    Here is a review for all you Myspace Junkies out there that can't get enough of Tom and his updates.

    Myspace Mobile is an app free for download from the App Store and is compatible on both iPhone and iPod Touch.

    As you can see the App starts off with a reduced and basic version on the "Home Screen" of Myspace providing access to Your Profile, Friends Status and Mood, Friend Updates, Bulletins, Blogs, and Setting(Not Shown) on the bottom bar; while on the top is is your display name followed by a sign out button.

    As nice as it is, it does not have any notifications as the normal and mobile Myspace websites do besides Friend Requests, and New messages. (i.e; New Comments, New Photo Comments, New Bulletin Comments.)

    Above is the "Compose" Screen where you would place a friends name in the To space, then subject, then the message(also, this is the similar layout for replying to Comments, Adding Photo Comments, and Posting Bulletins.)

    This is also a very clean layout to typing a message to one of your friends, but it has major flaws. It does not line break by simply hitting return, it may look like it but when checked on the computer or another mobile device there won't be any spaces.
    Also when posting bulletins there is a common flaw that the app will add unnecessary letters and number in the bulletins title.

    Viewing photos(above) is one of the Apps strongest points providing a clear and beautiful picture as if you were looking at it in the photos.app.(Can also view photos in landscape)
    Providing access to the picture comments(Quote) and the title of the picture(computer screen with lines underneath), as well as the option to change the title of the photo,if your the photo's owner(Tools). All on the bottom of the screen with a button on the top left part of the screen to return to the photo album you were viewing.
    Also from this app you are able to upload pictures to Myspace to your mobile Pictures album from your Photo Library(and Camera Roll if you have a iPhone).

    Overall/Summery:
    Myspace Mobile for iPhone is a very nice and compact version of myspace and perfect for anyone that wishes to check there basic information on myspace.
    But for anyone else the App need a major update to include, the bulletin fix, the ability to post bulletin comments, better 3.0 compatibility, More notifications, and the ability to edit your profile.
    Until Myspace decides to update this app the normal mobile version of myspace(m.myspace.com) includes most of these fixes but has it's own flaws.

    iOwnLP gives this app a 3 out of 5.

    How many people use MySpace now? Because I remember it has a network of like 100 million people back when I used it like 3 years ago.

    LOL. They're still boasting 100 mill. They probably got 102 by now though.

    I stopped using Myspace after about half of my friend invites were coming from pedos or ugly pornstars.

    They should have used Facebook, then I could have gave them a "Likes"
