Over the past week rendeznew has gotten some serious buzz. I posted last week about our spot on makeuseof.com but now things are starting to balloon. Just do a search on twitter for rendeznew and you will see what we mean (rendeznew twitter search).
All the hype is stemming from our latest feature on lifehacker.com. Check out what Jason at lifehacker thinks of rendeznew:
Rendeznew Locates a Midway Point for Multiple Travelers
I am extremely proud of the fact that rendeznew has been featured on such a large site as lifehacker (one which I read regularly I must add). Not only is it great publicity for the site, but it gives us a real chance to get great feedback from people. Now, I can say that I am working hard to add a feature similar to one of our competitors out there based on all the feedback. Soon, users will be able to get the midpoint for two points along the driving path. This will be a breakthrough for rendeznew and allow everyone much more flexible and accurate results for meeting in the middle.
Thanks again for all the comments, suggestions and praise. If you see rendeznew featured on any other sites or know a site that would like to feature us, please let us know in the comments or through email. Follow us on twitter and become a facebook fan so you don’t miss any updates. Check the blog and site soon because the new version with driving direction midpoints will be up soon (I promise).

When I first got my macbook pro to do some iPhone development, I decided that would be a great time to test out rendeznew in safari (though looking back I could have done it on my PC). After playing around for a while I noticed that when someone would change the results set to Google (or Yelp) and then redo a search it didn’t work as expected. There was a race condition in that the results text are would be told to clear the text area before after all the results were returned. What basically was the result was a map with Result Markers but no text in the results field (until the results set was toggled to the other set).
Luckily it was something that was a simple fix, but having been busy lately, I finally got to it this past weekend. Let us know if you spot any other bugs through email or the comments field. Don’t forget you can follow us on twitter or facebook too! Thanks again for all the support.

It has been a long while since my last post and update. The truth is that we haven’t really changed much with the site but we have been busy promoting the site hard and trying to get the rendeznew name and service out there. It has been successful with a most recent posting on makeuseof.com:
Rendeznew: Find A Midpoint Between Two Addresses
Thanks to everyone for spreading the word about the site and all the kind praise and suggestions. Check back soon for more rendeznew features as they come up.
