Press Release - BirdEyes : a Double Take on Twitter Photography

MONTREAL, March 17th, 2011. Pumax is proud to unveil today its latest iOS application. BirdEyes, a new take on sharing pictures through Twitter.

BirdEyes, available on the App Store, takes your pictures and shares them on Twitter in a matter of seconds. BirdEyes allows owners of iPad 2, iPod Touch 4g and iPhone 4 to use their front facing camera, simultaneously taking two pictures instead of one, sharing what they are seeing and who they are.

Whether you’re sharing the mouth watering selection of a newfound bistro’s menu, taking a live photo tweet of you and the crowd at a concert or the smile of some friends at a local café, BirdEyes shares the magic twofold. Now you can have a side by side shot of the Twitterer and... well, Twittee.

            As an iPhone user, have you ever wondered what its like to BBM?  Well, whether you have or haven’t, “kik” is an application that allows you to have that experience.  Rising in popularity among iPhone users in my circle, kik has its advantages. 

            Instead of having a pin, one operates kik under a username.  Upon downloading kik, the application prompts the user to create a username that they will not forget and that is easy to share with friends, family, coworkers and the like.  Once doing so, you are ready to go.

The interface is clean and easy to understand and I can manage all my social networking sites in one app. I have been using HootSuite (free) on my iPod Touch and online for some time but couldn't take using it on my iPad in the iPhone mode......but no more. They just came out with an iPad rewrite that is glorious.
