Taptivate’s Friends app for iPhone and iPod touch is like that social butterfly everyone liked back in school. It attempts to be all things to all social network users, and succeeds admirably, allowing you to access Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and MySpace in one slick iOS-powered package.
By combining the contacts and feed updates from the all these the social networks, Friends lets you stay keep up with your favorite people’s lives without needing to visit multiple websites or change applications.
The Posts section combines all your contacts' posts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn...whatever networks you use.
Photos and video posted by your contacts are viewable right in the application, and you can post new content of your own as well as comment on your contacts’ posts. Friends even boasts a keypad, allowing iPhone users to make phone calls from inside the app.
The bottom line. Friends isn’t all roses, however. We saw frequent crashes, and some lags in loading new content. However, the app is so polished that we’re confident these kinks will be ironed out by future updates.
iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 4.0 or later.
Excellent integration with a large number of social networks. Thoughtful design makes for a short learning curve.
App crashed frequently during testing. Long application lags during syncronization.
