I don’t think I’m alone in saying that Facebook’s announcement yesterday at their headquarters in Menlo Park, California, didn’t get me stoked up one bit. I didn’t even realise it had started until I checked my Twitter during a break from revision in my university’s library and discovered that the event had temporarily hijacked my feed. So, to procrastinate a bit, I started watching the live feed and reading a bit more about it on various technology blogs. The results, unfortunately, didn’t impress.
When popular Facebook games hit the App Store, it’s always fun to see what their iOS counterparts are like. Candy Crush Saga has long been a Facebook favorite, but just recently made its debut for the iPhone and iPad. Find out what made Candy Crush Saga quickly reach the top of the App Store charts right after the break. (more…)
I can hear what you’re saying, this week’s poll isn’t particularly iPad related – on first glance at least! I really want to know how you like to share things you find, and like, with your friends and the world?
Although this does affect the iPad, as many apps have built-in options for sharing (like Twitter in iOS 5), I actually want you to be more general with your answer – if every possible option was available to you, what service would you use to share?
Do you love to like things, or prefer to stumble them?
Are you an early adopter who uses Google +1 wherever it’s available, or is there a new service that’s making waves?
It’d be awesome to hear your thoughts in the comments as well, especially if you selected other!
Feel free to share the poll with your friends… (HA.)
Facebook has not yet seen fit to introduce a version of its official iPhone app optimised for the iPad, even though we are all waiting to hit the Install button and download. Mark Zuckerberg now famously said that the iPad isn’t mobile, suggesting that we may never get a native Facebook app.
Unless you want to use the pixel-doubled iPhone app, or browse in the somewhat-incompatible website in Safari, your only other option is one of the third-party applications available, such as Friendly.
