Screenqueri.es | Pixel Perfect Responsive Design Testing Tool.

At some point the discussion over responsive design comes up when talking to students about their favorite sites.  A good way to show them sites that are designed to handle different media types or devices is by using the beta utility linked about.

I will also be using this tool in my next “Advanced WEB Design” class as it is cost prohibitive for the college to keep all the different sized devices handy for my students to test their new templates or site designs.

Enjoy!

For example, I show my students how to self publish photos to a blog using their smartphone.  The photos are taken and thenemailed to a Flickr account which then automatically publish the photo to a blog with a preset template.

I have not used this service, but since we recently talked about tagging and specifically geo tagging i thought this little service seemed interesting, especially the part that you only have to take a picture of the logo of the location you are at for the service to figure out where you are.

The first one click check-in and coupon delivery app!
Picalogo iPhone app enables you to get coupons and check-in to various services – like Foursquare and Facebook places – merely by taking a picture of the logo of the business you’re in! It’s everywhere in the business

I can envision a time where auto check-in will take pace when you take a picture of somewhere you are at.  Your cell phone already know the Lat and Long of where you are so it wouldn’t take that much.
