What is the history and popularity of the app?

Mild was founded in January of 2012. The application was designed specifically to convert Twitter and Facebook posts to a blog format. So far Mild hasn’t drawn significant attention on the web. The application can make life a lot easier for anyone responsible for updating a blog however there are a few downsides to the service. Not everyone wants to repeat the same content on their blog as they post on their social networking profiles. Twitter limits the length of posts, which might make some blog posts seem insubstantial.

What are the differences to other apps?

Mild is unique because of the way it helps users manage their blogs. The application lets users take their Facebook and Twitter content and transform it into a fully functioning blog. Users can link to as many social networking profiles as they like, there are no limitations. The application may serve as an easy way to increase the frequency and reliability of blog posts although readers who are also followers on Facebook and Twitter may be put off by duplicate content.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

To put it bluntly, Mild has a very mild design. The site favors blues set against white and black. The color scheme works well and the interface has a modern feel to it, however the site sees like it could use a little more eye candy to make the experience more memorable. The design is completely clutter-free, which is a good thing. New users can easily learn the ropes with no obstacles to slow them down.

How does the registration process work?

New users can try Mild by clicking the blue “Sign Up Now” button found along the right side of the homepage. The form on the next page asks for a username, email address and password. A green message appears at the top of the page to let the user know that they have successfully created an account. The user is automatically directed to the login area and can sign in to begin blogging with Mild.

What does it cost to use the application?

Mild offers users two subscription options. The first is a Basic free plan. All new users are automatically given access to a Basic plan when signing up. The free plan includes unlimited social profile conversions and embedded blogs. Users can upgrade to a Premium account for $20 per year. Premium access includes full blog customization, Google Analytics integration and priority level support. Mild accepts payments through Paypal.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Mild is a convenient tool for anyone who frequently uses social networking profiles and maintains a blog. The user can transform their Twitter and Facebook profiles into blogs that can be customized with a Premium access purchase. The service is user friendly however it doesn’t come with many appealing extras. Users can save a lot of time, but may also put off some readers who already accessed the same content on their social networking profile.
