A Whole Lot of Tweeting Going On?

Its simple to see some of these newer apps on the rise but some of the most important ones are whats most popular; not just new.  Social Networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and other blogging websites alone are all popular amongst not only the younger age group; however every single group of ages!  Companies are now using Twitter as well as Facebook to promote and advertise and we see it more and more everywhere we turn.  Specifically, Twitter seems to be on more of a rise since its launch.  The 140 character limit on a "tweet" seems to allow for more of a quick and to the point message to send to all of its followers.

School's Out for Summer!

Students jump with joy and parents slump with trepidation, but the iPhone can help parents endure the summer break.

Long hot days, graduations, BBQ’s, vacations, bug bites, bored kids, and amusement park crowds…all a part of our love-hate relationship with the summer season. For Moms (and Dads or any caregiver), summer means that the kids are "free" from the day-to-day structure of schooling, sports, after-school lessons, etc. While a great time to be a child, it is also a potentially stressful time for parents. It starts off with graduation, then vacations, camps, and inevitably ends with back-to-school shopping. Here are a few apps to make getting through the summer heat a breeze.

Editor's ChoiceThe iPhone is a great travel aid all by itself, but some downloads from the App Store make it even better. The Facebook app for the iPhone is a quick and easy way to keep up with friends and family when you’re traveling. It lets me send updates about where we are, what we’re doing, and even share the cool pictures that I snapped along the way. I took a few the other day at the Nebraska Wildlife Safari. That evening, I used Facebook to share them. It’s like sending a postcard to multiple people—without the stamp.

FacebookEditor's ChoiceIn recent years MySpace’s dominance has been replaced by other social networking sites. The one finding the biggest place in people’s hearts and computers is Facebook. In fact, when I bought a 1st generation iPod touch, Facebook was one of the first apps I downloaded. It remains on my first screen to this day.

The Facebook app is one of the most popular free apps, with an amazing 343,000 ratings. Version 3.0 was released late this week. So if you're into social networking, and like doing it from your iPhone, head on over to the App Store and get the latest version. It requires iPhone 3.0 and has a ton of new features, including landscape mode, the ability to post photos and videos, and much more. According to online discussion, everyone is pretty thrilled with this new version, saying it's very different from 2.5 and a huge improvement.

As I’m writing this, Apple is hosting a countdown to the 1 billionth download from the App Store. In honor of the occasion, they have posted a list of the all-time top 20 paid apps and free apps. At the top of the free apps list is Facebook, which was released early on in July of 2008 and currently has thousands of enthusiastic reviews. You can use it to chat, view photos, monitor your friends’ status updates, and upload photos to your Facebook account.
