* From my Twitter page



The old ScribbleLive feeds were causing problems on iPhones, IPads, etc. because they messed up the site’s rendering. The new ScribbleLive widgets won’t do that. But they’ll continue updating in real time, so, as before, there’s no need to refresh to watch those particular widgets do their magic.

* I added four ScribbleLive widgets. One for the Statehouse and one for breaking news are updates from before. I figured out how to add far more Twitter accounts, so lots more people/entities can be followed here.

One of the new feeds is for statewide/congressional candidates. I’ll update that list as more candidates begin Tweeting. The other new feed is for state legislators. There are close to 70 state legislative Twitter accounts, but not everyone actively Tweets.

* The feeds are limited to the ten most recent items, and they won’t display posted photos, but you can click the icon above an individual feed to see the whole thing.

All this adds up to even more reasons to visit CapitolFax.com during the day and even around the clock. Heck, you should probably keep your browser sitting here all the time.

* One day, maybe later this summer or in the fall, I hope to do a much-needed site revamp. But it won’t be a radical failure like the last one. I promise. It does need to be cleaned up, though, and I’ll get to it.

* Also, stay tuned for a new General Assembly iPhone app that I created with a national company. It’s done, I just haven’t rolled it out yet. Soon.

    Any details on what your app going to do? I have one from Google Play that is a directory with links to GA website for bills and committees. Nothing that I couldn’t find without the app. Just got it out of curiosity.

    ===Any details on what your app going to do?===

    It’s pretty comprehensive.

    Bravo. Thanks Rich, the new updates make mobile viewing much better on my iPhone. I appreciate it.

    Awesome!

    One-stop shopping is always appreciated. I like what is possible now, and looking forward to the app as well.

    Great news! I hope that the roll out would include having this site render automatically in a format which could be viewed on a smartphone.

    Thank you.

    Thanks from an iPhone user who thought it was his phone for quite awhile.

    Thanks

    Thanks for doing this, Rich. I’m a long-time subscriber and am happy that you’re helping out everyone on your blog as well. Note to those who just catch up on the blog - there’s much more if you subscribe.

    Iphone? Yuck! Android! Please?

    Seriously though, congratulations on the app coming out soon and even though I am an Android user, I understand why the much less fragmented iOS ecosystem is much easier for developing apps and getting them out there without losing a whole ton of the of the iOS audience. I believe you use an iPhone Rich? So of course you want to be able to use the app.


  13. - Just Me - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 5:06 pm:

    Do you need volunteers to test your app or view your site re-vamp?


  14. - MrJM - Monday, Jul 29, 13 @ 6:22 pm:

    Is this gonna be compatible with my Trēo 755p?
