So one thing that I think would be interesting is reviewing
for mobile devices. Is
there an app for
the iPhone or BlackBerry that you think might be interesting and
not quite willing to spend the money to find out? Let
me know and each week I will take a look
at one app and let you know how useful I found it, and if possible,
talk to the
creator to get their view points on why the app was created and some of
trial and tribulations from the development. Send
me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
or drop a
line in the forum here.
To start with I'll take a look at the
FaceBook app for the
application lets you view
your FaceBook page on the go and provides all the typical information
to see. It lists
the top stories from
your friends, which means the most recent information that is entered
status updates, pictures, comments, etc. You
can also filter it down to specific
aspects to only get updates on status, pictures, posted items, or live
sliding the second tab to the desired sub category.
You can get
your notifications and requests by selecting the
appropriate tab on the top. With
iPhone you can even upload photos directly to your own FaceBook page
take with the camera.
You can also
manage your own profile. Changing
your status on the fly or updating
your information on the go is simple and easy.
If you are an
avid FaceBook user this is a great app for
being able to maintain contact with your friends and keep them up to
what is happening with you with a very simple and intuitive interface.
