Facebook is the world’s no.1 social networking website and it is getting traffic of more than millions of people per day. When this site first stepped in, it didn’t have that much value because Orkut, Hi5 and MySpace were being used by everyone. But unfortunately, these sites weren’t updated and people started shifting their gaze towards Facebook, as Facebook has proved its worth by developing and updating its network. Although, Facebook is the network of choice for the masses and it hasn’t gotten the popularity that its enjoys in a single night/day. Developers struggled and worked on it a lot to take it to the highest levels of prominence.
Now see, Facebook is providing continuous updates and advanced facilities to their users in order for them to connect with friends and/or family around the world. This is the point which has been received fondly by every user of Facebook and hence, the reason why Facebook is famous today. Facebook is spreading its facilities to iOS, Android and Windows interfaces. People choose to use Facebook apps on their handhelds because of it’s easiness and improvements that the company provides.
Facebook has just released a dependable update for iPhone and iPad. It have been updated to version 5.4. The best part about it is that the user can send voice messages to any of his/her friends from ‘Friend List’ despite the OS he/she is on. Isn’t it perfect for every iOS user?
Well, this voice-based message facility was already available on Facebook messenger for iOS. But with this update, developers have incorporated it in the main app. Secondly, you can share your happy moments with your friends or loved ones through Facebook via just a “fly” – you can record small video clips and send them to anyone you want on Facebook. When you will step through the share photo option, you will have to activate your camera and a little slider will appear that will enable you to record a video. We are not sure about the definite resolution of the video but we know that it would be much fine.
The updated app even has a new and improved tab which helps you to find your friends near you. It is much improved and is featured in the iOS version. It will even let you see the latest check-ins of your friends in the sidebar. And do you know that you will be able to see your friend’s profile picture on the check-ins too? Well, this version of this app is really brilliant and not just I but everyone will surely love it.
It is free of cost and available for iPhone/iPad and can be downloaded from App Store. Get it and enjoy happy moments with your loved ones. Good Luck!

In a press release that took place yesterday Apple announced their new iPad 4 with a major memory boost and retina display. Previously, the maximum storage option you could get for iPad was 64 GB worth of capacity. Apple has now managed to launch an iPad with double the storage memory – which means that we could have 128 GB’s worth of games, music, photos, videos and what not stored in our favorite tablet.
This 128GB memory is enough for our needs in the palm of our hands. The high capacity of this iDevice will definitely divert our mind from our PC to the new iPad. Apple has meant to do just that. Providing an easier-than-normal way to get connected. This has to be the best news for iPad lovers and people who use it for work and/or pleasure.
Well! Well! Well! This iPad 4 will give you great benefits of running dynamic apps and playing HD videos (without any hesitation). It will include lighting connector, iOS 6 and Retina Display.
This high-capacity iPad will be available on the 5th February – in both Black and White colors with WiFi + Cellular and WiFi-only models. The cost of iPad 4 (WiFi-only) model will start from $799 and iPad 4 (Wifi + Cellular) model will approximately cost $929 in retail.
Both these models will be available soon in the market and online.
Well! Well! Well! Smashing the economy of the market and having a dedicated team of workers is not easy, but its been as easy as pie for Apple since the last few years.
Let us show you some important milestones that Apple has reached regarding their work and development – you will absolutely be forced to think how brilliant these guys are.
In the start of this year, Apple have sold up-to 48 Million iPhones and its a great start for them. iPads have also been sold in huge numbers, approximately 23 Million iPads have been sold till now.
Unfortunately, Mac(s) and iPod(s) haven’t got a good sales-boost this year as compared to the last year’s figure. 4.1 Million Mac(s) were sold but that is not enough for the company because it is a decrement in their sales, this might have lead to little or no profits at all. iPod(s) didn’t do so well and took a downfall from 15.5 Million to almost 13 Million.
Actually, Apple has profited with their iPhone(s) and iPad(s) earning nearly $55 billion with the net profit of approximately $13 Billion. Apple is now concentrating on iOS mostly because Mac(s) are not getting any authentic profits since last one or two years but just iPhone(s) and iPad(s) are running on the race ground and they both iDevices have reached so, so far.
People don’t change their desktop computers too often but handsets are frequently changed by the consumer. Hence, Apple’s decision to concentrate on their highest selling products.
