App.net launches ‘Passport’ app for iPhone to manage accounts, find browsing clients, sign up for free
New Twitter-like social network App.net has launched an iPhone and iPod touch app called “Passport.” The application serves as a simple way to manage App.net accounts, edit your profile, and find and follow other App.net users. Importantly, the “Passport” app does not serve as a browsing client for an App.net feed, but rather as an app primarily focused on finding third-party App.net clients.
Notably, the app allows you to create a free account. Previously, to get a free account, users needed to have been invited by an existing user.
