AddtoAny Adds PhoneFavs

AddtoAny is a social bookmarking aggregator that provides a automated button for site owners and bloggers to add tho their site to give readers the option to save the current site or article on a myriad of social bookmarking sites and user services. For instance, with one button you can let your users save an article on digg, reddit, myspace, facebook, yahoo, a ton of other sites and now PhoneFavs as well!

You can see it in action at PalmInfocenter, underneath each article next to the permalink button is a link to “bookmark & share”, clicking on that will present the addtoany dialogue that lets users save the article on their desired site.

I’ve also added a link here so you can save to wherever you would like:

New PhoneFavs Logo

New PhoneFavs Logo

Our more astute users out there may have noticed our newly minted icon up above. The new PhoneFavs logo is a more modern take on the prevailing mobile phone form factor in a pseudo tri-dimensional style.

Many thanks to the fine pixel work of Dave at Glyph Lab. I basically asked Dave to improve upon the existing icon we had been using and he did a truly outstanding job.

New Feature – Homepage bookmarks widget

We added a new feature today to the PhoneFavs homepage. If you’re currently signed in and have saved some Favs, three of your most recently added Favs will be displayed on the homepage. It’s a quick way to jump to your most recent adds, and you can still access the mobilizer as well by clicking on the green “m button”.

You can also navigate to your full list by clicking on the “my favs” link in the navigational header or by clicking the “User’s Latest Favs” link (where User is your account name).

We’ve also made the site a little more iPhone and iPod Touch friendly with a script which auto hides Safari’s top toolbar.
