Flickr api love

Sat 17th Nov 2007

Just a note to say that we now have a little Flickr api love going on with the £5app site. Photos tagged £5app can now be displayed on the front page. So if you attend a £5app event make sure you upload your photos to Flickr and tag them "£5app".

The rise of the micro-app

Sun 25th Nov 2007

So, call to action: hatch up some idea. Make sure its a little crazy. If pitching it to a VC would get you laughed out of the room, you're on the right track. If you think the commenters on TechCrunch would skewer you, you're getting even warmer. Think Uncov would just laugh and point? You've probably hit the jackpot. Now: go out, build the sucker and figure out how to have fun with it.

Iris has been released

Tue 27th Nov 2007 ($30 apps - living the life of a mac indie)

Just thought I'd point out that Martin has now released Iris his "PhotoBooth on steroids" Cocoa app, which lets you:

Martin talked about developing Iris (and Mac software in general) and it's good to see he's released his creation into the wild. Well done Martin!
