Photoset, developed and launched by Tumblr, enables users (even those without a Tumblr account) to create and share high-resolution photosets on their iPhone or iPad. Once a set of images is assembled, the photosets are then shared on photoset.com, and can be emailed and posted on social networks, including Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter.

If your business still hasn’t committed to mobile, consider downloading the M.dot application for iOS devices. This free app enables users to quickly create mobile-optimized websites on their own domain. Users simply need to choose a template, select their settings and insert content, such as galleries, blogs and custom pages. The mobile sites can also be built to include click-to-call buttons and maps. Additionally, users can set up their websites as “m.yoursite.com” in order to redirect mobile visitors to their company’s mobileoptimized version.

Create a social website in 60 seconds with the help of Zapd and your iOS mobile device. This free app empowers users to build collaborative, image-focused websites (directly from their iPhone) that can include photos, text and links. Users can also invite people to their social website directly from their phone’s address book or Facebook. While this app appears to seemingly be for events such as trips, weddings or sporting events, it also gives businesses another way to connect with its audience (through images of products, tradeshows, office life, etc.). Perhaps most importantly, each Zapd site is automatically reformatted for the device on which it is being viewed (e.g. mobile, tablet or desktop computer).

SEO Search Ranking
Do you have SEO on the mind? If the answer is yes, download the SEO Search Ranking application for iOS devices ($3.99). This app allows users to monitor the position of an unlimited number of keywords and websites, and supports Google’s human verification CAPTCHA and country-specific search results. Furthermore, SEO Search Ranking continues to update keyword rankings even when the app is not active. However, it is important to note that this app currently only supports Google and information for the top-64 search results.
