Feedient


I have just started (today in fact) using Feedient, which is currently in Beta development. I use Feedient to follow my Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube feeds in the one place in real time. I guess this is something of an experiment to see just how this new web application goes – so far, so good.

Kevin’s Portal: BookYap


I am about to start using a new web application called BookYap. Put simply, BookYap is an application that recommends books based on criteria you enter. There are over 650 000 books in its database, so chances are it will find a book for you.

You can search for a book by using keywords or the filters it has available (based on personality types). By becoming a registered user, the application learns more and more about you and your reading habits, improving the recommendations it makes for you.

Books appear with thumbnails of their covers and book ratings. A brief description appears by hovering over the thumbnail. You are able to interact with the application and associated community by sharing books you have read and your reviews of them. There is connectivity with both Facebook and Twitter also.

You are also able to add books to a reading wishlist if you like. Books can be purchased from Amazon when you choose a book to read.

There is now a link to my BookYap profile in the directory at the left of the page.
