[prMac.com] Walnut Creek, California - net4mac is a social network built exclusively for Mac users. This is a powerful internet service that allows you to make new friends sharing the same passion for the Mac platform, build new professional relationships, create groups of interests and much more. We are very proud to announce today the new version of net4mac for the iPhone.
Version 1.0 for iPhone allows you to connect to the service, read your messages, send a new message, browse profiles and search members matching your preferences. The user interface is fully optimized for the iPhone. More features will be added in future versions. It's just the beginning. The iPhone version costs only $4.99 (USD). All updates will be free and we have a strong pipeline for new features.
The Mac version of the net4mac application is still free and will remain free. The Mac version allows you to:
* Create an account and login to the service (internet connexion required)
* Create your profile including your location, job, activities, skills and the type of Macs, iPhone, iPod, etc. that you own.
* Add friends to your profile and manage them (remember, the service is only for Mac users)
* Contact members, send invitations to join the community, and manage your messages
* Create your own groups of interest and invite friends to join them (people using the same application, in your same location, sharing the same passions, etc)
* Browse and join groups you find interesting - share discussions, events and more
* Create events and invite Mac users (this is useful if you want to announce the presentation of a product / service, etc)
* Search members using different of criteria (for example, you can find people that use the same Mac or software)
* Discover people around you (other Mac users in your neighborhood)
* And many more functions
There are many good reasons to use an application instead of a website:
* Better integration between Mac OS X technologies and the features.
* The community is easy to access from the Dock
* You can send invitations using your AddressBook
* You can add/remove members with public profiles to/from your AddressBook
* You can add a picture to your profile or a group from your webcam
* You can see the number of messages in your dock (like Apple mail)
