Thirst: Taking Twitter into a Different View

Twitter has come a long way in the time that it has been around, nearly six years or so. But, really it hasn’t taken off until about the last three, if not sooner. When I first joined about two years ago, I saw it as a way to let my friends and other people know my thoughts, what I was eating, etc. Now, I use it in a whole different way in which I get important tech news, leads on startups, check to see what is happening around the world and still as a way to communicate with people.

Yes, Twitter is growing into more than just a way to voice your thoughts to others, it is evolving into one of the most powerful ways to communicate from a personal as well as a global standpoint. While it has been growing and changing, so have the third-party apps that have been made for it. Take for example, Thirst, an app that takes a new twist on your Twitter stream and presents it to you in a way that we wouldn’t have never thought possible a year or so ago. It lets you consume your feed by combining the old way of reading Twitter as well as the new. (more…)

If you like to blog, then it’s very likely that the website you publish to is powered by WordPress. It’s one of the easiest and most powerful blogging platforms out there, not to mention it’s open source with hundreds of plugins and themes. The people at WordPress know what they’re doing. It’s been over nine years since the initial release and the platform has been going strong, reportedly managing 22% of all websites as of August 2011.

So, say you’ve published a post and are off to take care of some other stuff, leaving your computer at home. Someone texts you that what you just wrote was factually incorrect or had a broken link — what do you do? If you had an iPad, then you could edit it with Blogsy, but if you only have your iPhone with you the best option is WordPress’ official iOS app. I’ve used it in instances like this before and it works well — but exactly how well?

Lists, almost everybody uses them — heck, I’m addicted to them. Despite the widening prevalence of iOS devices in the daily workflow, good old notebooks have always been my personal preference for creating lists of any kind. The reason? One-thirds nostalgia, two-thirds indecisiveness. You see, there are an abundance of list making and GTD apps out there, but none have peaked my interest enough to replace the notebook, until now.

We’re told that first impression always count, but if that were true I would never have played the beautiful OLO. When it was first featured as the App Store’s “Game of the Week,” I met the app with initial skepticism; the premise seemed too simplistic to be a long-lasting, entertaining game. But after being given the chance to review the app, my mind was swiftly changed. Let me tell you why.  (more…)

I’ve used plenty to-do list applications in my day, and shelled out quite a bit of money for them, to say the least. Some boasted much more features than others, while some were better designed. And, well, some were better than others. I have found that I prefer the simple to-do app, so I resorted to using Clear.

Then a nifty little app called Cheddar came out. It was similar to Clear because of its simplicity of design and function, but seemed to be a bit more robust when it came down to features. But does Cheddar make the cut and replace Clear as my go-to to-do list application? Find out after the jump. (more…)
