San Diego's Finest tea party bloggers just released a Windows 8.1 app. This app is an update to one of the first Windows 8 political apps available in the Microsoft store. The Windows 8.1 app is free (click here) as is their android app (click here). No app is currently available for apple devices, however, the website at www.theslobs.org is highly responsive and adaptive for various screen sizes.
The San Diego Local Order of Bloggers is a group that formed during the beginning of the tea party movement in response to out of control government growth. The group includes conservatives, Libertarians, Democrats, Republicans and Independents. It consists of a close nit group of writers, radio and television personalities, activists, organizers and concerned citizens who occasionally meet over beers.
The term app is short for application. It is shorthand for small, restricted programs that run without full access to the systems they are installed on. Windows 8.1 apps can add an informative "live tile" to the start screen (also referred to as the "lock screen") of the latest Windows operating system. These "live tiles" allow applications to present live information in a condensed and standardized format. Users can choose tile sizes for each program and organize them on the screen. The latest SLOBs app adds support for the largest and smallest available "live tiles" and other Windows 8.1 improvements.
Finally, the group's website and apps are designed to sharing stories as easily as possible. All include links to share stories on Twitter, Facebook and other social media. The bloggers also add the standard news reporting of the top topic at the bottom of the page/app. This helps users compare what the bloggers comments to what is being released in the news media. This feature is used by other bloggers and commentors to quickly get up to speed on the current hot topic in order to add to the discussion .
Go download the app and review the website.
