When I was contacted by the developer about reviewing this Tubey I was innately excited. As I have said in previous reviews Social Networking app’s are where I have found some of my favorites app’s. This app is no exception it is one the best Social Networking app’s to date in the iTunes App Store in my opinion allowing you to take pictures from your library or with the camera arrange them in the order you want and add basic zoom & pan effects to the images creating a slide show type video that will be automatically uploaded to your YouTube and BlogSpot accounts.
To get started tap Tubey icon on your iPhone after it loads you come to a screen where you will need to choose the type of video you want to create. Options are as follows you can create a Personal Video, Event, Sell, Real Estate or Other Once you have chosen the type you’ll start the build video segment in which we will first add the pictures we want in this video after you select all your images you will notice to the right of the picture it will say random effect, by tapping on those words you’ll open the effects options. Here you can choose what effect you want for that particular image their are 5 options total you have Random Effect, Pan Up, Pan Down, Zoom In & Zoom Out.
Once you have the images and effects setup how you want them you will need to hit the back button in the upper left corner and the select Add Audio option here you can record a narration for your video and add background music. Their are 56 different albums of background music already in this app for you to use which I found to be a great feature.
Now that we have our narration and background music finished hit the back button upper left and select Add Info tap here you will add the Video Info, The Title, description, tags, category etc… this will help people find your video on YouTube & BlogSpot. After you complete the information about your video hit the back button to main screen. Here we will complete our final step and approve the video upload after you make sure that you have the images you want, Audio and Info are all correct simply hit the upload button. Your new video will be uploaded to Tubey for transfer to YouTube & BlogSpot. It is really that simple Awesome App.
I can’t say enough about Tubey this app ROCKS even at $4.99 it is a STEAL. I think friends & family would much rather watch a video of where you are and what your doing than to read text about your adventures. My opinion of Tubey is an outstanding job by the guys at CirclePix.com. Hands down one of the best App’s to date. I give it a 10 out 10.
Social Networking App’s are where I find some of my favorite iPhone app’s at. When this app was released I was excited to get it and start playing around. After syncing to my iphone I started app to come to a screen to add account once you type in your Twitter login info you’ll be sent to the Tweets screen like being on your Twitter Home where you can read tweets from people you follow. You can scroll down through recent tweets and by tapping a tweet you’ll open new screen of the tweet with details of who and when it was posted as well as any links in the tweet will be click able.
Across the top you see accounts on the left side this will allow you to go back an add additional Twitter account you may have. On the right side by tapping the paper & pen icon you can create a New Tweet you can type 140 characters just as if you where on twitter.com. Now a few options that make this app even cool than being on Twitter itself, You can add a photo to your tweet by taking a picture with the camera or choose existing photo once you have done this and typed your message hit send & your photo will automatically be uploaded to twitpic and a shortened url you be added to your tweet. You can also add a map link to your tweets which will add a shortened link to your tweet where you followers can see on google maps where you where when you send tweet.
Those are two very cool options that drawled me to loopt social networking app. You will notice at the bottom from left to right the first icon is Tweets which you should currently be on next is Replies here you can see recent replies and by tapping on a reply that you want to read this will open new screen with the message, details of who and when the sent reply and at the bottom you have several options first from left to right tap the arrow in the box this will allow you to Repost Tweet, Post Link To Tweet or Mail Link To Tweet. Next is the link icon this icon is only highlighted and click able if there is a link in the reply that you are currently reading by tapping it you can Repost Link or Add to Instapaper. Your next icon is the star by tapping it you you save tweet to your favorites and finally the last icon is the backward arrow by tapping this icon you will be able to tweet a reply back to the person who originally sent you the reply.
Now back to main screen next option icon across the bottom will be Messages tap this to read Direct Message Received and Sent as well as compose a new direct message to send. The Star icon will be next in line by tapping the star you see all the tweets you have saved as favorites. The last icon is More once you click this there will be 5 options to choose from first being My Profile this will allow you to see a mobile scaled down version of your Twitter Profile with options to Reply, Send Direct Messages, Read recent Tweets, Search @Your Twitter Name to see you is RT Or Talking about your tweets you can view your Followers and who your Following. Go To User allows you to type in username and search to find that user on Twitter, Near by search and locates other Twitter Users in your local area. Trends lets you see the Public Timeline as well as the top 10 current trends and last but not least the search option here you can search keyword, phrases, usernames or whatever your interested in.
At $2.99 I would say to Twitteriffic move over buddy there is a new player in Tweet Town, This app is near perfect I can’t think of one thing this app lacks. It is simple and straight forward the interface is friendly and easy to use with some cool options not found on twitter itself. Hands down to the developers and I wonder if people from Twitter.com help in the development of this app because in my option it is by far the best iPhone Twitter App to date. And I noticed this app is being promoted on Twitter what is in it for them I wonder.
Entertainment Apps are some of my favorite ones to test and use in my personal life. When I received the review request for Distant Shore I went to the App Store to see more about this app. After reading the description I was immediately intrigued but was alittle confused to as if this is a entertainment App or social networking game app but none the less I was ready to download it and sync it to my 3G.
After syncing I started the app to notice the sounds and scenes of the beach, In the upper left corner tap the little “i” to see options, News, Help and About features. In the lower left corner is a bag icon tap this is to see messages you have picked up along the beach and bottles you have earned to create new messages to launch in to the Ocean. In order to find message that others have thrown in the ocean and have washed up on your beach you will need to walk around on the beach by tapping your finger in the direction you want to walk looking for messages in bottles and collecting Sea Shells after you have collected 5 you get a bottle to create a new message and launch it in the sea to read messages tap on one of the letter in your bag you wish to read, to compose new messages tap on a bottle and the keyboard will popup type in what you want and tap Launch.
