Multitask while on a phone call with Thrutu for iPhone

Thrutu, by MetaSwitch, is a new app that lets you share location, photos, contacts and more while you're talking on the phone.

Thrutu brings new fun and function to the phone call. It's so simple that you'll wonder why phone calls couldn't always work this way.

Thrutu comes with five buttons:

  • Location: see each other’s position on a map, updating live as you move.
  • Camera: snap and share a photo during a call
  • Gallery: share a photo that's already stored on the phone.
  • Contacts: instantly send contact details
  • Prod: convey touch in a phone call by making the other phone vibrate!

Thrutu needs simultaneous voice and data to meet operate at its full potential, so if you're a Verizon customer, you'll need to be connected to Wifi. However, Thrutu does make it possible to share via SMS for Verizon customers or when the person you're talking to doesn't have Thrutu installed.

I haven't had the chance to play with this, yet, but it looks rather promising. Having quick and easy access to location, camera, photos, and contacts while on a phone call will be very convenient. Sure, I can switch apps to accomplish any of these tasks (except the vibrating), but this is a much better implementation. I hope Apple is taking notes, as I think this a feature that is lacking in iOS.

Thrutu is available for free. Screenshots and video after the break.

Daily Tip: How to shorten links on the fly with Droplr

Trying to figure out how to shorten URLs quickly and easily? Doplr is Out of all the apps on my iPhone, I find Droplr to be one of my favorites. Not only do they have an iOS version, they have a Mac version as well. It's one of my favorite task management apps since it helps me share and organize files.

I find it incredibly useful for uploading images, long URLS, and videos. It also allows you to create shortened links quickly and easily. Long links are annoying and look bad in statuses and posts. If you find yourself needing shortened links quite often, Droplr will help you do just that.

UK satellite TV provider Sky, finally launches Sky Go for iPhone and iPad

After promising that it would be available on July 6, UK satellite TV provider Sky TV has finally released its new app to allow users to access content while on the go. The app called Sky Go will offer users access to all five sports channels as well as a select number of Movie and news channels.

The app is the successor to Sky’s previous app Sky Mobile TV. The new app seems to offer a larger amount of channels but you are now restricted to only using it with two devices; which have to be registered. None of Sky's entertainment channels such as Sky One are included which is very disappointing.
