CES is always a big show every year, even if it doesn't always produce much in the way of Apple or iOS news, but there was more than enough going on with Apple and its competitors.

Twitterrific was one of the earliest standout options on the App Store for mobile Twitter perusal, but the field has become incredibly competitive since. Cue the new Twitterrific 5 app – a fresh standalone release rather than an update to the existing Twitterrific – which comes across as a reboot for the popular tool, at least in terms of aesthetic.

Well, here's the week that was. Get at it. (Note, not Santa to our right.)
The iPhone was a tipping point for social media, enabling immediate sharing of life events with loved ones. But with so many different networks now drawing our attention, what we really need is an app to pull them all together in one place. That’s the concept behind Moment.me, which tries to be an aggregator for photos, videos, and tweets pulled from Facebook, Twitter, and other services, presenting them in a real-time, multi-point of view layout, neatly organized by event.
