By | April 12th, 2015|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: |

I discovered this seriously crazy and funny iOs game Man or Goat on Twitter which is in Beta testing right now and I had to try it out. I'm not sure if it was a Dev asking for testers for a chaotic farce of a game out that tempted me or the video I saw, which showed that it was absolutely crazy. Man or Goat for iOS has been created by Gareth of Newtquest Games - who started this venture in May 2003 - its taken him almost 2 years to get this game finished.  When you know the full story - which adds to the fun, you will understand why.  Funny iOS game Man or Goat Man or Goat sounds like a simple game for your mobile at first - you just have to decide if the sounds you hear are a man or a goat.   Simple - no, its not.  Strangely enough, goats don't just bleat, they make some very strange noises indeed.  Gareth's extensive research on Goat noises made him realise that there are 25 categories of noises!

Twitter is Rolling out the new Twitter Quote Tweet

By | April 7th, 2015|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: |

Twitter is rolling out a revamped version of the quote tweet, its so very much different its more like the new twitter quote tweet. I already have this on one of my accounts and yet on another I don't see it yet - so its coming to us all gradually.  Its available on the iPhone the Web and coming coming soon to Android. People hardly use the quote tweet because its just so ....... ugly - it would just put quote-marks sound the tweet - leaving you very little room to add what you wanted to say. Its pretty hard to see who said what with the old quote tweet. Also I guess people prefer the RT - Retweet which includes RT and your @Name although on the mobile version of twitter when you RT you don't get the option to put a comment - unless you do it manually - which is still a much preferred way to retweet by many that used this way of retweeting before the retweet button appeared. The New Twitter Quote Tweet Now it looks much better [...]
