It’s been fun to see your.flowingdata evolve the past few weeks, and it’s good to see so many of you making use of it. Thanks for all the useful feedback too.
For those already using YFD, you’ll be pleased to know there are a few new features. If you haven’t had the chance, you can start collecting data with YFD in just a few steps.
Tag Your Data
First, you can now tag your data using Twitter’s hashtag convention. For example let’s say you’re logging television shows and movies that you watch. Without tags, you’d have to separate the two with different keywords, but now you can tag your data with #movie or #tv. You’re welcome to use multiple tags too.
Second, there are short snippets at the top of each individual action page that tell you a little something about your data:
It’s basic now, but this is a step towards more advanced statistics.
iPhone App and Mozilla Ubiquity
I don’t have an iPhone, so I haven’t been able to try it out nor can I attest to how well it works, but I’d love to hear any comments (and I’m sure @josecastillo would too) from anyone who’s using the app.
Oh, and by the way, it’s free. Get the your.flowingdata app here.
Next up is for the Mozilla Ubiquity early adopters. @andygeers published a YFD command for Ubiquity. This gives you a quick command to enter your.flowingdata tweets from Firefox. You’ll have to have Ubiquity installed before you can use it.
Thanks, all for making YFD cooler :). I’m looking forward to whatever else is in store.
