In 2008, the internet was a very different place. It had been a year since the first iPhone was announced and that year, the first commercially produced Android phone was launched by HTC. Snow Leopard debuted in the summer of that year and it would be another year until Windows 7 came out leaving users with the unsatisfactory Vista version.
It was a time of discovery; users were testing what these new devices could do and looking to get more out of their desktops than ever before. Apps and programs were exciting to try out, difficult to find, and sometimes too shady looking to install. It was all this that led to the creation of AddictiveTips; a blog dedicated to helping users find reliable apps and tips, tutorials that worked, and an honest opinion on what was good and what wasn’t.
The internet landscape is very different today. Since 2008, people have grown comfortable with the new technology and the vastly powerful devices now at their disposal. Our readers today know what a good app is and more often than we can count, we’ve had dedicated readers send us some great tips and write to us about their favorite apps.
And that is the future for AddictiveTips. In a few weeks we plan to pivot into a new community powered website which will change how we share tips and apps. Our new website will allow you to engage in valuable constructive discussions as well as contribute your favorite apps, productivity tricks, tips, tutorials, and more for the benefit of everyone. Through everyone’s collective feedback and opinions, the community will decide what’s good, what’s bad, and what works.
The old AddictiveTips will continue to live on in the archives of the internet. The new AddictiveTips will grow to what we hope will become a reliable place for people to come and find the best tips on the internet.
We would love to hear what you’d like to see in the new AddictiveTips so drop a comment below. We’re listening!
