Google releases Chrome extension to build #ChromeApps. "Chrome App Builder" is a utility that allows you to easily create Chrome Packaged Apps without needing to type any code. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chrome-app-builder/ighkikkfkalojiibipjigpccggljgdff

#Chrome #Google
 
Google's Chrome App Builder makes web apps a cinch to create.

While aimed more at kiosk web apps, Chrome App Builder makes it easy to create web apps for your desktop too.
A new 'by Google' Chrome app has surfaced in the Chrome Web Store. Its job: to let users make a Chrome app from a website easy as pie.

Source and Talon for Twitter (Plus) Announcements

Today marks a HUGE day for +Jacob Klinker and I! We have three major and exciting announcements for you, directly from the labs of Klinker Apps, Inc:

1.) Source, our news reader app, is hitting the full production channel today, which means anyone can (and should) go out and grab it on the Play Store now! After months of beta testing, it is at a point where we are extremely happy with its design and functionality. We know is up to the standards you all have come to expect from our work.

It has support for numerous different news sources including:
- Feedly
- Twitter Lists
- RSS Feeds
- Inoreader
- The Old Reader

It also has an awesome Android Wear watch app that I know plenty of people will be into!

Play Store: http://goo.gl/HxbLWG
Beta Community: http://goo.gl/rlH1hK

2.) Talon for Twitter (Plus) is now fully supported on Android 4.4 (KitKat)! That means anyone who has yet to get their Lollipop update can experience the beauty and power of a fully functional, material design, Talon for Twitter app on their devices. Yay :)

Play Store: http://goo.gl/g2pjMI
Beta Community: http://goo.gl/t22LkD

3.) As a special treat, both apps will be on sale for $1.99 for the next 48 hours. If you have been holding back, there is no better time than now to pull that trigger!


Hope you guys enjoy, a lot of work has gone into both of these products and we couldn't be more thrilled by the results. All our apps have all come a long way from when we started and these two exemplify just how far and how much we have learned in the process.

Feel free to share and spread the love, thanks for the support 'all!

Janine's Frostee is an oasis of ice cream, hot dogs, burgers, seafood, and more! Live entertainment will often accompany your visit at this relaxing gathering place. There is plenty of outdoor seating (no indoor) with cover in case of a summer rain. They are closed during the winter months and usually open around mid-March. The staff is very energetic and friendly!
