The best social apps on the iPhone
This location based social is not only easy to use, but also beautifully designed. If you leave the house and go anywhere you can "check-in" doing so not only lets your friends know where you are, but also gives you points. This makes it easy to organize a get-together and avoid potential problems of your friends heading to the wrong restaurant of the same name.
There are many businesses that have become affiliated with this program, and oftentimes they offer specials on services, products or discounts when the user checks in. Add in the fact that the points allow for some bragging rights and you have an app that people love using.
We are not talking about the generic title of the social network, but the actual official Twitter app. While there are great alternatives available like Twitterrific and TweetDeck, the official app is the most focused app and is incredibly easy to use. With a great user interface, you will be on Twitter following and messaging in moments.
The fact that the mobile version allows users to do almost everything that they can on the actual web version is a great benefit. While there may be programs out there with more features, simplicity is bliss when it comes to this great social app.
Sometimes it can take a while to take a picture, upload it, edit it, and send it to friends. Instagram makes it easy to take and share pictures immediately. It is like a social network for photographers; you can even follow and unfollow specific people if you like their style or subject of photography.
Of course, it also has built in support for Twitter and Facebook to allow you to share your masterpieces with those friends as well. This is a great program that you are quickly going to lose many hours on just looking through some of the great pictures.
It would be strange if we did not mention the largest social site in the world. The beautiful thing about the Facebook app is that it has improved dramatically in the last few months.
While the initial releases were not only limited but also contained quite a few bugs, recent releases have been stable and emulate the website version of Facebook perfectly. The app allows users to do just about anything that they would be able to do behind their computer. It is Facebook – but in the palm your hand!
