When most people think about a sponge, they think about a cleaning device that is there to soak up all of the stains and messy spills that happen in the kitchen or elsewhere around the house. The Sponge app for iPhone is similar with information. Sponge iPhone app soaks up the important information from a number of different sources and then displays that information on the iPhone for you to see.
Many important sites supported
In terms of actual sites that are supported directly through the Sponge interface, you will find that there are a number of different sites out there that you can directly access. These include important web 2.0 sites like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube and Gmail, all of which you can add by name to your site. At the same time however, you can also get RSS feeds from any website that will support them and because of that you can follow those feeds too when you are using your online web interface.
Accounts supported but without full functionality
Before you start to get the impression that iPhone Sponge app is the greatest iPhone application to ever be created (which it would be if it could actually fully support all of the platforms discussed in the previous section), it is not full functionality with all of these sites. You can follow people’s accounts on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Flickr but you cannot get full functionality in all of these websites.
This means that Sponge iPhone mobile application will not let you do things like cycle through the different friends on the list of an account you are following. It will not let you change any of the settings on your own account. It will however let you keep up with what is going on in these accounts and that alone can certainly save you a lot of time if you use it to keep track of all of the different accounts that you currently follow.
Sponge app for iPhone is an interesting app that can certainly be your super follower app for the iPhone. You can simply put all of the things you follow online here and then follow them whenever you have a few minutes of time. However, things like online comics are excluded from this app so there are still some problems with it. Factoring those into the equation leads us to give Sponge iPhone app a final score of 8 out of 10.
