We all know what eBay is and many of us know how much it has always sucked to only have SMS updates as a form of notification for closing auctions. Ok some of us have had mobile web, but not many of us. So now with this app we are able to watch our eBay account and items we are following.
Many of you may not know what Pownce is. Pownce allows you to send messages, files, links, and events to your friends. Create a network of friends and share stuff. It’s free and easy…
Jim Louderback, CEO of Revision3 said this in a PCMagazine article called: My Guide to Social networks:
I remember when I first heard about the Candy Shop. Tucked behind a real candy store in New York’s SoHo, it opened around 4 a.m. and closed sometime after sunrise. It was tiny, tawdry, and very exclusive. But if you were invited once, you were in forever. Oh, and because it was so small, it sheltered no secrets—everyone heard everything you talked about. After a late night there, I wasn’t sure why I went, didn’t remember what I did, and promised myself I’d never go back. But something seductive kept drawing me in, night after night. Pownce is like that. Founded by Web wunderkind Kevin Rose (whom I work with at Revision3), it’s where the super-cool Web 2.0 kids hang out now—if they can get in.

Myspace did a great job with this app. They have taken the heart and soul of myspace and made it quick and convenient. From the home screen you can control all the aspects of your profile with just a few taps. This app works best on wifi or 3G but have found that even on Edge it is still pretty fast. At the home screen you have quite a few choices. You have My Profile, Friend Status and Moods, Friends Update, Comments, Bulletins, Search People and Settings. It’s great to see how well planned out and set up this app is. The best part of the app is the ability to upload photos to your profile via the camera or camera roll. I use this app daily so much so I haven’t used my PC to access my profile sine i started using the Myspace app. Every part of this app has ran solid for me except for the bulletins. Sometimes when I try to view a bulletin a completely different bulletin loaded from someone thats no even on my friends list. Other than that little glitch this is a very solid app from Myspace.

Remote is an app for controlling iTunes from your iPhone. This is an app I use daily. I have a one year old and we love to listen to music while we play around the house. My PC is located in my living room and my sons play room is around the corner in the second living room so this little app has saved me. With the ability to pause, play and skip through tracks you can make sure you hear your favorite song as many times as you need. You also have control of your entire iTunes library in the palm of your hand. I have found the volume control a great help. The most surprising part of the app is how fast it works. Turn down the volume it happens instantly. This app has worked flawlessly for me so far. This is an app you will find handy in any situation around your house. A job well done by Apple!

As Jared mentioned in his review he is using twitterrific premium. I personally haven’t used twitterrific before this app because I am on a windows based machine so I am using the free version. With that said now that I have been using twitterrific for awhile now I will be upgrading to the premium not because there are any huge differences between the two but because they deserve some monetary compensation for the great app they have developed. So far there are only a few slight differences between premium and free versions. The free version will slip ads in between tweets. They are non evasive and do not get in the way of your twitter experience. The next difference is in the reply screen as Jerad showed there is a “view nearby iPhone location in maps” button. The free version does not offer that feature. The only other difference I can see is the light background feature is only in the premium version. I have to applaud Iconfactory for having this free software with as many features of the premium software. It’s nice to see someone offer a free software thats not stripped to the bare bones so that you will buy the premium version. Either way you chose to go be it free or premium for $9.99 this is one of the hands down best twitter native apps I have used so far. So if you are on twitter grab this app and if you have an extra 10 bucks laying around go for premium so Iconfactory can continue creating great apps.
