Penolo – Updates

March 30, 2010

It’s been about a week since Penolo launched. This evening, I’m uploading some changes that I’ve made over the weekend:

  • You can now login without tweeting/saving a sketch.
  • You can save a sketch without tweeting (still requires you to login via Twitter though, so that the system can save a sketch against a name/username).
  • Added social bookmark/sharing buttons when viewing a sketch.
  • Added ‘embed code’ (Javascript) for a sketch when viewing, so that you can embed a sketch easily on your blog (see above!).
  • Added JSON output to the API.

The most important part, as far as I’m concerned, is the ‘embed code’. I’d like to eventually make Penolo so that it’s the ‘youtube’ or ‘scribd’ of sketching: whenever you need to quickly get an idea across in a blog, Penolo should be the first place you turn to sketch it out and embed it.

We’ll see how that vision goes, but in the meantime, I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas.
