Right. So we have Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Vine, Twitter, Tumblr, and a slurp of others. Another one can’t hur right? That’s what Path said 2 and a half years ago. It wasn’t wrong. A beautiful UI, a great concept, people flocked to it. Fast forward to the present, and Path is dealing with a privacy hell storm. Users reported that the app emailed and called their contacts without their consent. Tsk, tsk, tsk. Instatim aims to swoop in and get the laurels when it users talk privacy.

In case you were wondering, Instatim is an iPhone app that proposes yet another social network, one that’s more personal, more private. You can share simple updates (your status) and availability (busy, not busy or don’t know) with your selected friends picked up from [...]

Loving Instagram? How about a sharing more than just photos? Videos you’re saying? Why yes. Vine to the rescue. With Vine, you can easily share short snippets of your life in motion. The app is free to donwload, you have unlimited free downloads, and pretty much all the functionality you would expect from a trendy social networking app, including following people, sharing, interacting with other people through comments and likes, hashtags or editor’s picks (which is another way of saying featured vines).

Vine has one of those interfaces that tend to get out of your way. Less is more and this is especially true with Vine. To start shooting a new video, press the video button and start filming by touching the screen anywhere. As long as you keep the finger pressed to the screen, the video will continuously shoot. Lift your finger and the video stops. As soon [...]

At first, I must admit I didn’t get all this check-in frenzy. It was as if everybody wanted the world to know where they are. And when you see check-ins like: at home, taking a shower, you start thinking that this is probably one of the stupidest inventions ever. Or, at least, that’s what I thought. Until I downloaded Foursquare on my phone.

In my world, when you say check-in, you say Foursquare. There are a lot of other apps that do the same thing. Now, you can also check-in straight from Facebook. But for me, it all began with Foursquare. As it probably did with most of you.

Now, depending on how you use it, Foursquare can be just another fun app, or a brilliant one. The basic use of Foursquare is checking-in wherever you are. And all you need to do this is an internet connection. The rest is as simple as it gets: after allowing Foursquare to detect [...]
