Always be connected with new app 'Stay In Touch'

Ever get busy with life and realize you’ve lost touch with important friends? 

Or tell a friend “Let’s catch up soon!” and then forget to follow up? 

Or remember Grandma’s birthday…two days too late?

 

We all have people in our lives we’d like to see or talk to more often. Stay In Touch is a simple app by Xanadu Mobile that helps you prioritize the friends and family you care most about. Set reminders for yourself to see people regularly and never lose touch again.

Google+ now available in App Store -- free app lets you access Google's new social networking site

Google+ (pronounced Google Plus), which is Google's new social networking site meant to compete with Facebook, has had explosive growth, hitting 18 million users after being introduced only three weeks ago. AND, it's not even yet publicly available. It's rolling out gradually via the invitation model, which is how Gmail began its life. I've used it a bit and it's impressive — more intuitive and friendly than Facebook.

Snipper -- free app lets you broadcast videos directly from your iPhone

Snipper (free) isn't simply yet another web-based video sharing service. Rather, it's phone to phone. You use Snipper to shoot videos with your iPhone (limited to 60 seconds or less), and Snipper pushes those videos to the phones of other Snipper users that are subscribed to your channel/s. From your phone to theirs — no need for a link to a website and then streaming of the video off that site. The film is downloaded, in the background, to their devices so that once they receive notification the film is already on their device.