Although I really enjoy this so called entertainment app I consider a more of a social networking game I wasn’t impressed graphics they where just ok for my. The whole concept behind this app is cool it has given me some ideas for a business app I have been thinking of developing. The idea of typing a message and throwing it in the ocean to wash up on another person using this app’s beach whom you may or may not know is brilliant, Thumbs Up on this app with the add game like features of walking around picking up messages and collecting shells make it more interesting.
At $0.99 this is well worth buying, among entertainment app this is one to get. I predict this app will be in the top 50 if not 100 paid apps for along time to come and I’m looking forward to updates & others apps this developer may releases in the future.
This app is for people that use the Skype Internet telephone system. It allows you to use SkypeOut credits, similar to calling card minutes, to make calls and send text messages to people in your iPhone’s contacts list. It can also connect you to your Skype account, be it paid or standard, so you can use your iPhone to make calls when you’re away from your computer.
Of course, to use this app, you have to be registered with Skype. However, the people that you call or text do not have to be, though it is easier if they are. You can add other Skype users to an in-app contacts list to see when they are connected to Skype and available. You can also schedule conference calls or other events and indicate when you are free to chat.
This app is great for people who have a lot of friends and family that live overseas. It can be helpful to use Skyepout credits instead of having to use cell phone minutes, which are subject to hefty roaming charges. I did not see any way to purchase Skypeout credits through the app. It seems that you have to either buy them beforehand or make a trip to the Skype website from your iPhone’s Internet browser. So the app does take some planning. You can’t just pick it up out of the blue and use it.
The interface is very easy to use and pretty much self explanatory. I would recommend it for all regular Skype users.
My roommate is utterly and completely obsessed with this app. He tells me where his friends are and what they’re up to probably about every 15 minutes. Due to the genius of Loopt, all he has to do to connect with one of his friends is go to the list icon at the bottom of the screen. Then all of his friends who also have the app will come up. He touches a person’s name to get his or her most recent location and then chooses “ping” to send an alert of where he is via text message. His friend “pongs” him back and viola, everyone knows where everyone is.
If you want more specific information so you can actually find people, say to meet up for coffee, you can also find their exact locations on a map in Microsoft Virtual World and get directions to where they are. Additionally, you can view the most recent photo they’ve uploaded and any information they’ve posted on what they’re currently doing.
My roommate uses this app more for fun than for planning, but there’s no reason why you couldn’t get everyone in the office Loopt together to notify them of a meeting or use it to find your friend who got hopelessly lost on the way to your house. The only problem I’ve come across is that you can only find people who have Loopt on their phones and to sign up for it you have to register. This will turn off at least a few people and kill any chance of keeping tabs on your entire social circle.
Most anything you can do on MySpace you can do on this app in convenient iPhone form. Now you never have to worry about updating your account again. You can do it on the go from wherever you are.
You can accept or deny friend requests, search for new friends, view accounts, photos and messages, upload photos taken from your phone, send and receive emails, update your profile, look at your friends’ status and moods, view new bulletins and read and leave comments.
Unlike the PC version of MySpace, the also has some adaptations to make the site easier on the eyes. You can view photos in full screen, so you’re not stuck looking at tiny thumbnails and navigate up and down the pages of the site by scrolling. Another thing that’s really different is that you can’t see all of the song and dance that some people add to their pages, such as wallpaper and background music. You are limited to their comments, photos and friends unless you sort through a complicated hierarchy of menus on the right side of the screen. But true MySpace devotees will have it figured out in minutes I’m sure.
If you live on MySpace, you’re going to love MySpace Mobile. In fact, you’ll hardly notice it’s any different, besides the fact that it fits in your pocket. Those who aren’t such ardent users, such as myself, may notice a slight learning curve. Either way, this is definitely an app that is worth trying out.
PC Facebook users will feel right at home with its mobile counterpart. Instead of the watered down version of social networking that is common when these sites are transferred to a cell phone interface, this one is very close to the “real thing.” All of the major abilities are here. Under your home screen you can view the latest news from your friends, see recent notifications and approve or deny requests by touching the appropriate button.
With a simple tap of the finger you can also update your profile, poke friends and even write on their walls. You can also manage your friends list as well as send and receive messages and chat with friends that are online. Basically, if you can do it on your computer at home, you can do it on the go. Everything looks almost exactly like the typical Facebook version you have grown to know and love.
Unlike with its predecessor, Facebook Mobile, this app does not rely on text messaging to look up friends or contact them. You can also find new friends through online searches just like you would on the computer.
iPhone’s Facebook app is an invaluable tool for the Facebook junkie. You can constantly update and check on your friends’ status. The only issue I had was that since there is so much going on in Facebook, no matter what version you are using, it does require a lot of scrolling on the page in order to view items like your messages or the postings on your profile page.
Now you can play a Vegas slot machine anywhere and anytime, fits in your pocket and best of all it’s FREE. Dazzling graphics and sound effects make you feel you’re playing the real thing and without the loss of your hard earned money.

Dazzling graphics and sound effects with options and the ability to reset your starting credit amount.
You can bet one credit at a time than spin reel or max 3 credits and it will auto spin the reel. This iPhone App is pretty simple and basic but very addicting. And best of all it is FREE for the time being. I highly recommend this iPhone Game App, I’m addicted to this game and gamblers will love it.
