Threadable’s Mailing List For Teams Makes Your Inbox Less Noisy

“But our old mailing list we had been using for years, that was really successful.”People continued to use the mailing list, but no one really liked the mailing list, says Baker. Annoyed, many users then create a filter to archive the mailing list so it stays out of their inbox. So the team realized that there was an opportunity to build a mailing list solution that was actually good. Y Combinator-backed Threadable, a newly launched mailing list management solution, wants to offer a better way. That is, emails sent with Threadable let users quickly mute message threads, turn threads into tasks and claim them, mark tasks as done, and more.

Apportable raises $5M for native cross-platform iOS and Android games

Unity-based games are also easier to make cross-platform, but not in the same way as native Apportable apps, Fischer said. Apportable claims that SpriteBuilder is the only game development suite that enables a developer to run Objective-C code as a native application on Android. Apportable says that those who adopt SpriteBuilder 1.0 will be able to rapidly build iOS and Android games with Objective-C and Xcode, an integrated development environment for Apple-related code. Apportable has raised $5 million in a new round of funding to finance a game development tool that enables developers to take Apple iOS games and get them to run Android mobile devices in a native format. Fischer said the time it takes to convert a 2D app from iOS to Android using SpriteBuilder 1.0 depends on the task at hand.

Can Google's Nexus Q media streamer play games? Sort of

Google’s freshly announced Nexus Q media streamer may be designed for music and movies, but developers have already used the device for something different: games. Philippe Hausler, a developer at software company Apportable, managed to get the Android game Swords and Soldiers running on the Nexus Q. After all, they managed this hack less than a day after getting a hold of the Nexus Q. For that you can blame the Nexus’s Q’s distinct lack of touch controls, which is an obvious limitation for a device with no touchscreen. The Nexus’s Q’s hackability is owed to, in large part, its miniUSB port, which is an open gateway to the device’s innards.
