Magazinify: Your Personal Digest

leave a comment

I want to introduce "Magazinify", the latest experiment at AmiWorks.

Magazinify is a bookmarking service that allows you add articles to a personalized daily digest, that is emailed to you everyday. You can  then go through the digest in your leisure.

We generally keep bookmarking articles to read later and forget them. So, now we can keep bookmarking the articles in the ‘to read’ list and  receive them in a digest that can be read like a magazine while travelling, waiting, or any other suitable time.

Cheers! Keep Magazinifying 🙂

Introducing ‘amiCollaborate’- the collaboration tool for web developers

one comment

During the life cycle of a web application lots of meta data is generated, by meta data i mean status updates, bug reports, task list, development credentials and many other small small stuff, which involves sending emails or going to another website to fill the details, and reports, now if you have multiple projects to work on then you have even more data to manage.

I am not sure about you guys, but I find it a big pain to write an status update email or open yet another tab to fetch a small piece of information stored there or search it in my inbox among 100’s of emails.

As we, web developers spend most of our time on web browsers, we thought why not create a browser add-on which will allow me to leave status update, report the bugs manage my task list etc.. while i am on that web page. We wanted to see the project related information in the context of the web page we are working on.

With this thought we quickly wrote a Firefox add-on as proof of concept, We felt encouraged by what we saw, so we are now working on a version which we will release for public consumption soon.

Here is a quick screencast to show you what we found exciting, I apologize for the poor audio quality.

Here is a screenshot of how it looks right now.

Today we turned 1 year old officially, though I like to say that we had an Alpha release of AmiWorks, and to those of you who know what AOE – ROR is, we are now in tools age.

When we founded last year, we had no clear direction as to what we wanted to do, other then experiments. As we progressed, we learned lot’s of things, we build few things, some things are in pipeline and now we know where we want to go.

We started with two person team, and now we are five person team, and expanding.

An Experiment By AmiWorks

4 comments

If you have visited PHPCamp or Track Live Tweets then you might be wondering why we call them ‘An Experiment’.

If you would have asked this question to me a month back, it would had been very difficult for me to explain the logic behind it, but few days back I read a book by Dale Dauten  ‘The Max Strategy’ which explained the idea in just 3 words ‘Experiments Never Fail ’.

And before you get the wrong idea that I think simply calling our products ‘Experiments’ will ensure that they succeed, let me explain.

Experiments are meant to be way to prove a theory or hypothesis, and if it does not show the desired outcome it only means that something is wrong in our theory or logic, which means we can either change our experiment or the theory. 🙂

In either case, experiments help us understand what works and what does not. This allows us to provide simple solutions and services that work seamlessly.

This is the philosophy on which we founded AmiWorks.
