QUOTE.fm for iPad on the App Store
Great news, everybody! Introducing: The Send to QUOTE.fm button.
Here is what it is able to do:
- Save to QUOTE.fm Read – Let your readers easily save your articles for later reading to QUOTE.fm Read
- Read now – Let your readers read the article in a reading environment they can customize themselves
- Send to Kindle – Let your readers send the article to their favorite e-ink reading device. (Soon available for everybody, at the moment still in beta.)
- Recommend on QUOTE.fm – This may be the best thing. Your readers can select a part they liked of the article and click the QUOTE.fm button to recommend the article on QUOTE.fm
The number to the right of the button shows how often the article has been recommended on QUOTE.fm. Click the number to go directly to the source page on QUOTE.fm.
Nice, isn’t it? And there is more.
We’re happy to announce that The Industry (Source page of The Industry) already makes use of the new QUOTE.fm button. The Industry is a publication dedicated to highlighting design focused startups and people. If that doesn’t sound like a perfect fit, we don’t know what else would.
Make sure to head over there to read and recommend their articles. It’s great content and we promise that you’ll learn something new.
We’re on your site.
Go grab the embed code in the QUOTE.fm Labs, add it to your page and see what your readers find worth recommending.
we know, we know. It’s about time. So let’s not waste more of it and cut right to the chase: Our API with write access is out now. Please read this getting started guide to get comfortable with our authentication method.
What took us so long? We decided that the iPad app is our main priority, so Philipp worked on the backend stuff that was necessary for the app. The app launched and with it QUOTE.fm Read, which got some tweaks in the last couple of weeks. We’ve improved the text parser, added page stitching and made a lot of small fixes.
With all that done, we’re finally ready to complete the API. From now on our API has read and write access.
Reeder for iPhone and Mac got a special treatment and is therefore the first app that allows posting to QUOTE.fm.
We’re really excited about this and are looking forward to all your creative ideas. We think there are great things that can be build upon QUOTE.fm and the API is there for you.
Feel free to let us know what you’re building and we are always happy to get feedback. The whole thing is on GitHub and we’re going to build a page where all apps and pages that integrate with QUOTE.fm will be featured.
Go visit the QUOTE.fm Labs! Have fun and happy coding.
Reeder for Mac now supports recommending and saving for later reading on QUOTE.fm. It’s the best RSS reader out there, so there is no excuse not to use it. Go download Reeder for Mac. (By the way: Reeder for iPhone also supports QUOTE.fm.)
Reeder is the first app available that’s allowed to use our API with write access. That will change very soon. Hint hint.
Today we’re happy to announce that we’ve released two new features. Well one of them is a feature, the other is a cosmetic improvement.
The old e-mails looked kind of ugly. In fact they might be the thing that lasted for the longest time before getting a rebrush. Now they look nice and we hope you’ll welcome them in your inbox.
Some publications decided to boost their pageviews by splitting the articles into several pages. Until now we saved only the first page after you added the article for later reading. From now on we’ll look for additional pages and stich them together, so you’ll save the whole article to your QUOTE.fm Read.
This should work on most major sites. In case you discover an article where this isn’t working, please let us know.
