If you are using social networks, you are also creating favorites. On Facebook you ‘like’, on Twitter and Google Reader you ‘star’, on Delicious and Pinboard you ‘bookmark’ and so on.
== Find Favorites ==
Instead of spreading your favorites across different networks, use Favs to sync them to your iPhone. Don't waste any more time on searching for your favorite content - Favs has a powerful search feature build right into the application that makes finding what you like a breeze.
== Follow Favorites ==
Many favorites are public, for example on Twitter, Flickr or Vimeo. This allows you to follow the favorites of persons you like and just see their hand-picked articles. For those sources Favs marks new entries as ‘unread’ and you can use Favs as a sophisticated Reader app.

Great as a Reference
If you have certain tweets you find yourself always needing to refer back to, or maybe you remember the person who tweeted an interesting article, Favs is the right tool for you. At times search can be a bit buggy, but overall it gets the job done and looks pretty nice.
It's a nice app, but really needs a way to sync back and forth. For example, un-favoriting a tweet should un-favorite the tweet on one's Twitter account.
