Use CalendApp To Create & Discover Facebook Events In Your Area [iPhone]

Events might not be the most popular feature of Facebook, but they can certainly bring a lot of convenience to your life, as they provide a way of simultaneously inviting and managing your guests. There are two kinds of events on Facebook, private and public. Public events can be a lot of fun, but the problem with them is that you won’t know of their existence unless someone sends you an invitation, or you search for them specifically on the popular social network. That’s where CalendApp comes into the scene. This iPhone app lets users search for events in their area, or in any other city. You can also use CalendApp to promote your own events, and the app provides a nice way of keeping in touch with your friends’ latest activities. Read More

Hojoki: Unified Workspace For Group-Management Of All Your Cloud Apps

For those who work with a multitude of cloud services, especially if they all cater to a different type of online content (social media vs. online storage, for instance), sifting through those all at the same time can become really annoying. That is perhaps the main reason why there are so many web apps that let you keep track of all the activity on all your cloud services, and get a real-time vision of, say, a team’s input for a project. Recently, we covered a service called BusyFlow that allowed you to manage all your cloud-based apps in a single interface. Hojoki is a similar web application that retrieves content from a range of services and displays them in a central, unified workspace. Supported services can then be accessed directly from the news feed, which can be shared between a number of team members. Additionally, content can be filtered by different categories, and individual files can be accessed with a single click. The feed updates whenever someone in the team updates a file, creates a new one, or performs any other action. Hojoki lets you access all your tools and team members on one page, so you can always discuss important points and stay informed. Update: Hojoki is now available on Android, iPhone & iPad as well.

Marginize Is Like Foursquare For Websites; Lets You Check In At & Comment On Any Site [Chrome]

Another interesting facet is that users are awarded badges for check-ins. For example, a user who checks in the most at any particular website becomes the curator for that page. Sound familiar? That's right. The concept is very similar to that of location-based social network Foursquare and its 'Mayor' badge/title, awarded to users with the most frequent check-ins at a certain place.
