How do you share your contact?

You’re an entrepreneur, a go-getter, trend-setter, a ninja-guru-master or just a person who talks to people on a daily basis, maybe visit a conference or two, attend a bunch of seminars? Hey – me too! That means you’re sharing your contact information with a lot of people in a single month, just like I do. So, how do you do it?

Business cards are cool. Especially those gold-plated shiny tokens of one’s public status or position in the ever-growing market. It’s always funny to me that we still need them in the 21st century, but fact is we do. They are just…so cool. And they tend to remind the ones we give them to that we may be someone special and that we may share a common cause or interest. But we don’t always use them. We forget to bring them – God knows I always do due to frequent change of accessories – or we simply share our Twitter account or LinkedIn profile, or even type our phone number to someone’s smartphone.

A couple of days ago a company I work with published a fancy new iOS app that could totally change the way we share our contact information. They call it “Share My Contact” and it’s a kind of a virtual business card with a lot of options for selectively sharing your contact information in different formats.

Not long ago I started consulting businesses from the US on SugarCRM and enterprise software. I even took over some dev work. Then I found myself managing more than one instance of the same web app. I soon started messing things up by making changes to the wrong application because they all looked and behaved the same!

I just had to find a solution that would prevent me from creating a complete mess and possibly some international scandal by playing with a live application instead of my local app. Naturally, I built a Google Chrome extension.

Synchi 5.0 with syntax highlight in text/HTML widgets

A lot of time has passed since I posed the last Synchi update. Sure, I present to you the usual story: I’ve been busy with life and work, changed my job – which is a cool thing since I’m a part of a small startup now. Right now I am eager to present Synchi’s new feature:

syntax-highlight-in-text-html-widgets_t

I really needed this feature on one of my websites I’ve built a lifetime ago, and I finally got the time to implement it trough Synchi. Needless to say I am very happy with the end result.

Articles and Pages editor fixed in Synchi 4.6

Finally! Finally, I was able to win the fight with TinyMCE and a number of conflicts it caused with the plugin. Result: I can now use the articles and pages editor without fear of the UI exploding:

visual_t

html_t

I’ve also optimized the settings page and fixed missing theme bug, added language support for the article editor and settings and localized them to Serbian (sr_RS). Visit the changelog page to view the full list.

As always, you can download the latest version of Synchi. Thank you for using Synchi – IDE inside WordPress.
