You can download numerous apps on your iPad for social networking on FaceBook, Twitter and for sharing photos on Flickr and Instagram. But how about a app that has everything in one and it looks like a well laid out magazine?
FlipBoard for iPad has eveything, all in one. Add all your social, photo, blogging sites and even popular magazines and it lays it out as pretty as a picture. You can update and upload to all the sites from within the app. I can't express how great it flows with finger flip technology, just like you were flipping through a book.
We are big Twitter fans and when we saw that it actually has the articles people tweet within the app ready to read, we were sold. The same with FaceBook and all the other social sites.
Google reader is also included so you can easily keep up with your favorite blogs. This app is FREE. Did we mention that?
If this app is not in the running for the of app the year, it should be.
We give this app 5 out of 5 zombies.

Last summer I posted photos on Twitter/Yfrog of people there were out my personal comfort zone. I used the iPhone app called SneakyPix for .99 after several other "free" and paid apps failed.
The only issue I currently have is minor. There is a snap sound and it does defeat the purpose if the unsuspecting target can hear the click of a camera. You must flip the sound off on your phone on the left. But, some things are worth the trouble. It does all the work for you after that small detail. Just flip off the sound, open the app, tap it and go catch some mullets and butt cracks.

Proximity sensor enabled, screen goes black when held up to ear
Phone vibrates with each photo snap

In app photos:
If you are a good photographer, your photo should speak for itself. Photos tell a small story for the person looking at it to interpret for themselves. Periodically, you want people to know exactly what you were thinking at that moment. Or maybe you just want to make some funny captions, like me. LabelBox app for iPhone is FREE and it does just what it says, it labels photos. It has a very easy interface, swipe motion, tap type and several options for something so simple.
(Note: I used other apps over the photo for visual effects, which takes away from the crisp labels)
There are numerous labels to choose from and a optional In-App purchase for another bundle.
If you try this app for FREE, give the makers a great rating in the App Store. They work hard and give us hours of fun for free after all.
