Twitter app gets nice update, but adds promoted tweets

by Justin Horn on Mar 3rd, 2011 @ 1:11 pm

The official Twitter app (iTunes) was updated today.  One of the first things I noticed was the new promoted tweets showing up at the top of the tweet list.  Although, this kind of sucks, they also use this new promoted tweets bar to show trending topics, you know, like #tigerblood.

What’s new in Version 3.3:

- Quick Bar, shows trends and other important things without leaving your timeline! Swipe the Quick Bar left/right to cycle through trends
- Trends based on your location
- Cleaner, redesigned Tweet compose screen.
- Autocomplete @usernames and hashtags
- Easier photo uploading
- Find friends using your phone’s contacts
- Improved DM conversation view, now works similar to SMS/Chat
- Cleaned up preferences
- Bug fixes

I’m also hoping “Bug fixes” includes a fix for all my DM randomly showing up as not read.

Thanks for the heads up @daveizzle

RunKeeper Pro free through the end of January

by Justin Horn on Dec 30th, 2010 @ 11:50 am

We love running here at When Will Apple, but I’m sure you already knew that. Chiyin and I got into running about a year and a half ago when we got our iPhone 3GS with built in Nike+iPod support. I tried the RunKeeper Free and the Adidas miCoach apps for a bit during that time, but I decided to stick with Nike+iPod. I’ve recently switched to the Nike+ GPS app and it works great, plus it still syncs with the same Nike+ website I’ve been using for over a year now.

Today RunKeeper announced their Pro version, which was selling well at $9.99, is now free through the end of January:

We know that many of you look at the New Year as a good time to get started with or improve upon your fitness routines. In an effort to encourage more people to get off the couch, and as a show of appreciation to the RunKeeper community for your terrific support for the last two and a half years, we’re making the RunKeeper Pro app free to download now through the end of January!

So if $1.99 price for the Nike+ GPS was enough of an excuse to give up on your New Year’s resolution, now you have no excuse!

Download in iTunes:

RunKeeper Pro [Free]

Nike+ GPS [$1.99]

miCoach [Free]

Official Google Voice app released

by Justin Horn on Nov 16th, 2010 @ 3:05 pm

Google Blog:

Earlier this year we launched a Google Voice HTML5 web app for iPhone users. Today we’re taking the Google Voice experience on the iPhone to a whole new level with the launch of the official Google Voice for iPhone app.

With this native app, you’ll continue to have access to all the major Google Voice features on your iPhone, like:
Cheap rates for international calls
Free text messaging to U.S. numbers
Voicemail transcription
Display your Google Voice number as caller ID when making calls

I never thought we would see the day! Glad Google is taking advantage of the new app store rules.

Bed intruder guy, now iPhone app pitchman

by admin on Oct 25th, 2010 @ 12:06 pm

You’ll remember Antoine Dodson from the “Bed Intruder” song. Since then he’s had the interview autotuned and put on the iTunes store. Now he got another gig, becoming the pitchman for the Sex Offender Tracker app [iTunes link]. Glad his sister was only an attempted rape victim or else the whole Antoine story would not be quite as funny.
