elog.com adds attachments and Twitter functionality


When we last wrote about elog.com, the service that lets you create web pages from emails, the company was on the fence about offering attachments. Well they’ve opened up their service to include attachments so you can add pictures and video to your webpages.

elog.com is a simple and non-invasive service. Your website looks exactly like the email you send and it can serve a variety of purposes. To create your own web page, just send an email to newpage@elog.com. Your email can have pretty much anything you want in it and your new web page will look just like the email you send. You will be issued a public web page, e.g. 1993.elog.com, that others can view immediately. To update your web page with new content, just send an email to it, e.g. 1993@elog.com.

Another feature includes includes the ability to have your emails sent to Twitter. If you have a Twitter account and you send an email to tweet@elog.com, your tweet will be posted and an auto-generated webpage contains the body of your email, completely unadulterated.

You can have a look at a quick example here.

WICKSoft launches Atachment Viewer for BlackBerry


wicksoft mobile document

Some of you may think that the release of the BlackBerry Bold and OS 4.6 has solved the attachment viewing problem on the BlackBerry (the Bold comes with various free DataViz Documents to Go applications). However, most BlackBerry users aren’t Bold users and there are many devices out there that won’t be able to update to higher OS versions (how many people are still waiting for OS 4.5?).

WICKSoft has released their Attachment Viewer for BlackBerry, which supports all BlackBerry devices (even the 7290!), more document formats (e.g. OpenOffice) and loads quicker than Documents to Go. WICKSoft gave me the application earlier this week and I can say that it’s much easier to use when you’re looking at attachments with multiple pages; the increased speed really reduces the frustration factor of waiting for pages to load. You can see the full press release and some images after the jump.

Their DocHawk software provides email attachment reading for over 50 file types, including PDF, Microsoft Office documents and RTF documents, at multiple zoom levels. HollerID, a more consumer-oriented product, announces the first name of an incoming caller. Over 1,700 names are recognized, and there are 15 voices to choose from. There are too many products to list here, so suffice to say they’ll be worth checking out at WES.
