Keek: Android app for 36-second video status updates

by: Dan EvansJuly 26, 2012

You might be wondering, what in the world is a “keek”? Is it some sort of strange bird call? Think of tweets and their 140-character limit. Now imagine that short, concise message in a video. That’s what a keek is.

Show the world you’re at a concert, for example, and give them an idea of the noise around you. You can also share what being in a brain-numbing hours-long [...]

Instamap: Viewing geotagged Instagram photos on Google Maps

by: Carl ParkerJuly 4, 2012

Nothing is more refreshing than having the chance to take a peek at different local places or even distant parts of the world without actually having to deal with the hassles of traveling.

Say for example, you want to see the recently opened Sky Tree Tower in Japan, but you don’t have the luxury of time to go out of the country and leave your job. Perhaps you’d settle on just letting it pass, while hoping that someday, the chance would come knocking on your door. But, more often than not, you feel inclined to find ways to see the view without compromising your entire business.

You may not be able to fly out to the destination of your dreams just yet [...]
