[prMac.com] Albuquerque, NM - Big Stone Phone is happy to announce immediate and free availability of updates to its three popular iPhone and iPod Touch applications: TalkingPics v1.1 - the audio recorder/picture taking field data gathering tool, iGraffiti v1.0.1 - the super fun paint-on-photos and share app, and Twittelator V1.1, the extremely popular full-featured Twitter client for the iPhone with the ability to send a map of the user's location with one click and automatically upload snapshots to TwitPics.
"We coded our brains out for 100 days to get our apps shipped at the same time the AppStore opened and the iPhone 3G's became available on July 11th. But we had more features we wanted to include in our apps, and we've listened to the outpouring of user requests. We have spent the last 3 weeks getting these added," said Andrew Stone, CEO of Stone Design and founding partner of Big Stone Phone.
TalkingPics v1.1 features the ability to upload audio and images to the desktop via a new free application called TalkingPics Transporter for Mac OS X 10.4 and later. Download and instructions are at TalkingPics site at stone.com along with a complete feature and fixes list.
iGraffiti v1.0.1 delivers increased stability. "What's amazing is the cool art iGraffiti users have been uploading to the the iGraffiti community Art Space. Visit Stone Design - and it works on iPod Touch as well as the iPhone!," said Stone.
Twittelator V1.1 adds a bunch of new features including builtin web browsing so you can follow links from within Twittelator, persistent searches so you can "re-search" your favorites, and the ability to hide the Emergency button. Lefties can swap the Twitter button, and Tweets dynamically size the font so that they are as big as possible. Complete feature list is available at Twittelator site along with User raves! iPod Touch users can also take advantage of Twittelator and iGraffiti.
The applications are available for download and use today directly from your iPhone or computer by clicking the download links.
