Pownce gets some fresh new features

Pownce gets some fresh new featuresPownce, the easy way to send out goodies to friends has announced a few new helpful features.

  • Sending brief snippets of text, images, photos and links just got a little easier with Pownce's new updates. Besides beefing up the system to run faster, the team has integrated in:
  • Event notifications - the most recent five upcoming events you have been sent will appear on the right hand side of the screen.
  • Inline video playback, image previews - YouTube, Google Video, Metacafe, Revver, and Vimeo videos as well as images from Zoomr will be automatically embedded in your notes for quick viewing abilities. Images from Photobucket and Flickr will be added in the future. (Why Pownce wouldn't start off with Flickr, we don't know, they are only the top image hosting provider.)
  • Social network profile display - Profile where else you are on the web. Easily link to your other profiles online, including Digg, Last.fm, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, IM id's, and links to your websites and blogs.
  • Preference settings - Open links in a new window by default, and customize note and reply features.
The one thing that keeps us wondering, where's the API? Twitter, the competition has theirs out and people are doing some great things with it, but when can we expect some consumer integrated mashups from you? However, Pownce is on the move to distinguish themselves as a true quick message player.
