People who snap shots of all their important life events and manually upload their images to Facebook have a lot of time to spare. Some of them even take the time to tag each photo individually and add a caption to them. Unfortunately, not everyone has the same amount of free time. The fewer the steps it takes for me to upload to Facebook, the better. It seems that Chris Banes, developer of photup for Facebook, had the same idea in mind.
Say goodbye to wasting too much time uploading an image to Facebook. photup for Facebook allows you to easily snap a shot, enhance the photo, and upload it — all from one app. When you first launch the app, you’re instantly [...]
Mobile devices have made communication ubiquitous and persistent. With our mobile devices essentially tethered to our analog lives, we text, call, chat and email almost everywhere. Case in point: have you ever answered a call while in the shower? Perhaps if you’re anticipating an important call or message, you won’t find this so strange.
But it’s this very attitude that can sometimes cause trouble. What if you’re calling your boss at an inopportune moment? Or perhaps you’re sending a message to someone in a different time zone, and she can’t answer because it’s 3 AM. A simple Android app can help add some context to your [...]
We’ve been hearing rumors about Facebook’s supposed grand mobile plans for quite some time, but until now, they had but a whiff of credibility. The last one in particular, coming from the New York Times, sounded extremely far-fetched, stating that Facebook was considering building a smartphone from scratch, both in terms of hardware and software.
A new report seems to set the record straight about Facebook’s bold, but sane plans of getting in the smartphone business. According to Bloomberg, Mark Zuckerberg’s company is currently working on a phone with deep integration of Facebook features, but they have sought help from their old partners at HTC.

The Nexus 7 tablet started shipping only last Friday – and it’s already selling out with certain third-party retailers – and we already have the first Android updated with support for the 7-inch device.
Unsurprisingly, it’s Instagram that was updated for the Nexus 7, a popular photo-sharing app that was recently launched on Google Play and that was recently purchased by Facebook for $1 billion. Although, truth be told, the Nexus 7 is not exactly a device to take pictures with, especially since it only comes with a front-facing camera for video chatting – and that’s a 1.2-megapixel camera, not necessarily recommended for Instagram [...]
Facebook integration has become a must for almost everything connected to the web, intended to gain leverage from the millions of people viewing the site at every tick of the clock. Thousands of users post their latest status, videos, and most importantly, photos.
Ironically, Facebook itself or any of the Facebook applications found on the Google Play Store don’t support a feature to easily upload a lot of photos. This is precisely the niche that Photo Saver tries to serve, giving you a decent and simple photo upload and backup application on your Android device.
Photo Saver is a fresh Android app which allows you to easily upload and back up your photos [...]
In the past, Facebook engineers have been often and heavily criticized over the quality of the social giant’s mobile apps. However, today I’m here to report that there might still be some hope left. The most recent update for the official Facebook Messenger app for Android brings a whole bunch of new features, as well as some improvements to the overall performance of the app.
First up, there are couple of new features designed to save you bits of precious time: in-app notifications now give you the ability to switch between conversations much more quickly than in the past, while the “swipe to delete” function allows you to delete individual messages from [...]
Once upon a time, there was a small Canadian-based telecommunication company that mesmerized the entire world, growing and innovating at an unprecedented pace. The Prince Charming-like RIM sold millions and millions of Blackberries each year, netting incomes that the competition couldn’t even dream of.
However, the fairytale ended as abruptly as it started for Research in Motion, a company that is now closer to bankruptcy than it is to world domination. The “Really Irrelevant Manufacturer”, as our friend Sam Cater called it in a very interesting opinion piece from back April, is now holding less than 15% of the worldwide smartphone market, being crushed [...]
Facebook and the advent of the smartphone have completely changed the way we communicate with friends.
Party invites, and in extreme cases, even regular hangouts with friends are organized through Facebook events. “Remembering” birthdays has never been easier thanks to Facebook’s reminders. We now know exactly what everyone is up to, whether they are close friends or that persistent relative who just wouldn’t get the hint when you ignored their “friend request” the first ten times. How many of us contact friends, even those living in the same city, using Whatsapp, Viber, Gtalk, etc.?
It looks like Facebook, which has been [...]
