We've implemented Facebook login!
We haven't been resting on our laurels here at PagePooch. We've just rolled out some great new features:
Don't you hate having to sign up for yet another website? It's a pain having to fill in the same set of fields over and over again any time you want to start using something new, and if your eyesight isn't that great you can have a lot of trouble with captchas.
That's why we've implemented Facebook login for PagePooch. You can still create an account the old way, but you also now have the option of logging in with your Facebook account. Just click on the button marked "Log in with Facebook" and you'll see a dialogue appear for you to enter your Facebook credentials. This way, you don't need to provide a password - we retrieve your name and email address from Facebook, and use that to create your account. If you don't have an account for that email address, one will be automatically created.
Note that you still need to have a password to use the app, and we will generate one for you and email it to you. We recommend you change this as soon as possible.
Automatically post your tracks to Facebook
We've also added the ability to automatically post pages or prices you're tracking to Facebook. If you submit a price or page track using the web interface, and you signed up using Facebook, you'll see a checkbox for posting this to Facebook. If you leave this checked when you submit something to track, then it will be posted to your Facebook feed. If you're tracking something you don't want to share with others, such as a present, then just uncheck the box and it won't be posted. If you use the bookmarklet or the mobile app, then it will not be posted to Facebook.
A new blog
Finally, we needed a way to be able to let users know what's going on with PagePooch, so we've added this blog. In future we plan to show not just news about PagePooch, but ideas for how you can get more out of it. Subscribe to the RSS feed and you can easily see when there's a new post.
