Tagwhat has some big news today as it announces two huge innovations available now: new publishing tools and mobile notifications. Here are the details:
As the web continues to grow, so does the amount of content related to physical places perfect for delivery inside Tagwhat’s mobile tour guide. Unfortunately, until now, there has never been a super-easy, fast way of delivering that content to the real world place. After all, the web is NOT geotagged (i.e. it doesn’t have the necessary latitude and longitude information that would make it possible to deliver content to just the right place on Earth.)
Introducing the Tag it Button and new web publishing tools from Tagwhat. Want to deliver your website, blog, videos, images, text to a real world place, say, to offer a mobile tour or just have your digital stuff WHERE you’d like people to see it? Now it’s as easy as just a few clicks. Simply go to the website from which you wish to publish, tap on Tagwhat’s Tag it bookmarklet in your browser, choose the right place on our planet, and publish. Super fast, super easy. In fact, we’d say less than a minute to a geotagged web! Visit http://publish.tagwhat.com to get your own, free Tag it button and start engaging a mobile audience at real world places in seconds.
Tagwhat’s new publishing tools will increase exponentially the amount of content in Tagwhat available to mobile users at places. Reorganizing the web for delivery at places is what we’re all about and now the publisher’s role is much, much easier. Of course, all content published in Tagwhat this way automatically is linked to relevant Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare pages and delivered to our apps for iPhone and Android.
In our new mobile release, Tagwhat is equipped with a passive notifications feature. Simply visit ‘Settings’ and then ‘Notifications’ in the app and tell Tagwhat how often you wish to be informed about interesting content in your surroundings: occasionally, more frequently, or only when passing Tags you’ve marked ‘Want to Go.’
Try this: Open the Tagwhat app and set your location a place on Earth you plan on visiting soon, even if it’s just in your neighborhood. Tap ‘Want to Go’ on the Tags you find most interesting. Now, when you pass these spots, Tagwhat will be like your friendly tour guide tapping you on the shoulder to let you know you’re near a place you’ve wanted to check out.
We hope you like these new features designed to make Tagwhat much more useful. Please let us know what you think.
