Vigill allows enterprise systems and humans to converse and self-serve in mobile applications. Vigill is a cloud platform that enables companies to connect, interact and self-service their customers through their mobile applications. At its core Vigill’s proposition involves presenting concise, time sensitive information, allowing the user to respond and/or perform a task quickly, efficiently and conveniently – leveraging the power of smartphones (alerting, authenticating, interacting, locating, and interacting).
To crack the market, Vigill will make it easy for developers to white-label integrate ‘conversation engines’ into their mobile apps – similar to the likes of Twilio or UrbanAirship.
As we announced over on the HushVine Blog, we have created an Android Twitter tracking app for DWS7. But for those of you who want the big screen experience, we’re thrilled to make it available here too. It auto-updates every minute, is tracking lots more than a hashtag and you can tweet from it too.
We all know what unmitigated disasters Digg V3 and later were. In a world of Twitter and Facebook they kept thinking it was still 2007. When V3 launched I said that it should have been built around the popular stories on Twitter since that’s what people are really interested in, rather than the closed coven of Digg power-users. So I was thrilled to see the recent launch of NewsWhip which does exactly that.
The site is an aggregation of popular news based on sharing and RTs across Twitter and Facebook. So there is no gaming, no moderation, just a smart algorithm bubbling up the hot news right now. They give a score to a news story by measuring how many Tweets, Likes, Shares, and other interactions it gets.You can filter by the location you are interested in and various categories and sub-categories.
At the moment the front page is showing some stories on the possible return of Arrested Development. That makes me very happy indeed.
For a great snapshot of interesting news across the realtime web during the day, I think the guys have nailed it.
I just heard about the PyCon Ireland conference that is on next weekend in the Radisson Blu, Golden Lane, Dublin. Looks like a great line-up of speakers on all things Python. I’m particularly interested in the “Introduction to MongoDB and PyMongo” by Brendan McAdams of 10gen.
In case you hadn’t heard, 10gen is also opening an office in Dublin next month. Time to make Dublin the NoSQL capital of Europe?
