Pin a Post from Banjo and other LBS News
Pin a Post, a free application that goes live in Apple and Google app stores today [8/23], lets users save social media posts emanating from a specific spot that they want to refer back to later.
“It’s Pinterest for location,” said Damien Patton, founder and chief executive of Redwood City, California-based Banjo. Like the popular site for saving collections of photos from around the Web, Pin a Post serves as a bookmarking service for consumers of social media.
The new app was built in three days. It's hard to say if that's a selling point or not!
Craigslist has been adament about any apps that try to map its offerings. I recall John Dvorak going on about how is son was shut down by the company. But now...
Craigslist is apparently working on a map tool of its own. Oh, and while it’s doing its best to discourage web openness, it’s also using an open crowd-sourced platform to build out Craigslist maps.
Yep, the app is built on OpenStreetMap.
The Next Web has reached out to Google for comment. While there has been no official announcement or communication indicating that the [weather] API has been closed, it is noteworthy that iGoogle — the product that the API serviced — is now using Wundergrond.com instead, as you can see in these two examples: 94102 and Mountain View. This would suggest the search giant has knowingly made the switch.
Google's @ManoMarks asks in a tweet if they are tarlking aboutan "undocumented API people were using without tos?"
