What can you use the app for?

UsualWords is an online community where people can share the life with others from all over the world. People can share their life on UsualWords through dreams, goals, memories, randoms, events, ideas, quotes or thoughts. Users of the app can filter the experiences posted on the UsualWords "wall" by slimming down the types of experiences, the types of users or how they were shared as. Additionally, experiences can be filtered by keywords or by life experience dates. Users can then indicate whether an experience by someone else is a favorite of theirs, if they have an opinion about the experience or if it is abusive. Users of UsualWords can also maintain their own profile, their friends and they have a place where they can manage their activity through a notifications tab.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The app has a design that is pretty typical among social networks. Its color motif is a simple black and white background. Profiles are not so much defined by photos or the typical life history, but rather as a tally of the number of events, goals, ideas, memories or other "experiences" that the UsualWords user has documented through the app.

How does the registration process work?

New users to UsualWords can sign up using either their Facebook account or by providing the following information: email address, username, password and by accepting the site's Terms of User and Privacy Policy. Email addresses are validated.

What does it cost to use the application?

UsualWords is a free application to use, and they are supported by advertising revenue.
