1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    T-Mobile, the software development company perhaps better known for its wireless service, today released a social media app to the Android Market, called Social Buzz. Social Buzz, although developed initially for T-Mobile dumbphones, has evolved into a what it looks like, a powerful Android social tool. Integrated in Social Buzz are feeds for Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and MySpace. Sadly absent from the initial release is a widget and Google Buzz integration.

    I only tested the twitter integration so far, but here is a quick list of features you will get with Social Buzz. You are able to update your status, retweet natively, reply, favorite, open links, refresh, sort between my updates and all updates, and set up notifications. Now these are rather basic features that I expect all respectable Twitter apps to have included by now. Also, speed was well below average when refreshing. Social Buzz may not be the perfect app, but who knows, this may appeal to those social butterflies who need access to multiple social networks at one time.

    Social Buzz reminds me very much of HTC's proprietary social app, Friendstream, except that it lacks a widget. However, the surprise here is that T-Mobile's Social Buzz does not require a T-Mobile handset, and thus will work on any Android 2.xx device. And you can download it now from the Android Market, for free. Now, let's hope HTC, Verizon, and Sprint take a lesson from this, and release their own proprietary software to the Android Market, or not. So, has anyone had a chance to play with Social Buzz? First thoughts?

    If anyone is wonder to get myspace to work on this including contact sync you need to go to the myspace website on a pc after you sign into the app go to my account and sync and check pretty much all the options so that app has access to your info and not just login rights or it will just login and sign out within 5 minutes :)

    Verizon already has several proprietary apps on the Market available to all I believe. My wife is on Sprint with an HTC Hero and was able to install the Fios DVR app on her phone fine.
