By | April 15th, 2012|Categories: Mobile apps, Reviews|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Its been all go recently with Intragram being bought by Facebook and now DrawSomething from OMGPOP being bought by Zynga of Farmville fame for massive amounts of money it seems. Hopefully Zynga will sort out some of the problems that people are experiencing. Where can I play DrawSomething If you still don't know what Drawsomething is (where have you been?) - it is a drawing game similar to Pictionary where you draw a picture and people guess what it is, you can play this with Facebook friends or random people using the iPhone or iPad from iTunes. You can also play it directly from Facebook or on Google Plus. The app has a free game and a paid game - the only difference I can see is that you do not get adverts on the paid game. People are really good at this game, you can see some of the drawings on the DrawSomething Facebook page  iSketch I played DrawSomething on Facebook first because it reminded me of a browser based game which I was addicted to about 12 years ago called iSketch which is still [...]

By | April 1st, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

The headline on Pinpal states - The new casual dating service for Pinterest fans. It’s more than influence – it’s Pinfluence!! I first noticed this today on @dannybrown 's website where he had the shocking title of PinPal Wants to Use Your Friends to Create a Sex Meat Market This created a lot of chatter and comments from various people including many tweets from Jimmy the co-founder of Pinpal - @pinpalwizard who obviously wasn't happy that people were not saying good things about his site, which has just been launched in beta - midnight on the 31st of March. Great timing everyone thinks. Craig andrews from Peerindex tweeted this And Sarah Evans tweeted this Its certainly got a lot of attention since it was launched in beta not 24hours ago.
