Tap Into Your News by Topic or Time: WP7 Apps for Twitter & Google Reader

TipTop Technologies just released two free Windows Phone 7 apps to make smart phone users’ lives more streamlined, organized & engaging. Both the TipSweet client & the TipTop Reader app create ‘Hot Topic’ concept clouds from your Twitter or Google Reader feeds so you can quickly scan, tap into specific points of interest & get the tips you need at any time on your WP7 phone. Using TipSweet is as easy as logging into your Twitter account on your phone. Watch the video below to see how TipTop’s semantic magic can help you get the most out of real-time news and conversations you have with your followers.

I also really enjoy using the TipTop Reader app on my WP7 phone (see RWW’s “Using Windows Phone 7: One Week with an HD7) to break down all the news content & RSS feeds I aggregated on Google Reader into bite sized topics & consumable tips. I can’t wait until TipTop comes out with a Web-based version of this personalized news reader so I can get the same experience on my laptop. In the meantime you can check out this video tutorial for the TipTop Reader. One reviewer from Zune Marketplace writes:

I love the approach to summarizing feeds and displaying the topic cloud/tag (which is auto generated based on the most current items in your feeds). This lets me filter by the topics I want to see rather than scroll through a huge list based on the time (which is also supported). Quite often stories are duplicated (in the feeds) so using the topic cloud I can just read one version of a story that is of interest. Since Google Reader is a good place to consolidate feeds, this takes it further by making it easier to consume. the topics are also colorized based on the sentiment of the stories for that topic which is pretty cool.

Please give both of these social & news apps a whirl, download the TipTop Reader and TipSweet from your WP7 by searching for ‘TipTop’ on Zune Marketplace. We’d appreciate hearing your reaction after trying these apps by adding a review on Zune or posting a comment here. Also, you can always tap into the power of TipTop on any mobile phone by going to m.feeltiptop.com.

Enjoy!

TipTop Me Lucky Stars Challenge Results

Last week we asked our TipTop Fans "to discover if restaurants with Irish in the business name serve better food than restaurants just listed as serving Irish cuisine. We didn't get a lot of response, so either St. Patrick's Day in the SF Bay Area has lost some of that green and orange luster or this challenge was a St. Patrick's Day dump.

In either case, the lack of engagement is a perfect opportunity to show off how TipTop Technologies's natural language text summarizer can get make daily challenges easier for us all. Reading hundreds of reviews for a product or service is time consuming and only allows an impression of the data. The TipTop text summarizer can process hundreds and thousands of reviews for a restaurant or whatever, analyze the data, and create easily consumable text summaries across any relevant criteria.

Looking at the TipTop generated review summaries for restaurants (with and without "Irish" in their business name), ranked according to the best Irish cuisine in San Francisco,  you will get a taste of how this powerful summarizer can give you the quick jig before you jag.
