Are you a smartphone junkie? Do you spend hours going through the App Store or Android Marketplace? Apps can make your life a lot easier and give you a service that had to be performed on a computer just a couple of months ago.

The social networking giant has expanded its platform into the mobile applications field by providing the Facebook app. This app allows users to upload pictures, chat, and add friends from their mobile phone. The best part is that version 3 has worked all of its kinks out. This app is offered for free on the iOS and Android platforms.

You can even upload your stats to your computer to share them with friends or see how many calories you burned.

3) Stanza

How Apple & Facebook will transform the Greeting Card Industry

It was just a few short years ago that I remember sitting in the office of Sequoia Capital with my business partner, pitching Michael Moritz about our new crowd-sourced online greeting card business. By that time I’d had my fair share of visits to Sand Hill Road and had witnessed reactions from VCs ranging from unbridled enthusiasm to polite boredom. But I had not, to my knowledge, ever given a VC a headache until that day, when our pitch left Mr. Moritz rubbing his head in muted agony.

Full Circle! Right in time for the 2011 Holiday Season, perhaps Greeting Cards are finally having their day in the Silicon Valley spotlight. Apple’s recent announcement about its new Cards app for iOS5 has stimulated much discussion about an industry that has been rather resistant to digitization over the past ten years. According to the GCA (Greeting Card Association), today approximately 97% percent of all greeting cards purchased in the US are still purchased in stores – the old fashion way. Many incumbent players in the greeting card space must be feeling somewhat anxious due to Apple’s new found presence in their industry.

Today, in spite of the social nature of greeting cards, very few paper greeting card companies fully leverage the web, social networks, or mobile devices, so the industry is ripe for major change. Whether or not Apple ends up revolutionizing the greeting card industry, I believe its entrance into this market is a pivotal event that will quickly lead to tremendous growth, mainly because millions of consumers will finally be made aware that going to the store to buy their cards is not the only option, and quite often not the best option.
