TinyGrab 2.0: We're Almost There

February, the shortest month of the year. We’re great fans of short things here at TinyGrab, in fact it’s what started us out on this whole journey to begin with. Share your grabs with a short/tiny URL. However, sweet things tend to come in short bursts and we hope that February will give you sweet things in the form of TinyGrab.

Many of you will know of our now almost comical delay in launching TinyGrab 2.0 but you won’t have to wait for much longer. We’ve finished TinyGrab 2.0 for Windows, TinyGrab 2.0 for iPhone has been in the app store since December and this week the finishing touches are being put on the new TinyGrab 2.0 site… but what about TinyGrab 2.0 for Mac? It’s no secret that we’ve been plagued with development issues for everyone’s favourite and oldest TinyGrab app, but that all changed at the start of January.

Since the start of 2011 we’ve had two new team members join TinyGrab, which has greatly helped us in improving development speed. Erin Kennedy is our new Mac OS X developer, whilst Sam Gray has joined as our intern and plugin developer. Together they’ve both been working on getting a version of TinyGrab 2.0 for Mac ready to ship by the end of February, as well as a plugin for the Real Mac Software app “Courier“.

Sometime over the next few weeks we’ll be making existing TinyGrab accounts “TinyGrab 2.0 Ready”, meaning that they’ll be able to upgrade to the new system automagically when they login with a TinyGrab 2.0 enabled application. We’ll also be announcing the winners of our “How Do You Use TinyGrab?” contest.

In other news, February has also seen us switch advertising partners. We’ve left our friends and colleagues from Yoggrt Ads, to join the team over at Ad Packs, by Buy Sell Ads. We’re incredibly excited to be on this new programme and we look forward to working together for the foreseeable future!

Thank you all, as always, for sticking with us over these messy past few months. Good things come to those who wait, and we’re certainly aware that you’ve been waiting for a long time.

How Do You Use TinyGrab?

Enter the ‘How I Use TinyGrab’ Competition

How do you use TinyGrab and what do you use TinyGrab for? Simple enough question, but it’s one that we’d love to know the answer to.

As I’m sure you’re aware by now we’re rebuilding TinyGrab. Part of that process involves a site refresh and we’re looking into building usage scenarios. We could make something up about how we think you use TinyGrab, but we believe it would be so much better to discover how exactly our users use our app in a day to day basis. We think we have a pretty good idea already, but we may be pleasantly surprised!

To thank you all of you who give us feedback we’re turning this into a small competition. We’re going to give away a 1 year TinyGrab 2.0 Pro subscription to the 5 best answers we get. We’ll decide the winners over the next few weeks and we’ll make the final winning announcement here on our blog, as well as notifying you by email.

To enter the competition all you have to do is visit http://tinygrab.com/iuse tell us your email address and fill out the really simple box telling us how and why you use TinyGrab!

Good luck and thanks, in advance, for all of the feedback!

Please Note: The judge’s decision is final, multiple entries are allowed, the competition is available to a global audience. No cash alternative. 1 Year TinyGrab 2.0 Pro subscription refers to the new TinyGrab account pricing tier. The Pro account will become available when TinyGrab 2.0 launches a retail / sellable version.
