Backer Update: Last Chance to Back Plink

ss1-smallYou have less than 24 hours left to back Plink, which will make it easier to blog on iOS.

There’s a new $5 tier – just added for the home stretch – for you to commit to getting Plink built.

Plink is an iOS app that lets you upload images and insert them into your blog posts using Markdown or HTML, and @jeffmueler is using Backer to support its development.

“Plink,” writes @jeffmueler, “came about after I grew frustrated with blogging on iOS devices. Uploading images and embedding them in posts is non-trivial thanks to frustrating blogging apps that provide limited options for photo storage hosts and poor defaults for automatic link insertion.”

Help support Plink now.

Backer of the Day: Limited Edition Tips from the Top Floor Poster

rain_over_reykjavikToday’s Backer is for a Limited Edition Poster of a photograph taken by @chrismarquardt, host of the photography podcast, from Tips from the Top Floor.

The photography was taken in Reykjavik, Iceland, and, @chrismarquardt says, “It really shows the contrasts in weather that this exciting island has to offer. The view over the bay is spectacular, with Mt. Esja in the distance, but the rainfall over Reykjavik was what captured my imagination in the end.”

There are still three days left for their Backer to hit their first stretch goal. If they receive $20,000, they will add office hours at the launch of this new class with mentors who are available to all students for an hour.
