|Description||Digital experience agency|
Teehan+Lax is a boutique digital experience agency, creating iPhone apps and websites. They also created “the iPhone PSD”, the first popular Photoshop design tool for creating iPhone interfaces.
Aside from creating great digital experiences for clients like Virgin Mobile, Bell, AIR MILES & Corcoran they create self-funded software too. Some of their products include Image Spark (imgspark.com): An image bookmarking service that lets uses save images from anywhere on the Web and organize them in Moodboards.
Their second forthcoming product is called TweetMag. It uses Twitter usernames, hashtags and lists to curate a feed of articles. It only uses tweets that contain links and ignores those that don’t. When it finds a link, it grabs the headline, an abstract and embeds any associated media (images & videos) into the feed. Essentially, it becomes a feed of articles prioritized by what’s being tweeted about most. It doesn’t require users to have a twitter account since they can simply search hashtags or view common topics like technology or sports.
TweetMag is a social magazine that reduces the noise that often plagues Twitter. It transforms Twitter into beautiful magazines of articles and media that people are tweeting about most. Itâ€™s like making a personal editorial team out of the people, lists and tags you follow.
Itâ€™s not just for your own feed either. TweetMag is an amazing way to explore things outside your network. Interested in tech gadgets? Find or create a Twitter list of people who tweet about it and youâ€™ll have an entirely new way to discover the latest and greatest in gadgetry. Itâ€™s great when traveling to new cities and even better when checking out a breaking story. The possibilities and content streams are only limited by your interests and imagination.
