There’s a whole’lotta tweets out there but fortunately there are great apps like Streamd.in that make it super easy to find and view tweets from anywhere you might want. You’ll not only be able to easily find localized tweets, you’ll see them streamed onto Google Maps while you use the full, built in Twitter client.
We’ll check out Streamd.in and why you might want to give it a shot.
Earlier this week we walked through the process of customizing a SmugMug photo gallery theme, for both easy and advanced editors. As part of the how-to, SmugMug offered to give one lucky reader a free Pro plan, which covers a full year and is valued at $149.95!
Recap and winner announcement after the jump.
We’re announcing a new type of post on Web.AppStorm today: Quick Look. These short application overviews will give you a description, a few screenshots, and basic information about a particular piece of software. They’re sponsored, so developers pay a small fee to have their app featured in a Quick Look post.
At the end of each post we’ll have a poll for readers to vote in. If you like what you see, you can vote for us to write a full (completely unbiased) review of the software in question.
It’s a great way to find out about new applications you haven’t come across before and a great way for developers to get the word out about their new app. We’ll have a few of these posts appearing soon so you’ll be able to see how they work.
Quick Look posts will be in addition to our regular publishing schedule here at AppStorm. So you’ll continue getting the same great reviews, roundups and guides, plus you’ll now get Quick Looks at new and interesting apps!
We’re very excited by the prospect of showcasing more apps, finding AppStorm a new revenue source to help us grow, and giving developers a promotional tool to market their work. We’d love to hear your feedback on this addition, so feel free to leave a comment or send us an email.

Creating fonts can be tricky and time consuming business, especially for those who are only just starting to explore the font designing world. The crew at FontShop was apparently aware of this and decided to do something about it, developing FontStruct.
FontStruct is likely the easiest way to design and share fonts, right from within your browser, for free. Not only that but you can view and download fonts created by other designers for free as well. We’ll take a look at FontStruct, their font creation app and how to create a font.
Keeping tabs on your employees or co-workers is no easy task. In most work places, in-out monitoring is done using a whiteboard & marker which has to be updated by hand or a clunky desktop app that does not allow everyone to access the status board. Tabzon is placed comfortably in between the two, being centrally editable and extremely collaborative. The app is minimal without feature creep, however, is it powerful enough to be a whiteboard replacement?
