    I only recently discovered Tweetings for the iPhone, iPad and Mac. Like Echofon, it syncs across all devices, but it’s much easier to use (similar to the original Twitter app on the mobile devices). I’ve been a long time Echofon Pro user, but the UI of Tweetings just suits me better.

    Making a Great personal ad – Be honest – As I stated above what exactly is the point of misleading someone, it is going to only lead to disappointment for both of you. If somebody says they are seeking for an athletic type it really is unlikely they will alter their mind on a very first date and they’re also not most likely to trust anything else about you.

    SyncQuik should be added to the “friends and contact management” category. It’s more versatile and practical than bump and its bring a four square-esk approach to contact sharing and daily interactions. We’d love to tell more of our story.
