Twitter Integration: Now You can Picnik Your Twitter

with one comment

picnikPicnik is an online photo editor that has many advanced features that are similar to Adobe Photoshop but has a simpler and more intuitive interface than Photoshop. Just a day ago, Picnik has updated its service to include Twitter as one of its Save and Share feature, among the other sharing services such as Flickr and Facebook. Basically, after you are done with editing your image, you can choose to save and share on your twitter account and choose to save it as a tweet, a profile picture or a Twitter background. This new feature has come about due to a partnership between Twitgoo, a media-sharing service created by Photobucket to post pictures on Twitter.

From the look of it, this Twitter integration has made Picnik to be a really great service for both editing pics as well as sharing pics- all from one place which is really convenient and easy. And if you are really interested in their latest updates and development, be sure to follow their Twitter account for the latest Picnik news. Comment and let us know what you think of this!!

Tweetie For Mac: The Latest Twitter Desktop Client

with 2 comments

tweetieTweetie is considered to be among the most popular and best Twitter client on the iPod Touch/iPhone and it  has recently released Tweetie on the Mac desktop. From the look of it, Tweetie has a neat and slick interface combined with a whole lot of features such as multi-column organization, search feature as well as multiple accounts support. Though, you might want to consider carefully before deciding to fork out $14.95 (only until 14 May, after which the price is raised to $19.95) for Tweetie or else you can still stick with the free ad-supported version for the time being.

Anyway, Tweetie might just prove to be a strong contender to other Twitter AIR clients such as Tweetdeck as well as native Mac Twitter apps like Twitterrific in the ever-increasing list of Twitter clients. Be sure to check out what Mashable and TechCrunch has to say about this for a more complete review about Tweetie. As always, we will be keeping track on the latest development of Twitter clients and apps.

    New Gmail Feature: Never Miss Out On Any Email Contact Again

    with 2 comments

    Google has introduced a small but significant feature to its nifty email service, Gmail called “Suggest more recipients” which might proved useful to some Gmail users. Basically, Gmail now suggest to you some email contacts that you might want to include in your recipient list based on which contact you are sending your email to. [You might want to check out our other Gmail posts.]

    gmail suggest

    Here is what the Gmail blog has to say about this:

    Once you’ve enabled it from the Labs tab under Settings, you’ll see suggested recipients while composing messages. Gmail will suggest people you might want to include based on the groups of people you email most often. So if you always email your mom, dad, and sister together, and you start composing a message to your mom and dad, Gmail will suggest adding your sister. Enter at least two recipients and any suggestions will show up like this:

    This might seems a nifty feature and a quick shortcut for those who often send group-based emails and do not want to miss out on anybody especially if it is an important email. If you found this feature extremely useful, comment and let us know. We will be keeping tabs on more Gmail news so be sure to update here.
