It has been nine months since the App Store was launched by Apple to provide a platform to download the latest apps for iPod Touch/ iPhone users. Today would mark a giant milestone for Apple as they hit the billion apps downloads mark. Congratulations Apple for such a great achievement!! Be sure to check out the billion downloads page for the top paid and free apps downloaded so far. It would not take a long time for Apple to reach 5 billion downloads with the exponential growth of the iPod Touch/iPhone usage and we will be keeping you with updates on this.
In addition, we also have a whole lot of cool iPod Touch/iPhone related lists you might want to check out:
Picnik is an online photo editor that has many advanced features that are similar to Adobe Photoshop but has a simpler and more intuitive interface than Photoshop. Just a day ago, Picnik has updated its service to include Twitter as one of its Save and Share feature, among the other sharing services such as Flickr and Facebook. Basically, after you are done with editing your image, you can choose to save and share on your twitter account and choose to save it as a tweet, a profile picture or a Twitter background. This new feature has come about due to a partnership between Twitgoo, a media-sharing service created by Photobucket to post pictures on Twitter.
From the look of it, this Twitter integration has made Picnik to be a really great service for both editing pics as well as sharing pics- all from one place which is really convenient and easy. And if you are really interested in their latest updates and development, be sure to follow their Twitter account for the latest Picnik news. Comment and let us know what you think of this!!
Tweetie is considered to be among the most popular and best Twitter client on the iPod Touch/iPhone and it has recently released Tweetie on the Mac desktop. From the look of it, Tweetie has a neat and slick interface combined with a whole lot of features such as multi-column organization, search feature as well as multiple accounts support. Though, you might want to consider carefully before deciding to fork out $14.95 (only until 14 May, after which the price is raised to $19.95) for Tweetie or else you can still stick with the free ad-supported version for the time being.
Anyway, Tweetie might just prove to be a strong contender to other Twitter AIR clients such as Tweetdeck as well as native Mac Twitter apps like Twitterrific in the ever-increasing list of Twitter clients. Be sure to check out what Mashable and TechCrunch has to say about this for a more complete review about Tweetie. As always, we will be keeping track on the latest development of Twitter clients and apps.

Update: reddit is fixed now. It was broken for about 40 minutes. Seems like it was a database problem. Thanks to the reddit team for fixing it so quickly.
Is it just me or is reddit broken? Seems like when visiting reddit, you will receive an error saying that you broke reddit. Even after refreshing many times, the fail alien still remains and it is quite frustrating for reddit users like me who likes reddit a lot. If you are experiencing the problem as well, please comment and let me know. We will be keeping more update on this reddit fail. Meanwhile, check out our reddit toolbox post while reddit gets fixed: Reddit Toolbox: 16+ Tools, Resources And Apps To Get The Most Out Of Your Reddit Experience
Google has introduced a small but significant feature to its nifty email service, Gmail called “Suggest more recipients” which might proved useful to some Gmail users. Basically, Gmail now suggest to you some email contacts that you might want to include in your recipient list based on which contact you are sending your email to. [You might want to check out our other Gmail posts.]
Here is what the Gmail blog has to say about this:
Once you’ve enabled it from the Labs tab under Settings, you’ll see suggested recipients while composing messages. Gmail will suggest people you might want to include based on the groups of people you email most often. So if you always email your mom, dad, and sister together, and you start composing a message to your mom and dad, Gmail will suggest adding your sister. Enter at least two recipients and any suggestions will show up like this:
This might seems a nifty feature and a quick shortcut for those who often send group-based emails and do not want to miss out on anybody especially if it is an important email. If you found this feature extremely useful, comment and let us know. We will be keeping tabs on more Gmail news so be sure to update here.
