We’ve got a few social networking options leading the way to get you through the midweek this Wednesday. Leading the Fresh Apps charge is TinyVox Infinite Tape Deck, an app that lets you record sound and voice “tapes” and post them to Twitter or Facebook and share them with whomever. After that is Liike for Facebook, a universal app that distills Facebook into a solid, clean interface while maintaining all the social network’s features. On the games front, Match Panic will test your left-or-right button tapping reflexes, while Joining Hands is a puzzler that tests how fast you can link up all the characters on a grid who want to hold hands. Check them all out below.

TinyVox Infinite Tape Deck (iPhone, iPad) Free

Combining the ability to record voice and share it across the Internet is social networking app TinyVox. It basically gives you the capability of recording voice mail messages and using them as you see fit – like emailing them to yourself or friends or posting them on Twitter and Facebook. It’s also great for note-taking, because you can post your TinyVox files to the cloud or email them around, guaranteeing you won’t lose or delete them.

When you record something and save it to your TinyVox account, you can send the URL for the tape to anywhere. Users who click the URL are taken to TinyVox’s website, where the tape for which they’re searching will start playing almost instantly. It’s a pretty fast and convenient little service, with lots of connectivity to other apps (besides Facebook and Twitter, there’s also Evernote).

Liike for Facebook (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Facebook provides a free app for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but for just a buck you can give the well-reviewed Liike for Facebook a go. It includes all the features of Facebook on the web, but with a clean and quick interface and universal support.

Liike packs all the features of Facebook, including a full chat feature that lets users to communicate as if they were sending SMS messages. You can upload photos through the app, join groups and like pages, as well. Liike for Facebook also supports 15 different international languages, so it’s useful to just about everyone.

Match Panic (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Fast-twitch reflexes are at a premium in Match Panic, a game that’s about reading the situation and reacting quickly. It’s a simple premise, with symbols moving down a line toward the screen and two buttons positioned on either side of it. As the symbols move forward, you’re tasked with tapping the corresponding button on either side of the screen, matching pandas with the panda side, stars with the star side, and so on.

It sounds easy, but Match Panic is all about speed and rewards you for moving fast and making as few mistakes as possible. And as time goes on, you’ll unlock additional symbols that will pop-up in the middle of the game, mixing with the symbols on either of your two buttons and giving you more to remember. Match Panic also includes Game Center support for achievements and leaderboards.

Joining Hands (iPhone, iPad) $2.99

Puzzler Joining Hands is all about helping the games Peablins make friends. Each level presents you with a hexagonal grid and a few round, sad-faced characters inhabiting it. These Peablins want to hold hands with one another, so your job is to move them around so that each of their hands is occupied. Connecting each hand without leaving any floating completes the puzzle and the level.

Also located on each level are stars that you can snag to add to your high score for each stage. You’re also timed on how quickly you can solve the game’s puzzles, which is saved to Joining Hands’ Game Center leaderboards. The game also has more levels coming in a future free update.
