    The (Almost) Eulogy of Oh Hey World

    by Drew Meyers on July 10, 2016

    [Editor’s note: I originally posted this on the Oh Hey World blog] Over the past few years, I’ve worked on two travel apps – Oh Hey World (OHW) and, more recently, Horizon. This post pertains to the earlier product, OHW. I shared a lot of learnings in my 12 months of learnings on Pando in late 2013. That post was written while still trying to figure out a viable strategy around “community” pages — and before ever deciding take another shot at making community accessible everywhere, for everyone with … Read More »

Homely, an Australian real estate portal, just released their new iOS app. Its clean, simple, and includes big, gorgeous photos. All good things for a real estate search app. I’d encourage everyone — particularly those working on property search websites or apps of your own – to give it a spin. ** Would be curious to hear from those running portals outside the US who have released iOS/Android versions — how has traction been between native and web versions? [Disclosure: I consult for StreetAdvisor / Homely.com.au]

Over the past few weeks, traffic has been slowly declining and I’ve noticed a slight decrease in comments. I believe I finally realized the issue — emails for new posts stopped going out. One of my (many) email addresses is subscribed, and upon publishing several posts the other day and not seeing an email from Feedburner the next morning like usual — I dug into the issue and realized the last email I received was from the post on June 24th. Since then, I don’t believe anyone has been getting any … Read More »
