Short takes: Adobe Social adds Flickr, Foursquare, and Instagram; Hooops is a new Dribble client; Apple’s interesting numbers

Adobe Social has announced new integrations with Flickr, Foursquare, and Instagram, and it is the first to to connect to the full check-in data firehose from Foursquare, relying on a partnership with Gnip. This adds to existing integrations with Facebook, Google Plus, Reddit, Tumblr, Twitter, YouTube, and others.


Hooops is a lightweight iOS client for the popular design community platform Dribbble and now joins the long list of other clients, like Swish, Hooops, Balllin, Dunk, and Courtside. It’s free where the others are not, but because of API limitations they are all basically browse-only apps.


Apple’s earnings briefing yielded some interesting numbers, aside from another record-breaking quarter for iPhone sales: Is there no ceiling for smartphones?

Tim Cook noted 84 percent of tablet web traffic is coming from iPads, and he said other tablets have been sold, “but I don’t know what they are being used for.”

Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer also stated that the iPhone has a 62.5 percent share in U.S. businesses.

Apple stock is going to rise on those results.
