Instaframe

Woot! I just realized I never announced our new iPad app here on the blawgh (but it’s been linked from our main page so you may have seen it anyway). It was released about a month ago and is available for $1.99 on the App Store!

The app is called Instaframe, and it’s a digital photo frame for your iPad that show pictures uploaded with the popular iPhone app Instagram. The app uses the Instagram API but is not endorsed or certified by Instagram.

The way it works is that you can configure it to show pictures from your feed, your own pictures, the popular feed or the latest pictures taken near your current location. The last one is the default and it’s a pretty cool way to see some pics of your city and see what’s up (all through the lens of hipster-friendly retro filters). E.g. today, if you live in Gothenburg, Sweden as we do, you would see that 100% of all local Instagram users are currently documenting “Andra långdagen” (a street festival at Andra långgatan)

Watch out for more news about new apps coming soon!

There is so much you can do, and it’s almost as if it’s is giving you a massaging manicure while you are exploring it’s depth and inner chambers. God damn this app rocks, can’t wait until Limp Bizkit releases their new album and Fred Durst will serenade it on every damn song!

Finally you will have the chance to enjoy the life you’ve seen on Gossip Girl. Check out the most daring blogs, pictures from the craziest parties and read up on what’s going on in Your town.

ÖeG Kickoff Party

A few of you may already have heard, on Monday 22 December at 5 pm ÖeG will have its official inauguration party at our new offices (a.k.a. The Wardrobe) located in Jonas’s residence at Dr. Bex gata 13B in Göteborg. All our fans are of course welcome, please write something in the comments if you want to attend. And link to our blog and write about us on Twitter.

We will also use this event to try to raise some funds for our trip to Riga and the Barcamp Baltics in February. All we ask is that you bring one case of people’s beer, drink it all up and leave the refunds for us.

As it is a Monday it also coincides with our first real Champagne Monday. Depending on the mood we may have a big whiteboard brainstorming session with all the guests and maybe some drunk coding or other Web 2.0 related activities. Jonas has promised to provide some kind of cocktail snacks.

The dresscode is business casual. Please keep in mind pictures from the event will be featured on YouTube and all over Web 2.0 so try to not be ugly.

Office Space

We are currently on the look out for some premium office space in central Gothenburg. Preferably a large residential house with room for at least four people. We need somewhere to code our apps, brew our beer, hang our whiteboard, throw our wikkid release bashes, and similar activities. And somewhere to wake up with a pounding head to the sound of your wingman’s fingers caressing the keyboard, arousing Xcode into producing beautiful pixels of perfect interface. If you’re aware of someone who is subletting a house or large apartment in Gothenburg please drop a line in the comments. Peace sisters.
