Ban.jo has seen a major overhaul. This version combines all of your social networks and connections into one large catalog of what’s going on around you. Pretty amazing amount of data combining.
Juggling free time to spend with friends and family can be a surprisingly stressful business. How often have you found yourself wondering when to fit people in, or worse of all, finding yourself with some extra time that you didn’t realise you’d have, thus not having a plan sorted out? It’s a blessed curse really, and it’d be so useful to be able to use that time better. Enter the solution: Glomper Free Time.
Glomper Free Time makes it much simpler to share free time with friends, colleagues and even strangers (if you so wish), by hitting the “I’m free” button, selecting a time and duration, with the app determining the location automatically.
Any friends nearby with the app can then see who’s available and what kind of activity they want to get involved in for that period of time.
With enough users, Glomper Free Time should prove a great way of utilizing time better as well as meeting up with potential new friends. Just remember to encourage friends to sign up at the same time as yourself.
Glomper Free Time is out now and free to download.
HipGeo has already proven itself as a great travel blogging app since its launch earlier this year. The latest update should cement that even further.
The update provides full video capability as well as the ability to convert all the photos, video and text uploaded to the service into virtual ‘storytelling journals’ that can be shared on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, as well as shared with the HipGeo community and via email. Consolidated, it should prove a great tool for avid travellers.
The app groups together photos, videos and texts into a location, so it’s simple to browse what’s going on and where as part of a coherent album. A Trip Player and Day Map ensures that movements are clearly shown between the photos, videos and writing, making it easy for viewers to catch up on the traveller’s progress.
Alongside the ability to create such journals offline, before uploading when inside a Wi-Fi zone, HipGeo is a great all-rounder for those who want to blog their travels.

Everyone’s favorite one stop shop of social network apps, Path, has been recently updated to add even more features to lure users in.
Notably, users can share the movies they watch and the books they read with full previews, actor or author details, synopses and reviews. This feature alone should provide some great talking points amongst users.
Other features include an improved camera, new ways to improve photos such as the ability to enhance details in dark or bright photos. It’s now simpler and more personal to invite friends to use the app, and there’s a new notification system that’s more accessible.
Other visual and accessibility changes such as easier video recording and faster photo taking functionality complete the package.
With a regular flurry of updates, Path is fast becoming a very handy social networking tool.
The Path update is available now and the app is freely available for all.
There’s a new photo sharing app on the App Store and this one doesn’t even require the user’s friends to have the app in order to view photos!
DabKick is its name and it comes from gaming company GREE’s CEO, Naoki Aoyagi.
Working much like other apps, it’s easy to add photos from the camera roll album, but the really neat feature is being able to send them to friends instantly, instead of rely on them checking the app. All that’s needed is to have their phone number or email in the iOS device’s address book.
Users and their friends can swipe back and forth through shots that have been taken, without any need for viewers to download photos to their phone. It’s also possible to chat while looking at the photos, and even talk over the phone about them at the same time.
It’s an intriguing way of doing things and could really save some time, rather than having to jump between different apps.
DabKick is available now, for free.
We’ve covered PlayUp before, appreciating its ability to bring sports fans together in their love of their chosen sport. Just in time for the London 2012 Olympics, a major update has been released geared towards keeping users informed during the summer Olympics.
The app offers users all the latest information on their favorite teams and athletes, as well as the latest news on the medal tally. That’s 17 days worth of coverage, across 26 sports, 39 disciplines and 302 medal events. Content is geared towards the geographical location of the user, ensuring that the most regionally relevant content is brought to the forefront when first launched.
It also provides free instant messaging around any event and the ability to virtually hang out with friends in private, as well as direct message them and create social groups.
Whether you’re excited by the water polo or thrilled by the BMX biking, PlayUp should have you covered this summer Olympics.
Check it out now, it’s available for free.
How many nights out around the world rely upon social networking tools to arrange? I’ve done similar just now, tweeting someone to organize meeting up. It’d be easier to consolidate everything and sort out night time plans in one easy to use place, though. This is exactly where new app Wendr features.
Wendr asks users just one question: ‘what are you doing tonight?’ then provides all the tools needed to set a plan in motion. With everyone using Wendr, it’s simple to see which friends are going out, staying in or open to suggestions. Alongside such simple entries, users can enter exactly what they’re doing and where, making it easy to meet up.
Users can only view customizable crews of friends, ensuring there are no privacy concerns, and it’s easy to add friends through Facebook to the app.
For those of us sitting in the office trying to organize evening plans, it should save plenty of time.
Wendr is out now and it’s free to download.
Brewster has less to do with drinking beer than the name suggests. It could make it a heck of a lot easier to arrange meeting up with friends, however.
The app offers a personalized address book experience. Appreciating that everyone is involved with numerous different social networks, Brewster brings everything together to create a personalized and merged view of your contacts.
Working in conjunction with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Gmail, Foursquare and the iPhone Contacts list, Brewster adds images to every contact, while also providing updates and trends, job changes, house moves, and everything else anyone could ever want from such a consolidated service. It’ll even figure out mutual connections which can uncover some surprising results.
Lists ensure that nothing feels too overwhelming, with a favorites list for extra organization. Throughout the app, everything about Brewster is stylish and intuitive to use.
