Via.Me official Android app: Centralizing your Facebook and Twitter experience

by: Dan EvansSeptember 7, 2012

The Internet is bustling with information. Everything you could ever need is right at your fingertips, as well as the power to share our own findings. A number of websites already exist for sharing and discovering content.

Facebook is one way to discover new things, but you’d need to sift through your friends’ status updates. There’s also Tumblr but that can quickly get overwhelming as people you follow share anything and everything.

by: Dan EvansSeptember 3, 2012

Staying updated on what’s going on in the world through our friends, no matter where in the world they are, is one of the benefits of social networking sites.

Pictulize: What’s Going On?, developed by the developer with the same name, gives you the pulse of the earth in real time. It calls itself a “spaciotemporal” network, allowing users to check what’s happening at a specific place in the world.

You’ll need to create a Pictulize [...]

FriendIn: Bringing your social network contacts into one app

by: Dan EvansAugust 31, 2012

App developers have decided to fix this by putting together apps that help us stay connected with the people who matter to us. Not too long ago, we covered a caller ID app that made sure you could keep in touch with your social network contacts effortlessly. Today, we’re looking at another app that helps us discover more about our friends.

With the number of social networking sites out there, it isn’t [...]

by: Dan EvansAugust 30, 2012

Even with the popularity of social networking sites, people do still use the phone.

It is exciting to find a great app that could meet one’s expectations in integrating Twitter, Facebook, or other social networking accounts.
