Twitter introduces tailored tweets for brands, both Google Music and Rdio bring interface improvements to their Android apps, and web app integration comes to Ubuntu.
- New targeting adds greater relevance to your Promoted Tweets Twitter introduced today a new feature that will have users receiving tailored tweets from brands based on their location. For instance, global companies that have different launch dates for different countries can send tailored tweets at different times for different countries. This will hopefully cut back on the amount of irrelevant tweets that users receive. [Twitter Advertising Blog]
- Google Music Updates with Minor Tweaks and Additions Google updated its Music app which brings minor tweaks to the user interface, such as larger album art and the ability to change around music order in the Now Playing queue. The app’s widget also received a slight redesign with the added ability to thumb-up music without opening the app. [Google Play]
- Rdio for Android Updates with UI Improvements Rdio updated its Android app today with a few user interface improvements. It’s now a lot easier for users to scroll through newly-released albums thanks to a new grid view. Users are also now able to manage and edit their playlists easier than before. [Google Play]
- Web App Integration in Ubuntu Integrated web apps are coming in Ubuntu 12.10, which means that web apps can be launched as individual windows separate from your main browser, from pretty much anywhere in the OS—including the HUD, Menus, Quicklists, and Launcher. Most of the popular web apps like GMail, Last.fm, and Google Docs are already supported, with more apps being added in the future from the development community. [jonobacon@home]
