If you’re launching an App on the iTunes Store, it may be a good idea not to do it on a Tuesday. Although, Sunday may be a good day if maximising your downloads is what you’re after.
When I upgraded to Apple OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion), I was pretty annoyed to find out that You Tube sharing integration had disappeared. Thankfully I found this article that points out that quicktime player still has YouTube sharing in its sharing menu!
The OS X social sharing features new to Mountain Lion let you quickly publish images and videos to a variety of places, and using Share Sheets within QuickTime Player you can even publish videos directly to YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook, right from the app.
A useful browser extension to help you get better screenshots!
Capture, Annotate and Share
Capture the whole page or any portion, annotate it with rectangles, circles, arrows, lines and text, one-click upload to share.
Making Google Analytics even speedier
It’s great to see Google keeping up it’s speed philosophy with their analytics platform. I couldn’t live without Analytics and it must be quick!
It’s not a secret. We do monetize social discovery, and it’s great.
There’s little getting away from Pinterest these days. I noticed that they are using the same online monetization provide as I have been using on some of my sites.
Although I’m not going to retire on the income I get from my Skimlinks implementations. It is worth noting that it is very quick and easy to get a skimlinks account up and running on your blog or website, and as this article points out it is a very unobtrusive way of injecting advertising revenue in your website.
Long live Skimlinks! We look forward to seeing how this service develops in the future.
Today, we’re very pleased to be launching a significant redesign for the Google Search app for iPad. As you can see in our video, whether you’re doing research and comparing results, or exploring beautiful imagery, we have added new features to make the app more interactive, more visual and to help you find what you want more easily.
More interactiveYou’ll notice that searching is faster and more interactive from your first keystroke. As soon as you begin to type, Google Instant starts to display results, so you don’t even need to press the search button.
Once you pick a web page to visit, you’ll see the page load on a new, slide-in pane that will layer over the search results. You can slide the pane to the right to get back to your search results, and even keep scrolling through the results as your web page is loading. This allows you to go back and forth from results to web pages quickly to get the information you are looking for.
Interesting that Google has chosen to release this tool on iOS prior to its own
It certainly looks like an innovative a fluid way to search the web.
I can’t wait to download and play!
Twitter is currently beta testing this service, but this article indicated that the service will be rolled out to all very shortly. This could be a very useful addition, I wonder how much benefit it will offer over current analytic services such as Crowdboost for instance. I await with anticipation.
