iPhone Simultaneous Photos Upload On Both Facebook, Twitter in iOS 5 or Later At Same Time

It been a long time I have been using an iphone as my primary phone, I use the full capabilities of the device by using it to full and with large number of useful apps which makes iphone more useful. I am a facebook and twitter user so recently I was trying to find a way which could let me do iPhone Simultaneous Photos Upload On Both Facebook, Twitter in iOS 5.

After some searching I got to know many apps and other ways with which I could update both facebook and twitter. Even for jailbroken iphone there are cydia apps like FBUploader, iSocialShare, qTweeter which lets you upload the same photo both on twitter and facebook but these tweaks no longer work in iOS as if now.

There are speculations and news coming about ios 5.1 which may have facebook integration just like you see for twitter in iOS as shown in the image below.

Some other apps which you can easily install from apps store which allows you to post a photo on both facebook, twitter at the same time are Ping.fm, Instagram,

Tweetdeck

Hootsuite

and Tweetcaster, Pixelpipe.

Another way to do it without using any of the above app is to link twitter to facebook permanently, but posting every tweet and update on facebook from twitter could be really annoying to some of your friends on facebook. You can also try another 0.99$ app called QuickPing which lets you update 40 social networks at once including Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Bebo, FriendFeed, Plurk, or any of your social networks.

Some of the above apps I used for simultaneous photo upload on facebook and twitter worked well, but still none of the above apps actually uploaded the same photo both on facebook and twitter which is way if they upload it on twitter I see a link to view the photo on facebook and vice versa.

After some more searching I found another app called Seesmic which lets you update and view multiple social networks in an efficient and powerful application. Manage multiple Twitter accounts, your Facebook account.

Seesmic is one such apps for iphone which do separate photo upload of the same picture for both twitter and facebook. It lets you update and view multiple social networks in an efficient and powerful application. It has spaces which lets you manage multiple Twitter accounts, your Facebook account.

While doing the update you can include both facebook and twitter while making a update as shown in the image below.

How To Record Audio Messages And Send Them Via Email On iPhone

Earlier we made a post on how to record and email videos on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch which I am sure will definitely help all you iPhone lovers. Today we will talking on how to record audio and to send the same clips via email from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

Voice Memos is an interesting feature of iOS which lets you record audio clips and then use them as reminders. But another feature of the same is where you can email and MMS the same audio clip. With this post I will explain how to do this.

Open the stock Voice memos app which you can find on your iPhone home screen or probably in a folder named utilities.

The left red button is to record the video and the right one with three parallel lines is for the options menu. Press the red button so that the recording is initiated and further you can pause or end the recording by pressing the corresponding red button on the left hand side or the button with a black square on the right respectively. So record the clip and end it so that it is saved.

Whichever audio clip you wish to email or mms, tap on it so that it gets selected and then press the share button at the bottom.

After pressing Share, you will get the two options Email and MMS. Select Email so that you directed to the mail app. In the mail app fill up the To, CC and Subject sections and hit send and your audio clip will be mailed to the desired mail id.

Another way of doing the same is that from the list of the clips, tap on the arrow present at the right hand side of each of the clip. You will be brought to another screen where you can set the memo as a reminder and just below you will see the share option which again is similar to what was on the main screen.
