This is also usable in PhoneGap applications since PhoneGap uses the underlying HTML geolocation APIs already. I have tested this on desktop Chrome, Safari, Firefox and on iOS and Android devices. I have […]

LottaTweets.com – web app for speed reading tweets

As a developer evangelist for Adobe, I use Twitter often to keep up with the latest trends, announcements, and more.  I’ve often been frustrated that the Twitter website and twitter apps all use one column that takes advantage of only about 1/9th of my large monitor.  I’ve been looking for a good project to beef […]
