Remember RockMelt, the Chrome-based “social browser” that aims to bring your Facebook and Twitter life into your web browsing all the time? The company is now aiming for your iPhone, with a new app expected to debut later this week.
You’ve got to hand it to the folks at Tapbots LLC -- they know how to make a splash, even with something as mundane as a new Twitter client for the iPhone. Tweetbot has arrived, and if you haven’t found the perfect Twitter client yet, it might be worth a look.
The web was built to be open, with people freely sharing and accessing information. However, many employers and schools block access to certain websites to preserve the productivity of their employees and students. Your boss still insists that those reports be finished before you share pictures of last nights exploits on Facebook. What a party pooper.
Sometimes legitimate websites that you actually need to get your work done are blocked, or maybe you're on break you'd like to check your Twitter feed. For those times, you may want to consider setting up and using a Tor network. A Tor network is a network of proxy servers that can reroute your Mac's Internet traffic, bypassing any filters that your company or school may have set up.
It’s hard to imagine after all this time that anyone is actually still holding out for the fabled white iPhone 4, but assuming it’s true, both of you guys or gals will be happy to hear that the mythical device is still on track for a spring release.
So you think you’re a Twitter Jedi master? While you may have mastered the dark art of the retweet and even decrypted the meaning of hashtags, there are still a few tricks and tips that even pro Twitter users may not be aware of.
If you know and love the official Twitter client for iOS, you’ll be right at home in Twitter for OS X. It’s the same slick application, right down to a striking fresh-from-the-iPad appearance, but now sporting a host of Mac-specific tweeting tricks. Unfortunately, it’s still no replacement for twitter.com when it comes to managing your account.
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.
While Apple had previously set up a Twitter account for iTunes quite awhile ago, today the App Store finally got some tweet lovin' as Apple set up an official Twitter account. Shown above, Apple is aiming to promote new apps, as well as tossing out some exclusive app offers!
With the Mac App Store launch today, a new version of the Tweetie Twitter client was released. Just like the iOS version of Tweetie, it was rebranded under the Twitter name, and boasted a few new features. Let’s dive in and take a close look at the new features included in Twitter 2.0 for Mac.
If there’s one thing that’s at the top of every anti-iOS whiner’s list, it’s the lack of Adobe Flash video playback that is sure to be mentioned first and foremost. Thankfully, the arrival of Skyfire squashed some of those dissenting opinions -- and now the app has been super-sized for the iPad.
