MySpace reinvents its app with a GIF maker and music streaming service

Five months after launch of the latest version of its site, MySpace unveils its new application for iPhone. The first notable change is the appearance of an animated GIF creator tool: a feature reminiscent of the Vine app from Twitter, and his little 6-second videos. Another key innovation: “Social Radio”, a free and personalized music streaming service, which gives access to 53 million songs. This service competes directly with iTunes Radio, the new music streaming platform announced by Apple last Monday at WWDC.

iEconomy: key digital figures at your fingertips

The application iEconomy was developed by the Care agency for the OECD. Its aim is to provide statistical data concerning the Internet economy. Very technical, this application is intended in particular for journalists, economists, researchers and students. iEconomy is available in the 34 OECD member countries. Its statistical data make it possible to compare the performances and trends of the Internet sector over the last 10 years. For now, the app is available on the App Store and Google Play. It will soon appear on iPad.


Tranquilien: SNCF puts open data at the service of users

Tranquilien is an application developed by SNCF, intended for users of the Transilien network. The principle: to inform passengers in real time about the filling rate of the trains, so that they can choose the most comfortable train, or even the wagon. This system is made possible by the opening of the public data of the SNCF. In a logic of crowdsourcing, the 3 million daily users of the Transilien are invited to join the Tranquilien community to transmit information on their train. The application should be available on iPhone on June 24.
