Caktus is a New Social Music Listening Experience for the iPhone

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Countless social networks hit the App Store all the time, but it's not every day that you see a new app completely dedicated to making your music-listening experience a little more social and fun. Caktus, a new app from Caktus Media, was announced at SXSW in Austin, Texas last weekend, and it aims to do just that.

Caktus really, really wants you to listen to the music on your iOS device through their app rather than Apple's standard Music.app. Why? Because Caktus wants to share everything you're listening to with your friends in real-time. In return, if you have friends who also use Caktus, you'll be able to see what they're listening to as well. The app also lets you see what music is being played among those physically near you, as well as see what music is trending amongst your friends.

You can grab Caktus on the App Store for free right now.

Private Social Networking With Burst

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Many people have privacy concerns when it comes to social networks such as Facebook, understandably so, especially when dealing with images of family members such as children.

Burst is the latest app hoping to encourage users away from bigger networks, with a focus on sharing just with close friends and family. The app requires just one touch to capture then store and organize mobile videos and photos. It's then simple to share such moments with the special people in one's life.

Burst can tag and title those moments along with information from the user's calendar with everything securely stored in the cloud.

Users can restrict who views the content and be notified via Push notifications, email or SMS when a family member comments on the images.

For those looking for a more secure social networking app, Burst will prove invaluable.

Burst is out now and it's an Universal app.

Humanist Plus Goes FREE

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Not to be too crude, but some may find it shocking that a woman's internal cycle is not the only type of regular timed occurrence present in the human body.  These cyclical motions don't only apply to women either, because they can effect many different aspects of the human experience, including one's physical, psychological, and intellectual characteristics.  Far fetched as it may seem, there is solid science to back up these assertions, and thus the Humanist Plus software was born.

The main concept behind this tool is to find out key pieces of information about your significant other, professional collegues and even friends, so that you can synchronize and schedule events so that everyone can help get the best out of each other.  If you are skeptical about this kind of application, now is the perfect time to make the plunge, because it is now completely free.  Give it a glimpse and see if helps lead to a better life.

Words With Friends Becomes Words With Celebs In New Tournament

iPad App - Designed for iPad

Newtoy Inc has been picking up some great press of late for its brilliant Words With Friends game, including our four star review. The popular multiplayer app is reminiscent of a word-based board game you may know (that rhymes with dabble) and is now available for the iPad as Words With Friends HD.

The biggest print title in Dallas, Texas, D Magazine, recently featured Words With Friends and its creators, fellow Texans Paul and David Bettner, as its cover feature and is now launching its own Words With Friends celebrity tournament. With 64 places available, the tournament is open to all and will include D Magazine staff, the Bettner brothers and even Dallas Cowboys’ Martellus Bennet among the players. According to Newtoy, Words With Friends is popular with members of both the Cowboys and Texas Rangers.

For your chance to play, click here and sign up before June 1.

Can’t remember a name? Quick, Whoodl it!

Back in the early nineties, nobody would have understood the meaning of “Googling” something, but Google is now one of the most powerful companies on the web. The team at INYFX, Inc hopes that Whoodl will follow the same path. While not a search engine, this app does return fast results – the names of people you’ve forgotten. You know the scenario, someone spots you across the room, waves and begins making their way over to you. You smile back, attempting to stay calm as the icy realization that you’ve forgotten their name hits. So what do you do? Hope that a simple “Hello, how are you?” suffices? Maybe, but what if you have to introduce them to someone else who joins you? The first thing you need to do is to PAY ATTENTION next time you meet someone. If that doesn’t work, download Whoodl.

Whoodl is a very simple app that allows you to quickly tap in a name along with certain keywords and save them for quick access later. Dave you met at the golf course goes in as Dave Shore with the tag “golf”. Next time you see him out of context at the supermarket and struggle for his name, type golf into Whoodl and you’ll have your name in a matter of seconds. The company claims the app is far faster than the iPhone’s address book and that it’s designed for those names you wouldn’t necessarily add to your Contacts anyway.

We do worry that adding multiple names to a single tag could lead you to calling someone by the wrong name entirely, but this is nevertheless an interesting app that could help you out of some very sticky social situations.

Finally, A Facebook App For iPad

Posted by Ben Harvell on May 12th, 2010
iPad App - Designed for iPad

Why isn’t there a native Facebook app for iPad yet? It’s not like the company hasn’t had the time or lacks the resources to update its existing iPhone app. For the time being, iPad users have to choose between blowing up the iPhone app to almost unusable dimensions for the larger screen or use the web app which, to be fair, is acceptable.

That said, it does seem strange that such an obvious iPad app hasn’t yet made its way to the App Store. Thank heavens then for the guys at sobees who have taken it upon themselves to put together a Facebook client for the iPad and, from our initial inspection, have done a brilliant job!

Blurring the lines between an RSS reader and Twitter client, sobees for Facebook manages all of the most commonly used sections of a Facebook account such as Status updates, links, images and video.

The interface is mapped out like the newspaper apps we’ve become accustomed to on the iPad with each section dedicated its own scrollable space. One cool feature is the Breaking News section that grabs a recent wall post or status update and positions it as a breaking news headline for your friend group. The Latest Hot Images section shows recently posted images and lets you swipe through them direct from the front page of the app.

While it takes a little time to load, the People section serves as an attractive who’s who of your Facebook friends, using their profile images as a wall of pictures. The Photos section takes a cue from the iPad’s own Photos app, grouping albums into Event-like galleries. Sadly, the pinch features in Apple’s native Photos app doesn’t feature here.

Events is one of the most handy of sobees for Facebook’s features, a simple calendar interface with small icons on each day to denote a birthday or other event. In most instances throughout the app, clicking on a friend’s profile picture brings up a neat contextual menu that offers a route direct to their profile.

Of course, sobees for Facebook isn’t just for consumption, it also allows you to update your Status, comment on videos and images and post on your friends walls. At the moment it seems you have to manually update via a small refresh button with no obvious option we’ve found to auto-refresh. That, however, is a small price to pay for an excellent app that, for the time being, is free and provides a beautiful alternative to Facebook’s web app on your iPad.
