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.

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.

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.

Those of us who regularly attend networking events for work, and those who just hang out at plenty of parties will appreciate this dilemma. You meet someone, you want to get to know them better, either for personal or business purposes, but you forget their full name and lose the chance to add them to Facebook. What do you do?

There’s a solution in the form of new app Friendthem. The location-aware app fixes this problem by allowing users to connect on the spot and immediately friend each other on Facebook. There’s no need to look up their name or get the exact spelling correct, the app sorts all that out for the user making it an ideal way to hook up online with the person standing next to you, if you so wish.

It’s not perfect just yet, as the app relies on people to have Friendthem installed, but it is a great step towards making networking much faster and simpler.

It’s free to download, so what have you got to lose in trying it at your next event?

Tumblr Reaches Version 3.0

One of the most popular blogging platforms out there, Tumblr has recently updated its iOS app.

Version 3.0 comes with all manners of new features, most notably a completely revamped and sleeker dashboard. Increasing compatibility with the iOS format, tap based functionality is improved and swiping through the composing interface has been introduced. It should all make for a much simpler app, ensuring users can blog content even faster than usual.

High resolution photo support is now included, proving particularly beneficial to those of us with the new iPad and iPhone 4S, although the app isn’t Universal just yet.

For those without a consistent internet connection or those currently abroad, offline support will be a great hit with users able to post new blogs, reblog content and comment on others’ work all while offline.

Spotify support and the ability to search tags is also supplied.

The Tumblr update is available now.

Here’s an app ideal for the romantics amongst us. Weesh is all about generating romantic relationship timelines from the user and their partner’s Facebook profiles. Essentially, it’s a lovely way of keeping track of the history between a couple.

Right from the outset, the app collates information from each person’s Facebook account, thus creating a timeline of the memories. Weesh then offers a shared photo album for the couple so they can upload moments they’ve had together, as well as a mapping feature to keep track of where they’ve visited together.

Weesh helps plan for the future, also, with the introduction of the Weesh board, allowing couples to add things they’d like to do, as well as a section that reminds them of special events such as birthdays or anniversaries.

Ultimately though, Weesh is a sweet way of bringing together a variety of memories. Couples are bound to enjoy this free experience.

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.

Waze has been a fascinating example of the power of crowd sourcing since its inception in 2010. We’ve loved it ever since with its steady stream of updates keeping things fresh. Now comes one of the more ambitious updates.

Update 3.2 now provides Waze users with the means in which to keep track of real-time gas prices along their route, along with the ability to update prices themselves, where neccessary.

The new category search makes it simple to check things and at certain participating locations, it’ll even be possible to receive exclusive in-app discounts on gasoline. Partnerships have already been arranged with Kum & Go, Mid-Atlantic Convenience Stores (Exxon and BP stations) and Vintners Distributers (Shell) locations.

One other major new feature is the addition of waypoints to coincide with the new categories, including gas stations, parking lots and car repair shops.

Waze has little competition given its free nature, but now there’s all the more reason to check it out.

Waze is out now for both iPhone and iPad. It remains free.

Plenty of apps are already out there offering photo filters but few offer over 300 different filters. That’s what FilterMania 2 offers and, even better, it’s free this weekend.

The app divides up the filters into 20 different categories, ensuring something for everyone. Categories such as nature, light, frames, space, retro and urban should prove particularly popular with FilterMania 2‘s filtering technique adding a photo layer on top of original photos, making for a stunning effect.

It should prove an ideal way to improve upon a typically ordinary photo, while adding a nice touch to already cool photos. Filter opacity can be adjusted to accomodate many tastes, before sharing via numerous services such as Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and Flickr. A Live Feed option allows users to see other people’s creations for inspiration.

Check out the video below for an idea of what to expect. FilterMania 2 is out now and it’s free across this weekend.
