Churwitz has created DVD Tracker, a new app rapidly moving up the charts of popularity on the Ning Playground. It’s Bookshelf for DVDs. Now you can review DVDs you’ve seen or flag those movies next in line for your viewing pleasure.
Good news for folks who want to write apps that handle uploaded images, videos, sounds, and other exciting non-textual stuff: we’ve enhanced what you can do with uploaded files such as images and video clips.
Bookshelf remains a great way to discover good books others have read, are reading, or want to read. I am such a cliche insofar as adding a book I saw on the Daily Show last night, but it looks really interesting.
Bead Enthusiast? Caravan has created Bead Store Reviews with Maps just for you.
To our three loyal readers, sorry we’ve been away. Tonight I’d like to highlight two Austin, TX-based apps and a few Librarians from the same great state.
Hi all — just now we finished processing the backlog of Beta Developer account requests. Just about everyone who asked for a Beta Developer account up until now should have one.
If you applied for a developer account and never got an email saying you got it, please post a reply to this blog and we will take care of it for you!!
Thanks very much to everyone who applied, we’re delighted to have you all on the Playground.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be offering versions of Rate My Teachers and Restaurant Reviews which will enable you to set them up to review anything in a snap without going into the code – video games, movies, candy bars, the new fall television line-up, or even your siblings.
Anselm Hook just finished Photo Maps, another Ning Example App all set up for you to clone and run.
In an attempt to add some flair to this post, I realize I may be doing an injustice to Los Angeles.
My friend Mike used to live in Los Angeles. He and his brother had a running competition to spot the most obscure celebrity. I believe Mike’s best sighting was Lou Ferrigno before they remade the Incredible Hulk and gave him a cameo as a security guard.
