Just want to clarify that this client is *unofficial*. I'm building it in my spare time as an outside developer. ๐Ÿ‘ฎ Still early and very alpha, but already useful. The biggest missing features are account creation, activity, adding friends, magic words, and a design of any sort. :) A few nice things:
  • โ€ข automatically refreshes so it's nice to leave open
  • โ€ข use L/R arrow keys to navigate between friends
  • โ€ข drag and drop an image or GIF to upload it. Post a link to one to do the same.
Otherwise, it's improving every day (usually a few times throughout the day, and it'll even tell you when it does!), so check back whenever. Source on Github: https://github.com/domhofmann/pe...

I downloaded it a few weeks ago, my friends did, too but we only tried it that day. I believe we didn't find the actual value. Did we missed something?

Awesome, @dhof. Some have described Peach as a mobile-first tumblr. How important is web for you in the next year?

@rrhoover I wanted to make sure I was building something on our API using the same rules and conventions third party developers would use. That's the only way we can do right by them. A lot of people (myself included) still use a computer every day, so web seemed like a fun place to start. I plan to keep improving it bit by bit, day by day. :) That said, we have a pretty solid roadmap and Android is on the way, so web isn't a focus for us right now. Of course, if it's something people are interested in we will absolutely take another look.

@rrhoover @dhof I agree with Dom. A lot of us still use the computer, especially if you work on tech/web/marketing. I think the web client is just about right.

@dhof My .02 worth, but while Android is important (just see how many of my posts ask that question!) I think Web is as important. At least until ChromeOS has better Android options, for those poor BB users (some at one of my clients), and there is a true mobile Ubuntu, and... IOW - to catch all the folks who are not yet fully on mobile, or for various reasons can't use mobile at some point. I understand you can't be everything to everyone. But that usually is the argument for doing a Web version - go web to go wide, and then go deep with mobile.

This is great, @dhof! Just added to my Peach Apps collection. You mention that one of your goals with Peach is to be "great for developers." There have already been a few third party Peach clients built for Android, Mac and the web. What other types of apps would you encourage developers to build on top of Peach?

@jackdweck I'd personally love to see something autonomous. Even something as simple as my daily horoscope or the top news of the day.
