Family Social Network SquareHub Optimized for New Amazon Fire Smartphone

Seattle, WA, June 19, 2014 --(PR.com)-- SquareHub, the private social network for families, is among the exclusive list of optimized launch day apps for Amazon’s eagerly anticipated Amazon Fire phone announced to the world on June 18, 2014.

SquareHub is the only family social network that combines families’ abilities to exchange messages, share photos, buy things they need, coordinate schedules, manage family tasks and share location information seamlessly between the new Amazon Fire phone, Amazon Kindle tablets, Apple iOS and Android devices. In an era when technology often separates family members, SquareHub brings them together via the smartphone or tablet of their choice.

SquareHub on New Amazon Fire Phone

“The new Amazon Fire phone is poised to 'wow' users with its rich display and time-saving features,” said Dave Cotter, CEO of SquareHub. “From the 3D effects to the motion gestures to the large display, Amazon has done with their smartphone what they did with e-readers with Kindle and ordering via 1-Click. They mastered making things fast, easy and convenient to the delight of customers.”

With the new Amazon Fire phone’s Dynamic Perspective feature, users can access the menu, see recent activity and read their family newsfeed just by moving the phone. State of the art motion gestures and head tracking capabilities give users quick, efficient access to messages and help them respond much faster—without having to touch, swipe and tap their way through information. The phone’s 3D display delivers SquareHub in a compelling and immersive experience unparalleled by any other phone on the market.

SquareHub Connecting The Family and Home

SquareHub is improving how families communicate, coordinate and share. Whether young families with children starting to explore technology, families with older kids constantly connected via their phones, blended families coordinating plans or families sharing across multiple locations, SquareHub keeps everyone connected through the chaos.

• Simple for parents. SquareHub eliminates virtual communication clutter by providing a single application for one-to-one and group messaging and communication, shared calendaring and photo sharing. It’s simple and easy for everyone in the family to use.

• Safe for kids. SquareHub offers a safe haven in today’s risky technical landscape with their private social networking for kids and teens. Families can send individual or group messages and share photos in a private network of family members. A convenient check-in feature with location details gives parents peace of mind—and kids more freedom -- online and off.

• Smart for the home. SquareHub can turn the family home into a smart home by integrating with home automation systems. Now families can be notified of the temperature in your home, whether doors or windows have been left open, and receive alerts when people and pets come and go—all from within SquareHub so that family members can discuss the notifications.

• Fun for everyone. With features like the Family Bucket List, families can store lists of activities to do together and share links to movies, restaurants and shop on Amazon, eBay, IMDb and Yelp without ever leaving SquareHub.SquareHub also includes drawing tools and stickers to enhance photos plus filters and star charts to give and receive rewards.
