We are in love with the little blue bird known as Twitterrific that is a popular Twitter client used on the Mac and the iPod Touch/iPhone. Now it seems like we can be expecting Twitterrific 2.0 to be coming soon on the iPod Touch/iPhone. Most likely, it will be a free app with advertising like its previous versions with new and better feature matching other Twitter clients on the iPod Touch/iPhone. And here is a quick sneak peek of Twitterrific 2.0 from the Twitterrific’s site.
It seems like we can be expecting a whole new interface, along with other cool functions like Twitter search and organized tweets. Currently, Twitterrific 2.0 is undergoing approval from the App Store. We would be keeping you updated on this once it gets approved. For more info on this, check out Mashable’s reviews which includes an exclusive sneak peek video as well.
We are always on the constant lookout for the latest and coolest Twitter apps and services. And that pretty much include Twitter photo-sharing services as well. Just recently a new Twitter photo-sharing service called TweetPhoto was launched and after trying it out, we think it might just be the next big photo-sharing since Twitpic. Here is a quick rundown and review of what TweetPhoto is all about.
TweetPhoto was initially in private beta a few months ago but has since gone live on Thursday April 30th and it seems like it was already quite popular in its initial stages. And to give it a test run, just log in with your Twitter username and password and you will be greeted with a simple and neat interface. Then, you can upload a photo, tag it, and tweet it along with a message. From there, you can explore even more awesome functions like viewing other Twitter user’s photo, favorite them and commenting them.
Other additional stuffs included are widgets integration as well as an API which might proved useful to some. Other than that, TweetPhoto proves to be very good and we are already loving it. Be sure to try it out!! You might just love it!! Here is a quick list of features in TweetPhoto:
- Upload photos by email, mobile or web
- See who viewed any photo
- Favorite or retweet any photo
- Photos are automatically geo-tagged
- Filter photos by Twitter or Facebook friends
- Automatically publish photos to Facebook
- Search photos and see trending tags
Do you ever feel the urge to google anywhere and at anytime? Now here is one more way you can google: the fast and easy way from inside your Gmail account. Google has apparently launched a very obvious but great function which lets you google from within your Gmail account without ever leaving it. The interface is neat and easy to use and it offers additional features as well. Here is what the Gmail blog has to say:
You can click on a search result and it’ll open up in another window (or another tab) so you can make sure it’s what you’re looking for. Once you’re sure it’s a result you need, moving your mouse over the result back in Gmail reveals a pull-down menu that lets you do stuff with the search result.
What’s in the menu depends on what you’re doing in Gmail:
- If you’re reading a message, you can start a reply to the message with the search result as the first thing in your reply.
- If you’re writing a message, you can paste the result, or just the URL into your message.
- If you’re chatting with someone, you can send the result via chat.
- You can also always compose a new message to send the search result.
If you have keyboard shortcuts turned on, typing g and then / will take you to the search box when you’re not composing, and Ctrl + g will do it when you’re composing (that’s ⌘ + gfor Mac users).
Does that sound neat and useful to you? We sure think so, so if you want to try out this cool addition, be sure to go to Google Labs in your Gmail account and enable it for the google-anytime-anywhere experience!!
