Amazon Shop buttons are programmatically attached to all reviews, regardless of products' final review scores. Our parent company, IDG, receives advertisement revenue for shopping activity generated by the links. Because the buttons are attached programmatically, they should not be interpreted as editorial endorsements.
Pingdroid is advertised as an app that lets you simultaneously post text and photos to multiple social networks, using the Ping.fm service. With Ping.fm, you can post to more than 40 social networks, including Facebook profiles and Pages, FriendFeed, LinkedIn, MySpace, Posterous, Twitter, and Yammer.
Unfortunately, in my tests Pingdroid succeeded only in posting Twitter-style short text updates. Posts with photo attachments failed every time, even though the app showed a 'successful post' confirmation. The posts never reached Ping.fm. I even tried changing the posting method (status update, microblog, or blog), without success. User feedback on the developer's Website suggests that other people have experienced the same problem.
AnyPost, another Ping.fm client app, works much better than Pingdroid for posting updates to multiple social networks. I recommend using it instead.
