Sync.ME has a new feature – the iPhone “Widgets” link. This facilitates sharing content as well as speedier access to social network profiles. This iPhone widget can be used to capture a business card through the camera, take a note, add a calendar reminder and more. As well the iPhone widget can be used to quickly share things over iMessage/SMS. The app uses Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) differently to enable one to automatically put a URL into a custom field for contact cards, thereafter opening the iPhone widgets section for Sync.ME contact.
This has received criticism as being complicated but the iPhone widget developer says it is not the case. However, according to one reviewer, jlword. “its not as seamless and efficient as Microsoft’s implementation though. Seems they are even implementing a ‘Me’ card. Sounds shamelessly similar the Windows Phone ‘Me’ Tile where you can post to your wall, see notifications, check in and set chat status. In the Peoples Hub Windows Phone automatically updates contacts image, demographic info, you can view friends latest posts, read comments, share comments to posts, view Facebook pictures of contact, comment on pictures, view tags on photos, tag photos, write on a friends facebook wall, chat via Facebook and more right from the Peoples Hub (Windows Phone Contacts) without launching separate apps.”
