App of the Day: Reqvu (iOS)

Our App of the Day today is Reqvu for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 4.0 or later.

 

TweakTown image news/2/1/21615_1_app_of_the_day_reqvu_ios.jpg

 

We saw Kevin Rose's Oink app come out recently which takes location based check-ins a step further by being able to rate things inside places you visit and everything in general. Reqvu also does more than the standard check-in using location services and allows you to request videos and pictures from friends at certain locations around the world.

 

You can announce to your friends where you are by checking-in and then in Action Mode you can say that you are ready to take videos and photos for them to see. I saw a beta preview of this several weeks ago and it looked great, I'm going to give the final version a try right now.

Here's what you can do with the Apple Store app on your iPhone or iPod touch:

 

- Buy products on the go and pick them up at your favorite Apple Retail Store, or have

them shipped to your door.

select Apple products.

- Buy an iPhone with just a few taps.*

- While in an Apple Store, quickly purchase accessories on your own with EasyPay

(requires iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S)

- Request help, check in for reservations, and meet up with a Specialist at the store.

App of the Day: Oink (iOS)

By: Array

Our App of the Day today is Oink for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 4.2 or later.

 

TweakTown image news/2/1/21414_1_app_of_the_day_oink_ios.jpg

 

Location based apps such as Foursquare are all the range on smartphones thanks to the introduction of GPS on the phone.

 

Kevin Rose's Milk Inc. has just taken the covers off their first app, Oink. Yeah, like the pig "oink" "oink". It uses your location to find nearby places and instead of checking in, you rate products and services offered by those nearby stores, restaurants and so on.

 

Be careful of your first "oink" notification, it scared the crap out of me. Heh!

 

Oink is an easy way to rate and rank the things around you. Instead of just rating places, you rate the items inside. You could easily find the most popular items on a menu and see if a friend has tried anything there. Then if there's something you like, it's just a single press to rate it and share it with friends.

Well, its not everyday your smartphone can be a superhero, but for some poor fello in NYC, it seems the latest iPhone incarnation has. The MacRumors forum is buzzing from a story that this man found out that his wife was lying to him. The man is actually already filing for divorce, and you can find all of the details in the below quote and picture:

 

I got my wife a new 4s and loaded up find my friends without her knowing. She told me she was at her friends house in the east village. I've had suspicions about her meeting this guy who lives uptown. Lo and behold, Find my Friends has her right there. I just texted her asking where she was and the dumb b!otch said she was on 10th Street!! Thank you Apple, thank you App Store, thank you all. These beautiful treasure trove of screen shots going to play well when I meet her a$$ at the lawyer's office in a few week.
