So if you’re a regular Basecamp user you probably hate their interface and wish you could change it. Or…you wish there was a cute little widget you can have floating around your desktop, notifying you of new messages and to-dos and such. There is one, but it’s an Apple Dashboard Widget and if you’re a Windows or Linux user you’re out of luck (as always, when it comes to pretty things).
Well, I had the pleasure of speaking to the developer of this awesome app (pictured below) and asked if I got enough “votes” for making a similar AIR app for the rest of us would he do it. And he said, and I quote – “Perhaps ;-)”.
So, leave a comment and I’ll point him to this post when we have enough!
You know you want to use this for your projects. Let him know and leave a comment.
UPDATE: If you don’t want to wait for an AIR app for Basecamp, AlertThingie just added this functionality to their new app. It’s not nearly as powerful as the widget above, but if you want a twitter-like feed of Basecamp activities, it’ll do the job.
I finally found a fix (that works!) for Pocket Guitar for 1.1.4 firmware.
- In the Installer, add the following source: “http://podmap.net/apps”
- Go to Install -> Toys. There will be 2 Pocket Guitar packages. Doesn’t matter which one you choose. Install.
- Once it installs, you’ll see a red circle on the Update button, so tap that and update it.
The only problem I found with this method is that even after you update, the update notification doesn’t go away, but the app does work.
