Fliptop Makes RSS Feeds Work for You

Fliptop was introduced at the DEMO conference this week in Florida. This application will make you sit up and take notice. You may even gasp loudly, and trip over your fingers in your rush to grab this for yourself. RSS feeds can be a pain to manage – we all know this. Additionally, normal RSS feeds only offer you a direct feed that you have to add to a reader of some sort.

Fliptop has several interesting features that normal RSS feeds do not. The application gives you the ability to filter content by keyword, follow only certain topics or categories that interest you, and allows you to receive email digests of only the things you want to see. The service is available in two different styles. One is designed with website owners in mind. The other, of course, is geared towards the users who visit those sites.

The interface for site owners will give you a button to embed on your site. When clicked, the button will ask the user which topics they want to follow. Below that there is the option to also filter by keywords. The user then chooses how they wish to be alerted to new content: via traditional RSS feed, email, Twitter, Facebook, or text message. If you want to receive email updates, you can also tell the application how often you want to hear from them.

After reading all about Fliptop, I can admit that I will be tripping over my own fingers very soon in my rush. What about you? How fast will you be typing this into your favorite search engine?

Facebook Music Application

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

I’m sure you’ve been to YouTube to listen to your favorite music. What if you just don’t want to go to YouTube? What options do you have then?! If you haven’t used Muziic yet, it’s time you check it out. Muziic lets you share songs, albums, radio stations or playlists with your friends. Oh, and guess what? Muziic now has a Facebook application, as well! Other Facebook music applications pretty well suck. Muziic, however, does not! It’s unobtrusive, and does what it is you want it to do.

It’s so easy to use, and of course it’s legal! It only takes a moment to install the app. It’s a great way for you to find out what’s out there, or listen to your old standby favorites. Type in an artist name, and listen to the selections that come up. If you like them, add them to your playlist. Once you’ve created your playlist, you can share it with others on Facebook!

Another cool feature is being able to add a Muziic tab to your Facebook profile. This will show off your favorite songs, artists and radio stations. It will even show what songs you’ve listened to recently! Additionally, you can not only publish songs you love to your own wall… you can also put them on your friends’ walls! Want to send a song to someone? It’s simple. There are “Share” and “Publish” buttons sprinkled throughout the app, making it easy for you to always find them when you need them.

I really REALLY like and recommend this app. Yes, they are helping out our community a bit, but that has nothing to do with my opinion here, folks. Muziic just plain WORKS. Even better… it’s fun to use!
