Twitter App Directories


I recently released a small Twitter App called Twitter Critter and in order to generate some traffic for my new site I decided to submit it to various Twitter App Directories.  It’s n easy way to generate some outside links to my site and get the word out, all the working directories I could sniff out are listed below:

Know any other directories?  Please let me know in the comments :)

Barcode Kanojo


Barcode Kanojo is an interesting iPhone game I’ve been wanting to try out for a while.  Only recently was it released to the iPod touch so now I’m able to give it a whirl!

How it works is that you scan in barcodes from items you’ve bought and if no one has ever scanned that barcode before you can generate a Kanojo (Girlfriend), but if someone has already scanned in that barcode you can follow their generated Kanojo and try to steal her away!  Also, when you scan in the barcode you can take a photo of the item itself.  Then you can see your item as well as other peoples photos of the same thing.

In order to steal other’s Kanojos you can visit them and flirt with them to make their love for their boyfriend drop and when it’s all gone their yours :)  Every 4 hours your energy is recharged and you can use it to create new Kanojo’s, spend time with you Kanojos(so they won’t get stolen!), and spend time with other’s Kanojos to try and steal them away.  I seems you’ll eventually level up, and there’s a “collections” portion of the game, but I haven’t gotten that far yet.

I can see myself getting bored of this pretty quickly…but for now it’s a fun distraction, and I really like how they’ve working in the multi-player portions of the game.

Twitter Critter

Tags: , , , ,

I recently just finished a project called “Twitter Critter” It’s a simple program that works with Twitter to generate an avatar.  All you have to do is enter in your own username, or anyone’s username, and it will create an avatar based on your Tweets.

It searches through your latest 200 tweets and uses those words to determine what color, critter, and what accessories your Twitter Critter will have.  It also generates a cute bio for that Critter based on those choices.  There are thousands of possible combinations, and if you come back after doing some Tweeting your result will change!  You can also Tweet out a permalink to the specific Twitter Critter your generated, and with one click you can set it as you avatar on Twitter.

Tags: , , , , is a new “unlimited” file sharing service.  It’s super simple, no size limits, no sign-up required.  If it sounds too good to be true, then we’re on the same page.  This is not the first “unlimited” file sharing service to come around, but hopefully this one will last longer than it’s predecessors.  The ability to send large files without hassle or cost would be a huge convenience.
