Hi, my name is Doug.  I am a Facebook addict.  Something tells me, though, I am in pretty good company here, as I suspect many of you, dear readers, spend more time on Facebook than you would care to admit.  Since I spend most of my time on the iPad, I am constantly on the lookout for avenues to access my Facebook account from my iPad.  Although I have tried many of the popular Facebook apps available for iPad, they all seem to lack a significant feature or functionality.  As a result, I keep finding myself drifting back toward the standard mobile Internet interface, and trolling the App Store for a better option.  Recently, we recei

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

image

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.

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

image

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.



Fring -- free app offers GROUP video chatting

Fring (free) recently released a new version that offers the first ever group video chatting on the iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android, and other devices. You can have up to four people chatting at the same time -- as long as they all have Fring. Video chat can be done over both 3G and WiFi. You can also use Fring to call regular phones by making in-app purchases of call time, with packages starting at $9.99.
