Few notions on nice applications that I’ve recently stumbled upon – both have their virtues:

Paper.li

+ colourful
+ pictures
+ subsections
+ each article can be tweeted in Twitter
– ads
– somewhat chaotic layout
– only whole paper can be liked in Facebook, not individual articles

Tweetedtimes.com

+ friends & friends of friends who posted visible
+ each article can be tweeted in Twitter or liked in Facebook
+ no ads
– colourless
– few pictures
– somewhat dull layout

Paper.li I first noticed some months ago. It took me some time to try it out, my personal first issue was out on 8.1.2011 (http://goo.gl/aFJZr). After that I also tested a paper with my Twitter list of colleagues (http://goo.gl/JkLv4) and with an account I had set up for our Career Services (http://goo.gl/coCff).

About Twittertim.es I learned reading some answers in Quora – couldn’t find the post anymore, otherwise I would’ve given credits here.

My first Twittertim.es was published 11.1.2011 (http://goo.gl/2kWbh), since then they seem to have changed the domain to www.tweetedtimes.com: Google found comments on the change by eg @mickwe and @cheeaun 14.1. It’s really a fast business!

While writing this post I came across a similar app for Facebook called “Postpost” (thanks to a Quora answer by Helge Prestrud Astad) – can’t wait to test that, too :)
