Still, that doesn’t stop me wanting know what’s going on. And given that I do the majority of reading on my phone these days, a mobile app makes perfect sense. So that’s what we have here. Twoogle is a small mobile web app to keep up with the latest news from down there in Texas.
This is a mobile-optimized website so will run on any handheld device with a modern browser (iPhone, Android, Blackberry). If you have a 2-D barcode scanner, point it at this QR code:
It’s pretty simple: see either the latest tweets or news/blog articles. Why concentrate on only Twitter and Google? These services combined offer wonderful event coverage: dipping into Twitter occasionally gives you a sense of the general vibe and Google is great for the macro/high level coverage.
Twoogle is built on top of the HTML5 JQueryMobile framework so like any other webpage just go ahead and bookmark and, if so inclined, add a shortcut to your homepage. After the event, just delete the shortcut – no need to worry about installing any risky apps or taking up precious storage space on your phone.
Get back to me with any feedback.
