Guardian tagbot

A useful new information resource. Not quite up to Siri levels of sophistication but very useable for tagged results.

It's a Twitter based search assistant that links into the newspaper's current and archived articles using the Guardian's Open Platform.

@GuardianTagBot is a Twitter account set up for the content API robot, TagBot. If you tweet it a search term on your phone or online, it will then send you a link to the latest matched content.

Ripples & Reader

The bug where Ripples wouldn't work for languages other than US English has been ironed out and I'm now enjoying being able to use it. 'What's hot' is also showing in the saved searches area to the left of the screen as well as the main Stream.

Just refreshed my Reader tab and liking the new look & feel of the interface and greater G+ integration. Good stuff:)
