Google releases Photovine for iPhone, a photo sharing app with a strange twist

Google has released another photo sharing app for the iPhone, this one called Photovine and actually made by Slide. Slide was acquired by Google some time last year.

Watching the video it appears that it is aimed at some sort of photo word association type game. One person starts the photo conversation with a picture then friends add other photos with a similar theme. It is all a little bit strange if you ask me!

What's also hard to figure out is where it fits in with Google's other photo sharing services, like Picasa, Google+, and Pool Party. When do you use one rather than the other? Is it variety or lack of foucs

Apple introduces volume purchasing for business

Apple has sent out a notice to developers that they're introducing volume purchasing for business. This is something I asked about recently, after Apple mentioned that Final Cut Pro X would be available in volume, and it's good to see Apple's not keeping it for themselves. In fact, it looks like they're going even further.

Daily Tip: How to tethered jailbreak iOS 5 beta 3 via Redsn0w 0.9.8b2

Since Apple recently released iOS 5 beta 3, you may be wondering whether or not you can jailbreak as you could with beta 1 and beta 2. Fortunately, beta 3 is also jailbreakable.

But again, we'll warn you that beta software has its own qualms to begin with so if you're not comfortable with a few more bugs, we urge you to stay away. Also keep in mind a lot of jailbreak tweaks and apps have not yet been updated to support iOS 5. If you absolutely need to get your beta jailbreak on, follow along for another walk-through.

Apollo: Browser+Facebook chat optimized for Google Reader

VoyagerApps have updated their iPad web browser, Apollo, with optimization for Google Reader.

Before Apollo, you could only browse the single-column iPhone layout of Google Reader on the iPad. So we tweaked the Google Reader web app in Apollo and changed it to a two-pane layout, just like the Email app. You can browse folders and titles on the left pane, and when you tap on it, content shows on the right pane - perfect for iPad.

  • Elegant and powerful Facebook integration - FB chat is at the right bottom corner of Apollo, just like FB on computer browser. Tap on it and you see contact list, tap on a friend to start chatting, it's that easy.
  • Video Popout - Apollo is the only app that lets you enjoy web and video at the same time. Tap on the Video button on bottom toolbar to try it out.
  • Best Google Reader for iPad - Apollo optimizes Google Reader for iPad in a beautiful two pane layout. Tap Reader in home screen to give it a try.
  • Tabs - The top tool bar only has 4 buttons to leave max room for web tabs. Tip: swipe left/right on web tabs to navigate your tabs.
  • Gesture rules - Put two fingers on web page and swipe left to go back previous page. Two fingers swipe to right to go forward. Try it and you will fall in love with it.

Apollo: Browser+Facebook chat is available for free. Screenshots after the break.

Poll: How do you feel about Netflix's new pricing?

How do you feel about Netflix's new pricing?

If you're in the US and you subscribe to Netflix, we'd like to know how you feel about the new pricing they announced yesterday? If you're only into streaming, not much has changed. If you want unlimited DVDs as well, however, you need to cough up an extra $6 a month.

Maybe DVDs are a relic to you, or a bag of hurt, and you haven't watched optical media in years. Or maybe, since Hollywood still can't get their digital release act together, they're a beloved part of your home theater experience.
