I just thought I’d mention that I have a new visitor record for this web site. 🙂
Last Saturday, August 30th, the number of visitors went through the roof with roughly 12 500 unique visitors in one day! I’m usually blessed with a fairly good number of visitors, but this far exceeded that.
It wasn’t a blog post which caught this attention, though, but rather my GMDesk application (run Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs and Google Maps as a stand-alone installable application). It got a lot of attention online, and the word spread. Within a few days it has been downloaded an additional 13 000 times than before.
My opinion on GMDesk
Let me the first to say that GMDesk is far from perfect: I really wanted to make into into a great application, and to suit my needs as well, but a lot of general Adobe AIR constraints and WebKit implementation weirdness has kept my hands tied (I’ll probably cover this in more detail in a future blog post).
Try it out
Anyway, try it out if you’re interested, I hope you like it; but please accept its limitations as well. Other alternatives, if you for instance want Gmail as a desktop application, are Prism (which I’d personally recommend) and Fluid (a decent alternative, only for Mac users).
