  • It's not available in the UK market :S
  • Yeah. I'm fed up of how us-centric apple news is. I can't imagine the tech radar or electric pig sites talking about Siri as male or the new bbc apps as if that were the case everywhere.
  • Apple is a US company............
  • Well, maybe that's because this is not only an American website, but Apple is an American company. Get over it, moron.
  • No reason to be rude.
  • Apple might be an American company but it's firmly in a global market.
    With a website such as TiPb they are also used buy a global audience.
    I think that iOS users in other country's like myself read about certain apps then look forward to using them but when we go to download then a little sign appears to tell us that it is only available in the us app store.
    Can be quite disappointing.
    Myself I think that TiPb do quite a good job in catering to other nations with their reviews of products.
  • This sovels my don't have a Poken problem! I'll just say I don't want to be poked, I want to be Bumped.Reply by on July 19th, 2009 at Sunday, July 19, 2009 @ 3:25 pm@Laurin, and I shall Bump you!
  • WOW,
    This could lead to me chatting with some Android user ladies. LOL!!!
  • WhatsApp Messenger fulfills all my needs, in this field.
  • Not available for ipad2 in Canada....
  • Tried it while I had a galaxy S2, and it sometimes took hours before recieving texts. Whatsapp is more reliable.
  • Is it? Most of my friends are using Kik at the moment, no idea why, and nobody I know ever used WhatsApp so I never had a reason to purchase that.
    Bit disapointed this is US only- but only a little.
  • Laura: Good point about thiiknng globally vis a vis Apple's vetting system. I think Guidestar would be one of several partners. There's also TechSoup Global.
  • How is this better than GTalk?
  • I am very inesretted to know if you are planning on adding new translations of the bible to GloBible? I am specifically inesretted in the translation called God's Word.
  • It is available on the American, Irish, Middle East, Dutch and French app stores but not the UK and Canadian. Seems a little odd.
  • Infinity blade 2 free?
  • I hope that samedoy I can learn how to put my thoughts into words like you. I am a novice writer just starting to learn how to format and write. I really admire your work.
  • While I love all these apps trying to push SMS into obsolescence, none of them will succeed. Until one of them does it's just annoying having your friends and family asking you of you use x app for messaging. The only thing worth using currently is the Facebook messenger app because of the huge user base.
    But until ALL phones come pre installed with a universal an ubiquitous SMS alternative, all of these apps are a novelty.
  • Are you kidding me.... Facebook messenger app... the only one to use. You obviously need to get out more as other messeging apps "INCLUDE" Facebook. This app is actually a good idea and will be better when released for everyone and allows free calling like Viber
  • I personally like Groupme over all others, its fast, its reliable and its on all other platforms
  • Games Will Change...
  • Hello Kai wong Will you plseae do a video review with the canon Eos 16-35 L2 Lense?I viewed your review on the 17-40 lense ,considering buying the 16-35 for landscape and arcatecture.
  • Video kept stopping; never could watch it continuously or in total. Seemed like it was probably an excellent video.
  • Yeah, Google left the real estate business. The MLS systems are just too regional, and I believe that Google thought that it would have a battle on its hands. In the long run...I guess they just felt that it wasn't in their best interests...
