classic from the early 2000s, the Kixify app has the filters and specific categories in place to make finding what you want as simple as tapping to like. A seller can post a sneaker they want to put up for sale in as little as 60 seconds. Sometimes an Instagram post can take twice or three times as long depending on how much you want to mess around with your image. But once you have set up your own personal storefront, listing your kicks will be a breeze?
So what happened to the tried and true method of posting your kicks for sale on a computer? That’s not going anywhere for those who like the experience (and convenience) of a keyboard and trackpad, but things are moving to mobile at such a rapid pace. Think about a lot of the services that you use, whether it’s Uber or whatever bank you choose or even the KicksOnFire app. You don’t neccesarily have to be tied to your computer or laptop anymore because developers are realizing just how much more important and ultimately convenient the mobile experience is. Kixify is aiming to be that Uber and Airbnb for sneakers where you don’t need to use another service to buy or sell sneakers.
