twibble Desktop Application

Twibble Logo
I’m installing twibble on my mobile device and so far, it works great. I use this as a primary application to upload photos from my Twitter account.
Today, I tried twibble for desktop application. Anyway, I’m having TweetDeck and TwitterFox (for Mozilla Firefox and Flock). Well, I use TwitterFox most of the time. I don’t know, I just like TweetDeck being installed, as an application to learn about interface design. :)
If you have TweetDeck installed, you can install twibble for desktop application since both are using Adobe AIR technology. Compared to TweetDeck, I think TweetDeck is much better. BUT, I like these twibble (for desktop) features:

  • Multiple Twitter accounts — if you manage multiple account. I do.
  • Location awareness — it understands GPS position sent from twitter mobile.
  • Easy to post pictures/photos.
  • twitter search
  • identi.ca support

When I firstly installed, I was a little bit lost about the menu and interface. For example, on the configuration screen, I could not see the “Go” or “Save” links/button. Well, it’s there, using a small green arrow icon.

Tumbleweed: Tumblr Desktop Client

After I decided to start a tumblelog (again), the first thing I did was finding a desktop client. For now, Tumblr does not support XML-RPC protocol, but they do have API.
I’m not familiar with API, so I searched for solution. Luckily, I found Tumbleweed. Login using Tumblr account, and you can start writing. If you have web camera, you can also capture using it, and post it as photo. What I like from Tumblweed:

  • The interface is clean, easy to understand.
  • Support multiple tumble format — of course!
  • It also support tags and timestamp modification
  • Support multiple tumblelogs from Tumblr, using Tumblr domain or custom domain.

But, there are some limitations (it’s more about my personal preferences):

  • When writing a “Quote”, there is no textarea to write the description. It’s only an “input” type.
  • Entry history. If you have many contents, you only see your last 20 entries.
  • Inline editing. All posted contents can’t be edited from the interface.

Those features seems not available for now — based on my observation. But, I’m fine with that since this is the best Tumblr desktop client I found so far. If you have any recommendation, please share.
Anyway, if you want to install Tumblweed, you need to have Adobe AIR installed first.

Windows Live ID for Everyone

Some of you probably have heard that you can have Windows Live ID. Yes, it’s open for public now. It means that everyone can register. The registration process is very simple, you only need to fill in some registration form fields.
After the registration process was completed, you will be brought to a page, telling that you have your Windows Live ID. It says:

Congratulations on getting your Windows Live ID!!
Now that you’ve got your Windows Live ID, get ready to experience the new set of services that brings your online world together.

Then what? I mean, I have no other useful links, or redirected to other more useful page. I am talking about “I have registered, but were to go next?”. It’s unusual… or, it’s designed this way?
