Apps: Social Networking
If you haven't heard of Mobli, or tried out the App (available for free in the Apple App store), now is a great time! Mobli, the new, up-and-coming social photo/video App is currently hosting a wild month of daily contests, with a brand new, New iPad as the prize, EVERY DAY! Yes indeed, you read that right! In an unprecedented move, Mobli is, for the month of May, giving away a New iPad every single day! The requirements for entering the different daily contests are quite simple, relatively speaking, considering the prize.
So are you tired of Facebook yet? Granted, there probably are people that are tired of using the same social networking sites for so long. Personally, my two favorites are Twitter and Instagram. Check out a new one: Mumbo.
Okay, so it seems like there’s always some hot new way to organize your contacts popping up, and these new methods generally turn out to be so much hype. The developers of my facecard, however, actually have a pretty novel new set up.
The SoulMate app is a great app for just about anyone who is sick of having to use all different apps and other communications methods to get in touch with their friends, family or significant other. This app combines the features of things like text messaging, phone calls, email's and much more as well. It makes it very quick and easy to get in contact with anyone.

Probably the best thing about having access to every type of social media outlet on your phone is being able to connect to the world. Every single day there are more and more ways to contact people from places you never even knew existed. This application will help you do this in a fun, exciting way.
Considering how many apps are available in the Apple app store, not to mention how many are actually on my iPhone (close to 300), it's a bit daunting of a task to come up with only 10 apps to recommend here and now! There are simply so many amazing and award-winning apps out there and each is suited to an individual uniquely.
The best thing about the app store is that there are so many to chose from. Two of the biggest categories that continue to grow in the app store are social media, and games. They are most definitely interchangeable for number one at times though. What could possibly be an app that would be the best of both worlds? A fusion of both.
I wrote an article for our magazine about video aggregation apps, and of course it's now already out of date. These apps are like the wildly popular Flipboard app, but just for video. And they're fun. Showyou was the first to appear last year, and now a new version has just been released that is increasingly similar to the popular Flipboard interface. I also very much like Plizy.
