Timely.is Tweet Automation

Timely is a really simple tweet automation service by the creators of Flowtown. If you like an as-is service that posts Tweets at times it deems appropriate either 1, 3, 5 or 9 times a day, then this is the web app for you.

“What we do is analyze your past 199 tweets and figure out the best time slots. We then use this info to auto-schedule your tweets and learn as your followers grow.”

However, it serverly lacks advanced control. It automatically uses the short URL service awe.sm, which although seems like a… Continue reading

Rapportive… two birds, one stone

Essentially what it does is replace the ads on the right hand side of an email with a social media lookup.

As bad as it sounds because I do love Gmail, I don’t recall ever clicking an ad in Gmail. It seems to be… Continue reading

Splendid Bacon, splendid indeed

It has all the usual functions of a product of this type, activity stream, calendar, tasks, contacts and messaging. But what sets it apart is the ability to add additional apps and even create your… Continue reading

Pushnote, genius but forgettable?

Now, first things first, Pushnote is genius! This is one of those apps that you can’t believe hasn’t already been created. I first picked up on it when Stephen Fry pushed (pardon the pun) it on his blog, he’s a British comedian and member of the Twitterati (over 2 million followers) who has a vested interest in the startup (as an investor).

When you sign up for Pushnote, you are asked to install a browser plugin, I believe they have currently created plugins for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer (lacking support for Apple’s Safari)… Continue reading
