Twitter and Foursquare Apps


Earlier today we uploaded the latest version of the Spacebrew forwarder apps for twitter and foursquare. These apps enable you to forward tweets and foursquare check-ins to other Spacebrew client applications. We developed these apps at the LAB to begin integrating content from our favorite web services into Spacebrew environments.

I've been playing with these apps for a few months now, working to squash some bugs and add a few missing features. This app is a very simple "alpha" prototype with a pretty clunky UI, but I thought it was time to share it with the world.

We are hosting an instance of these apps on our Spacebrew server so that you can check it out without needing to install a local version on your own computer, since that process is somewhat involved. Here is where you can access the twitter and foursquare endpoints for this app:

Take them for a spin and let us know what you think. We hope to add an instagram app to this list in a few weeks.

If you are interested in tweaking these apps you can get the code from the repository on github. Our apps use Temboo to access the APIs from Twitter and Foursquare. Temboo provides a more consistent way to interface with API from different web services. It is a great tool to use for prototyping this types of apps.
