I was lulled into sweet gameplay just the other day as soon as I opened up Warner Bros highly anticipated game which was ported from many consoles: Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4. If you’re familiar with the Harry Potter series (I mean, who isn’t?), you know his life is full
Over the weekend, Brightkite released version 2.0 of their native iPhone app [App Store, Free] which allows users to update and interact with Brightkite on their iPhone and iPod touch. The new app brings with it quite a few new features including a new friending model, new privacy options, post-by-post update forwarding, and tons of UI enhancements.
For those who don't know, Brightkite is a location-based social networking platform which integrates with other services such as Twitter and Facebook. It's a lot like Twitter, except that you can tag your posts with location info. A good example would be posting a photo at a concert. The photo shows up on the Brightkite stream for that area as well as for anybody who follows you. Very cool!
After months of development, Brightkite has finally released their iPhone application which interfaces with their location-based social network. The application automatically updates your location as you move, providing a much simpler way of updating your location throughout the day. You can also post notes and photos from a place, as well as see others who are near you. Below is a video of the Brightkite app in action:
The folks at Brightkite are now offering a look at the long awaited iPhone app for their popular location-based social network. The application, which is due to hit the App Store in a couple of weeks, will offer access to nearly every feature available in the web-based version. The video shows off the application's ability to track your location, find others near you, and even chat with nearby friends. Check out the video below!
BrightKite announced on their blog yesterday that the native version of the popular social network has entered private beta testing. The posting didn't offer many clues as to what features would be included in the finished version, although it did note that the app is not yet feature complete. The beta program quickly closed as Apple only allows each developer 100 ad hoc authorizations. Those who made it into the program are required to send information on bugs and possible ways in which to improve the app before its submission to the App Store.
Today Brightkite announced that they have plans to release an iPhone version of their popular social network to the App Store. Although the company has an app currently in the works, they want their first release to be rock solid.
We don’t want to release something that’s not rock-solid. And by rock-solid, we don’t mean crashing, but rock-solid from a usability standpoint. The app should be as easy to use as possible. We have some very ambitious goals concerning the user interface, but getting it just right takes time and we’re just not quite there yet.
