Did I See U - Free Dating App
Have your App Reviewed by a Professional Writer
The world of communication is changing quickly, we all know it. When I was a kid, telephones still had a rotary dialer, and long-distance calls were made with care because they cost so much. Growing up, my father was one of the researchers helping to ensure that the first transatlantic fiber optical cable could be laid and, with it, far larger bandwidth used for both voice and data transfer.
Here we are in 2009 and things are changing more rapidly than ever. Leading the communication transition is a small but rapidly growing company known as Truphone.
I had the opportunity to speak with Geraldine Wilson, the CEO of Truphone, late this afternoon. Geraldine’s been with the company for only three months. Her enthusiasm for all that the company has achieved, and excitement regarding plans for the future is clear when speaking to her.
The call was precipitated by the company’s announement yesterday that Truphone is bringing Skype to the iPhone.
Within the next week and a half, on both the iPhone and the iPod Touch, the Truphone application will include IM using Google Talk, Microsoft, Skype, and Yahoo. It will incorporate the ability to Twitter, and allow access for voice calls using both Skype and Google Talk. All of that means that the ability to use the application to make free WiFi calls jumps from the hundreds of thousands to the millions of potential recipients. If that’s not a significant change in communication, I’m not sure what is.

Juxaposer is one of those apps I just love.
Then again, what’s not to love?
You take parts of one picture, then parts of another picture, put them together and make a third picture.
You can’t help but laugh or (depending upon whose body your head is placed and your sense of humor) insulted. I love it!
And it just got a whole lot better. A recent update to Juxtaposer …

We took a look at iTap a few monts ago. Since then, the app has been updated and new features. Here’s a fresh look…
Every so often an update comes along that answers everyone’s prayers. Well… Thank the lord! On the seventh day, he gave us text input! iTap’s recent update can almost classify itself as a new app release with all it has to offer. The jist is the same; remotely control your computer from across the room or, best case scenario, the couch. The application that gave us multitouch trackpad support at an affordable price has done it again adding keyboard input that is easy to use and extremely convenient. One of the most noticeable upgrades in the application is to the trackpad itself. In order to keep with Apple’s high standards it has been updated to reflect the new buttonless multitouch pad found on the new unibody Macbooks.
(More and the giveaway after the break.)
I have to admit I was a more than a bit shocked when Apple let Trufone’s app onto the iPhone. I mean, who ever thought a (1) true voip app, (2) with excellent voice quality, (3) that let’s voice calls that aren’t routed through AT&T, would be allowed while (4) Apple and AT&T’s exclusive deal was still in place?
But there it was. Moreover, it works great.
In the weeks since its release Truephone has seen almost weekly updates. It now works with the iPod Touch, offers some great packages and more. But that’s just the beginning.
Beginning January 12 Truphone will introduce Skype calling and IM to its iPhone and iPod Touch application.
For someone like me who, for under $5 a month has unlimited SkypeOut calling, this is nothing short of amazing.
I’ll be speaking with Truphone CEO Geraldine Wilson late tomorrow afternoon and will have a post on the interview, as well as a sneak peak of the new functionality tomorrow night.
For details on Truphone visit the site HERE.
The full press release after the break…
Beejive IM isn’t cheap. There are less expensive, or even free, options if you want a native IM client on your iPhone.
So why would anyone spend the extra cash on Beejive?? Why? Because it is by far the best IM option in the App Store.
Well, the best option just got better. In an update truly worthy of a 2.0 designation, Beejive 2.0 has all the previous features and adds…
-Send and receive voice notes
-Open received documents, images, sound files and movies
-Send and receive pictures
-Added address book linking for buddies
You can get it HERE in the App Store for $15.99

I love my iPhone. I love having my Eye-Fi card wirelessly transfer the pictures I take with my Casio canra to my iMac and, more recently, my Evernote account. I LOVE the fact that, as Wayne over on Gear Diary just posted, Eye-Fi is readying an iPhone app to wirelessly transfer images taken on the iPhone to their user accounts.
As Wayne notes-
Since the iPhone has no memory card slot, the service will work via Wi-Fi to upload their photos to their desktop and then optionally up to one of the 25 different photo sites supported by Eye-Fi. Expect more details from MacWorld this week or you can sign up here to be notified when the application is available for the iPhone.
When I first heard about Eye-Fi last year I didn’t see he need for it. Now I wouldn’t not have it. This new iPhone app makes it even better!
