Daily Tip: How to shorten links on the fly with Droplr

Trying to figure out how to shorten URLs quickly and easily? Doplr is Out of all the apps on my iPhone, I find Droplr to be one of my favorites. Not only do they have an iOS version, they have a Mac version as well. It's one of my favorite task management apps since it helps me share and organize files.

I find it incredibly useful for uploading images, long URLS, and videos. It also allows you to create shortened links quickly and easily. Long links are annoying and look bad in statuses and posts. If you find yourself needing shortened links quite often, Droplr will help you do just that.

UK satellite TV provider Sky, finally launches Sky Go for iPhone and iPad

After promising that it would be available on July 6, UK satellite TV provider Sky TV has finally released its new app to allow users to access content while on the go. The app called Sky Go will offer users access to all five sports channels as well as a select number of Movie and news channels.

The app is the successor to Sky’s previous app Sky Mobile TV. The new app seems to offer a larger amount of channels but you are now restricted to only using it with two devices; which have to be registered. None of Sky's entertainment channels such as Sky One are included which is very disappointing.

Due for iPhone and iPad updated [giveaway]

Phocus' reminders app for iPhone and iPad, Due, has been updated with some tweeks and changes.

The beauty of Due lies in its simplicity. There's no account to create, no start or end date to set, no need to prioritize, tag nor categorize. What there is however are what that matters: a note for your reminder, and an alert that is set up in mere seconds.

  • Super fast - Set up a reminder with alert in seconds—up to 3x faster than Calendar app
  • Get to the timings you need in a tap
  • Reusable countdown, egg timers
  • Keep track of outstanding tasks with Smart Badges
  • Never miss any reminders with Auto Snooze Repeatedly notifies you of missed reminders until marked done or rescheduled
  • Reschedule and defer reminders quickly
  • Recurring reminders: daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and more
  • Track past reminders and quickly create new ones based on expired reminders by recycling them within the Logbook
  • Time Zone Shifting - Receive timely reminders no matter where you are in the world
  • 12 great sounding alerts of varying lengths to choose from
  • Universal app, looks and works great on both iPhone and iPad
  • Keep reminders in sync across your iPhone and iPad with OTA Sync via Dropbox
  • Backup, email and restore databases right within Due
  • Undo support
  • Secondary Alert & Alarm mode
  • Reliable reminders that don't require any Internet connection

Here are some of the new changes:

  • Interval on date picker now dynamically changes to accommodate due times that cannot be accurately displayed by user’s preferred interval setting
  • Editing the value of a timer with an auto-generated label now updates the label to match the new countdown value (thanks @mutewinter)
  • Now hides any transient animation on quit to prevent jarring transition on next resume
  • Overdue and Today+Overdue badging now faster
  • When setting up a new repeating reminder, ‘Repeat from date’ follows the ‘Due date’ automatically

I love simplicity done right and Phocus has nailed it with this app. Due takes away the task of keeping track of tasks.

The good folks at Phocus have given us some promo to give away! For a chance to win, just let us know the type of tasks that you need reminding for.

Due is a universal app for iPhone and iPad and is available for $4.99.

Official Google+ for iPhone hits the App Store [Update]

Google+ for iPhone, the official app of Google's new social network has just hit the App Store.

Google+ for mobile makes sharing the right things with the right people a lot simpler. Huddle lets you send super-fast messages to the people you care about most. And no matter where you are, the stream lets you stay in the loop about what your friends are sharing and where they’re checking in.

Features:

  • Circles let you share the right things with just the right people.
  • Stream is where you can get updates from your circles or see what people are saying about things nearby.
  • Huddle is super-fast group messaging for everyone in your circles.

Google+ is only available for users 13 and older.

Overall the app is clean and crisp, fully in keeping with Google's new interest in design. The login experience, however, which throws you back to the terrible Google web page, burned my eyes. Hopefully they can fix that in an update. Soon.

It's very Facebook for iPhone-like, which is good or bad depending on your stance re: consistency vs. innovation, but it works well and moves smoothly for the most part (I wish that hadn't copied some of the more crashes...). The home screen isn't full yet, with Stream (which apparently isn't iOS 5 friendly), Huddle, Photos, Profile (Lion style circled avatar -- who thought that was a good idea?), and Circles.

No iPad support yet, and strangely it doesn't support iPod touch either.

If you've tried it out, let me know what you think. And if you want to get plussy with me, you can circle me up here: https://plus.google.com/117367428086027724173/posts

UPDATE: Google+ has already been updated to version 1.0.1. Is that a record? If you got it before, go re-get it. Again. Here's the explanation: [[Google+
