ARE YOU READY FOR A LONG ANALYSIS OF THE SWIFT LIFE FIRST LOOK
So here is the first second we see of the app!!! Just going to go through some obvious basics here. Stick with me, it gets more interesting. Let us note the ability to have a profile picture (which is different for Taylor here than on ALL other social media), a name (Taylor Swift), and below that is probably the url? not sure (@taylor). It also displays when the post was posted (3 seconds ago). The ability to post videos! Also the ability to add captions. The bottom left heart shows the ability to like things and the comment ability is seen in the bottom right. So what is the Taylor face? I’m not sure, but my current theory is that that is how you access the Taymoji’s to react to a post
Now we have another screen with a whole bunch of new things going on! What I want to note here is that at the top it says “Taylor’s feed” and at the bottom the blue ts icon is highlighted. I think this is where we will go to see all of Taylor’s activity.
At the top there is a clipboard icon with a check. Not sure what that is, but in another screen it is shown with a red notification dot. To the right of that we have a shopping bag with a plus sign and a huge number below it with a red-like symbol to the left. To me, the red symbol looks like a guitar pick and maybe that is how a point system is held and the number displays how many points you have. But why would you need points??? Well, if you look to the very top right, you will see the user’s profile picture displayed with a level under it. The user displayed has a level 18 with a star next to it and the words “super fan” adorning their profile pic. Which leads us back to the checklist! Perhaps it is for point-earning opportunities.
If we look to the middle of this picture we will see the ability to see how many likes a post has! Also, something similar to the Facebook react feature, but with Taymojis. This screenshot reveals three Taymojis: two flags, profile Taylor, and mountain Taylor. It also shows in the comments section the ability to like comments (GENIUS).
If we make our way to the bottom left we see a home button which I am assuming is the user’s dash. Then the ts for Taylor’s activity. The pencil clearly for making posts, the airplane for sending posts (?), and the envelope with the bell for messages (I’m guessing)
This is of a screenshot in the background. This shows the Taymoji screen and the songs they correspond to. (I don’t really understand a lot of the ready for it Taymojis).
I know this is very small but there were these animations on screens in the background of the snakes moving and the bubbles bouncing. I have no idea what this could be. Maybe a mini-game or a loading screen or something?
This has a lot going on. Note the “super swiftie” on the user’s profile pic in the top right. This shows that your posts will be displayed next to your profile pic that has your level under it. There are also three dots in the upper right hand corner of the post, not sure what they do. Taymoji’s can be added to picture posts!! AND THE OFFICIAL TAYLOR LIKE ICON!!! Also, posts can be sent and reblogged revealed here :)
A new screen! The top left informs us that it is from “Scrapbook”. The bottom shows us that it is how you post things, like pictures, text, idk what the 13 is, Taymoji’s, and… gifts? (left to right). So I’m not sure about 2 out of 5 here.
TAYLOR CAN SEE, LIKE, AND COMMENT ON POSTS. I personally think Taylor will be able to see everyone automatically and will not have to “follow.” As shown here, a Taylor like will appear on your picture if she has liked it and it also shows the sent symbol with a number (probably how many times it has been sent)
here in the scrapbook we see at the bottom on the gift section two filters (maybe?) that both say above them “5 followers can collect”. This makes me think we will not automatically have access to all things like this and some will have to be obtained
Play music and chat with friends! THERE IS A GROUP CHAT FEATURE. I am so excited to talk to other fans! (Imagine, if Taylor can join? I also wonder if this means there is a direct messaging feature). I also want to mention the second message says “Do you have the butterfly Taymoji”, further evidence that some features will have to be earned. I also want to point out the music feature which shows the music you are playing’s lyrics at the top of the screen next to a present box (on the left). Perhaps this is how you unlock some things? “Songs added every week!” Perhaps this means Taylor’s songs but, that wouldn’t make much sense right? She knows we love updates on what she is listening to and I bet that changes frequently, so my theory is that those are the songs! (Or maybe they are Taylor songs? Unreleased, demos, live. But, would she really murder us like that?)
Last but not least this small thing in the background. Similar to the snake one. Has a cat at the bottom. Might be a loading screen or something? idk. Anyways I am just super excited!!!
