Pownce Offers New Features, Still No API

pownce.pngKevin Rose’s microblogging startup Pownce has announced a number of new user focused features.

New features include incoming event notifications, inline video playback, the ability to display social networking links and new preference settings.

Notably though, the additional features are focused on those interacting with Pownce via the web, not the Pownce AIR client. Of course it would be possible for a third party desktop application designer to create a client that utilized these additional features…if only Pownce ever got around to offering an open API; the last we heard of that was July.

The minority of people who use microblogging tools directly from a web page should enjoy the new features.
