When my6sense first debuted, the application was focused on RSS, and many folks still believe that's what the app is all about. While RSS is great, the new additions to the app, including support for Twitter, Facebook and Google Buzz, put content from those networks on the same foundation as RSS for news consumption and discovery.
As those social apps gain utility in the app, user expectations rise. It's a great thing, making us reconsider where consumption ends and creation begins.
Thus, in the last month, we have added:
- Likes and Comments for Facebook and Google Buzz
- Retweets, Replies and Direct Messages on Twitter
- Full Google Buzz consumption and sharing
- Reduced memory usage
- Added the ability to move data to the SD card
- The ability to save the last known settings (such as sort by time) when you open the app
- The option to display items that have been created in the last 12 hours
- The addition of Instapaper support to save your items to the cloud.
The app today is on Android and iPhone, where it all began, and my6sense also has an Attention API for customers, who can bring personalized prioritization to their streams. More screens are planned of course.
