A moment is basically a brief post that is accompanied by a photo or group of photos. You can save each moment with a people, place, or custom tag and rate it on a scale of one to five stars.
One feature that the creators really nailed Momento Day Viewis the social media integration. It allows you to quickly and effectively pull in feeds from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Last.fm, Foursquare, Gowalla, Digg, YouTube, Vimeo, and custom RSS/Atom Feeds. After adding these feeds, you can then browse a day-by-day view of all your online activity.
Momento makes all these moments and feeds fully searchable. This means that if you want to find out the last time you checked in at your favorite restaurant or find an old tweet that had something you’d like to reference again it’s only a search away.

I’m going to do some quick iPhone classes for journalists at the Star Tribune. I’m thinking half of a class would focus on iPhone basics, half on must-have apps. Let me know what I’m missing. The app list is pretty solid, I think, since that list exists in various forms pretty much everywhere. I’m more concerned about iPhone basics, particularly for people who might be new to smartphones completely, or iPhones in particular.
Adapted from our award-winning iPad app, the new TED iPhone app allows users to browse and watch TEDTalks, videos ranging from 3 minutes to 18 minutes in length. TEDTalks feature great ideas from speakers on everything from genetics and geopolitics to sculpture and creativity.
The TED iPhone app experience is tailored to mobile phone users who use their devices when on the move. For instance, users at the gym or out walking the dog now have the option to simply listen to TEDTalks audio. With the iPhone app, TED introduces TED Radio, which streams curated audio TEDTalks 24/7 – click the button and start listening immediately. The app plays audio in the background, allowing listeners to multitask, using other apps like Safari or Mail simultaneously.
At the launch of the TED iPhone app, the TED Blog sat down with project leader Thaniya Keereepart and engineer Matt Drance to talk about working together, building new features and what’s coming next from our mobile team.
Thaniya Keereepart: I work for TED, I do product development here. My role on this project has been spearheading the mobile initiative, trying to get TED on mobile devices, and making sure that the experience on the mobile device is as good as the one we have on the web. Pretty much just being the advocate for the user.
Matt Drance: I’m from Bookhouse Software, which is my company, and I led the engineering effort for the iPhone, coming off of the iPad project that we did together.
