Dropify Launches File Publishing App for Facebook


This is one of those apps that if you don’t have a use for it, you will develop one.

If you’re a musician, designer or anyone who regularly offers free downloads, here’s one app you may find useful to promote your wares on Facebook. Dropify comes courtesy of Germany-based Hike Social Apps, and integrates with Facebook to “make file downloads more social”, as it puts it.“Dropify changes the game of file downloads,” says co-founder and CEO, Chris Striepecke, ambitiously. “We provide a fun way for people to both publish and discover awesome free files. We make files social.”

Few Consumers Are Cracking The QR Code


Some of my students are becoming aware of my penchant for using QR codes on handouts and in presentations to direct them to web resources. But it gives me pause that they are not widely adopted in the US. I heard this report yesterday, too. Give a listen and weigh in on this technology. Would you use or not? Why?

If you drive by billboards or flip through magazines from time to time, you may have noticed pixelated squares popping up all over the place. These aren’t scrambled checkerboards or alien landing pads, but QR codes, short for quick response codes.

The codes are scanned with a smartphone camera, kind of like one might scan a bar code, and marketing departments all over the country are coming up with clever ways to use them.
