On my phone I mostly use Gmail (of course), GMaps, WhatsApp, MobileVoip (calling abroad), Droid Wallet, Sleep as Android (to wake up fresh), Twitter, RunKeeper, CheckMyTrip (when travelling).
On my PC every day I use keePass (to store hundreds of passwords securely), of course chrome and FireFox (w/ millions of tabs), Aptana Studio + Git client (to code stuff) in addition to this Photoshop, and many other services.

In these blog post, I outline things that our startups are working on and other startup related stuff that pops up during a week.
A shot from yesterday: Martynas (Chief Portfolio Manager), and withEvent.com team - Daugilas and Vytaute. If you don't know Martynas, he's a tough guy who assigns homework for our teams, makes them sweat and kicks their asses till the cash flow gets positive.
Recently Sellfy launched Google analytics integration allowing sellers to track their customers and sales better. And it comes with Google Analytics e-commerce support as well. Currently they are working on product page redesign that will bring users new features (like pay what you want model) and also will be more clean and simple.
dragdis releases two features that they wanted to be on Dragdis from day one, but they were pushed aside because they weren’t top priority back then - this is what dragdis startup says on their FB fan page.
So, features are:
Link Snapshot (Dragdis will automatically take a screenshot of a link you dragged and display it in a thumbnail on Dragdis.com)
Share folder (Users will be able to share any of their folders via a link)
withEvent.com partners with granimedia.ru – media and communications conference in Kaliningrad. One more awesome mobile application is on the way. It seems that withEvent.com is spinning off – during past three months they got four clients and coming more.
Place I Live guys quite unsocial these days… Their schedule is: It'll be done when it's done! :) Anyway, SEO is their top priority right now.
Morning shot: today's the firts interview with 3rd batch applicants
It has been three weeks since we started interviews and we‘re thrilled meeting you all. Our applicant pool of nearly 300 companies came from 20 countries and 4 continents except South America, Antarctica and Australia.
We received applications from countries as diverse as Ghana and Japan. A number of them came from South Korea, India and U.S. Looking into Asia and Central Europe map, startups from Turkey, Croatia, Hungary, Czech Republic and Romania showed an interested in Lithuanian accelerator. Also applicants from UK, Germany, Poland, Belarus, Denmark, Finland, Italy and of course our Baltic neighbors, Latvians and Estonians, applied to StartupHighway.
Happy to see Lithuanian fellows choosing StartupHighway as well.
It’s quite surprising as we’re more focused on Europe than global reach. Anyway it’s good to see such diversity and we’re seriously considering taking teams in outside EU. That could be a start for something new!
So, rock star startups, dream big and see you soon!
