TIPS: Adding Google+ Short Cut to Desktop (iPhone)

July 4, 2011

Well… it seems that Google may have finally got it right with their new Social Media application, Google+ (or… Google Plus depending on your preference).  It is taking the Social world by storm in a way that its failed predecessor, Google Wave never did.

Google is promising a native app in the future, but for now, their clear stake in the Android platform makes that promise a little shaky at best.  For those of us on the iPhone, however, using the mobile site to access G+ is a bit of a pain… however making a shortcut straight to your desktop is a quick way of mimicking the behavior of a native app.

These steps are not new, but are worth repeating, and obviously, this works for any site you may want to visit via the Safari app.

1) Visit and enter your credentials.

TECHNOLOGY: Google Wave Notifier (Firefox & Chrome)

December 16, 2009

If you’re anything like me, getting used to checking one more digital communication device can be a tough habit to get into.  Many of us have multiple e-mail accounts, Twitter accounts, Facebook and lord knows what else.  So… when a little helping hand comes along to assist your memory — we’re always appreciative.

Recently two Google Wave Notifiers have been released, one for the Chrome browser and one for Firefox.  I’ve not used the chrome, but the Firefox add-on has proven highly reliable.  From your Add-On manager, you can change the settings which currently default to “check every 30 minutes” if this is just too long for you.  And upon initial installation, you’ll need to input your Google Wave credentials.
