Roamz App is a location-based application that helps people find out what is happening at places around them in real-time. So much unfiltered noise in the social web, it's extremely difficult for individuals to make sense of the activity that is happening around them, much less things they are actually interested in. The application intelligently curates social activity from multiple networks and seamlessly integrates it with content contributed from the Roamz community, giving users a holistic view of what is buzzing nearby. It's like social goggles for the real world, showing you places and activities according to your personal interests and preferences. The more you use Roamz the smarter it gets, so no matter where you are you will get the inside word from those in the know, and never miss out on local gems again. Best of all-Roamz is free. For more information check out www.roamz.com or via iTunes.
2 Cam Shoot App let's you utilize both cameras on your iPhone so that you can take video recording to the next level. Let's face it, just about every video would be better with you in it. 2 Cam Shoot lets you switch between the iPhone's front and back cameras while recording video. Without this app, the only way you can record a video that showcases yourself and something else is by attempting to swing the phone around, losing sight of the screen and just guessing what image is being recorded. Certainly not a smooth option. 2 Cam Shoot ends that awkward bumpy camera move. By using this app, you are able to simply switch between the front and back cameras by just touching the icon on the screen. Video recording on your iPhone will never be the same. Put yourself into the video and make every shoot a 2 Cam Shoot. The application fee is 99 cents. You can get it for free by registering at www.2camshoot.com.
