RockMelt 0.11.1

Social networks are now more important than ever, and anyone who uses the likes of Facebook and Twitter will be aware of the importance of keeping up to date with new posts as soon as they are made. iPhone users have a number of options when it comes to interacting with social networks - the mobile version of Safari can be used to visit the relevant web site, or there are a number of service specific apps to choose from.

The desktop version of RockMelt is essentially a customised version of Google Chrome with a number of extensions added, but the iPhone app is more of a dedicated tool in its own right. In just a few steps you can configure the app to display your Facebook timeline so you can be notified as soon as any updates are made.

From the uncluttered timeline, you can easily keep abreast of the latest news, posts and photos from your friends and add comments and posts of your own without the need to visit the site or fire up the Facebook app. But there is more to RockMelt than just accessing Facebook, the app can also be used to monitor your Twitter timeline ads well as a number of other sites.

The app is pre-configured with a number of news feeds - such as CNN and BBC news - but other feeds from other sites can easily be added. A particularly useful option is the ability to mark content such as links, photos and videos for reading later. This means that you will be able to access the content at a later time even if you do not have an internet connection. If you use the desktop version of RockMelt, this is a great companion tool, but it is also a great app in its own right.
