Flickr adds to sharing options, now easier to share photos across the Web

It sure is nice to see some new developer action over at Flickr. The relatively slow-moving photo-sharing service has just announced a new sharing update, which consists of several new and easy ways to embed or link to your photos: Share from Photo page: There's a new sharing option on each and every photo page. When logged off, the button shows only Facebook and Twitter options. But once...

Read The Daily iPad-exclusive digital newspaper online for free

Depending which posts you read about The Daily -- News Corp's new iPad-exclusive digital "newspaper" -- it's either the most amazing thing to happen to print media in a long time, or just another ho-hum e-publication. Either way, there's good content to read -- and you can now do that for free, whether you own an iPad or not. Waxy.org's Andy Baio built The Daily Indexed, a Tumblr blog that pul...

Tumblr apps for iPhone and Android get revamped Dashboard

Tumblr has told Mashable that its mobile applications for iPhone and Android have received an update that overhauls their Dashboard functionality. The updated apps are set to go live today in the iTunes App Store and the Android Market. The mobile apps now have the complete functionality of the Web-based Tumblr Dashboard built in. The new Dashboard seamlessly presents users with photos, galleri...

Dear Meat publishes letters from people to objects

Dear Meat is one of the more creative uses for Tumblr that I've seen recently. It's run by a guy named Matthew Hocker, and it features letters that people have written to things. Matthew curates the site, so it's not a bunch of random comments. I mean, it's quite random, but the content is interesting and evokes emotion. As I write this, the front page features "Dear Nipples," "Dear Tripod," "Dea...

Beta Review: Forrst is an awesome community for designers and developers

Let me start this off with a disclaimer: If you feel any sort of aversion towards hipsters, you should probably move on; I don't think you can enjoy Forrst. However, if Tumblr feels like a second home, and you spend your days endlessly gazing at ffffound and sharing snarky comments over at the Shirt.woot forums, you are probably going to love Forrst. The site has a simple, clear-cut mandate: it's...

TwitPic, butthurt and pathetic, brings in the lawyers to fight Posterous

Posterous, as I'm sure you're all aware, is the supremo light-weight blogging platform. Not only is it fantastically easy to use, but it's also the king of flexibility and interoperability -- you can post to your blog via email, bookmarklet, mobile phone and even Twitter! It also has the ability to import from other platforms: WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr and switch from many others -- but yesterday...

Looking for an OS X Tumblr app? myTumblr is a pretty snazzy option

Aside from Tumblr's oft-broken web interface, there are some reasons that you may be looking for a desktop app to handle your tumbling. If that's the case for you, myTumblr is at least worth checking out -- it's free to try, and could be well worth the $14.99 price tag if you're a serious Tumblr user. myTumblr more or less acts as a direct replacement for the Tumblr Dashboard. It does have some n...

Tumblr lets you ask questions of your favourite Tumblogs

If you're a Tumblr user, you may have noticed the Tumblr staff teasing a new feature on their own Tumblogs over Christmas -- Ask a Question. It allows you to easily pose a question to the Tumblr user (or users) behind your favourite Tumblog. The blog owner can then easily post the question and their response from within the Tumblr dashboard. Today sees the launch of the Ask feature to all Tumb...

Tumblr starts pushing real-time updates via PubSubHubbub

Tumblr, the fast-growing lightweight blogging platform, is constantly adding new features. Tumblr's latest move is to start pushing users' blog updates in real time, using PubSubHubbub (try saying that 10 times fast). Tumblr's real-time will be powered by Superfeedr, which is the same service used by Tumblr competitor Posterous. This is more of a step for the future than a right-now sort of thi...

Tutorial9 offering free icon sets, Wordpress and Tumblr themes

Freebie downloads are always welcome. By a happy coincidence, Tutorial9 is offering a 25Mb download until November 26th, 2009 which contains four Wordpress themes, three Tumblr themes, and a whole slew of icons. Better still, the whole package can be used for commercial purposes. There's plenty of good quality stuff inside, from the grungy sticker icons above to the clean, simple designs WP them...

Take a sneak peek at the new Tumblr iPhone app

Tumblr is a quick and flexible blogging platform, which makes it well-suited to the iPhone. The Tumblr iPhone app has been in need of an update for some time now, though, so avid tumbloggers will be happy to hear that version 1.1 of the app has been submitted to the App Store and should be available soon. One of the developers of Tumblr for iPhone has posted a sneak preview of the new features in...

Tell DLS: What are your Top 10 Web Apps?

We're continuing our Tell DLS column by leaving the desktop and heading to the web. There's tonnes and tonnes of webapps out there -- however here's just 10 that I use day-in, day-out. If you're got any other favourites, be sure to leave them in the comments!...

Tumblr rolls out even more theming options

Last week the folks at Tumblr hinted that some changes were coming for the platform, and the first signs of that are emerging with a huge update to how users can customise the look and feel of their Tumblogs. For the less-technical minded there's now support for customised fonts, and images in themes that can be edited directly within Tumblr's Customise window and if you're a code-minded user, th...

Tumblr revamps New and Popular post pages

I've made no secret of my love for super-simply blogging platform Tumblr in the past here at Download Squad, so you can imagine the dilemma I faced upon hearing that Tumblr launched a few (ahem) realtime features today to allow users to discover all-new content on the service. As always, the Tumblr Wire page is slickly designed and live-updating as more content comes in - though if you're looking...

Build your own Tumblog with Chyrp

As a heavy (and admittedly very proud) Tumblr user, I frequently get asked "Can I self-install Tumblr on my own webspace?" and have answer "No". That's not a big deal to most people - it's possible to use custom domains with Tumblr, customise the look and feel of your site and more directly from within Tumblr - but for the slightly more technical, it can be a deal-breaker. If you're wanting to ...
