Seems like all the big news this week is app-related! Twitter has a new iOS app update, Batman flies in with a slick new Arkham City game, OnLive is coming to iOS and a whole lot more. Hey, maybe someday we’ll all be giving virtual gifts for the holidays -- no more wrapping paper and bows, no more piles of gifts under the tree. While you ponder that future, read on for all the news from Thursday, December 8, 2011.
Totally bummed that Facebook doesn’t have an official app for the iPad almost a year later? You may not care too much after downloading the free Facepad app, which could be the slickest third-party app yet for the social network.
In the Apple world, Tuesdays are generally exciting days when Cupertino releases new products into the world. Between The Beatles on iTunes and Google Voice in the App Store, what else could pop up? Turns out that the official Twitter app also has some surprises in store for us.
Wednesday was an exciting day to be an Apple fan, but not so much for iPad users (save for that brief iOS 4.2 preview). All of that changed when the clock struck midnight and Twitter released an update to their official app, bringing universal compatibility.
It's the moment we've all been anticipating for quite some time now. After this week's absence of the Tweetie 2 app in the iTunes App Store, reports are circulating that the official Twitter for iPhone app should be going live in the App Store any second now.
