A couple of weeks ago, our post with the best online tools to learn languages ​​was a success. Unfortunately we did not include a very interesting tool, but take the opportunity to talk about it in today. It is Lingualia , a tool of the technology so that we can learn languages ​​quickly. Next, we review Lingualia, language learning application, reviewing their fundamental features and giving some reasons for using it.


Internet is not only an endless source of entertainment but also provides us with many opportunities, working and learning. From ventures and platforms as Duolingo or LiveMocha , we find a community of people passionate about languages ​​and ways of learning. Which means we have something for everyone when it comes to encouraging us to learn something new. The proposal passed Lingualia more social side, so this app to learn languages ​​could be considered e-learning social network that makes use of artificial intelligence to adapt the course content.

The proposed adaptive Lingualia is fundamentally depending on the needs of each student. While some want to learn languages ​​for work, others want to do it because they are about to go on a trip, or just for pleasure. Also, some of them will have a few minutes a day to devote himself to learning, while others have hours available to experience. That's why this app to learn languages ​​is fully adaptive to the needs of individual students. What it does is take into account all students' personal characteristics, such as prior capabilities in other languages.

Through specific data each Lingualia can offer both content and customized courses, with a unique structure for each of the students. They are getting rid of this thought of homogeneity in learning, which is a basic course with a predetermined structure and stable content, which does not take into account the peculiarities and personalities of each. Lingualia proposes a linear learning is not a "smart education".

Of course it's natural to wonder about the functioning of the app. Many services offer a personalized experience when in fact what we found is with a variety of content that fits different molds. To Lingualia, the key is to move on customization as you can. That's why we, as users, have different issues to identify key points to be able to build then a course structure and content that are fit for what we're looking for. This is where comes in artificial intelligence this app to learn languages.

With the technology implemented in Lingualia, you can identify the motivation behind the interest of study for each student, but in addition, you can also discuss the way forward it has in each of the content, identifying strengths and weaknesses, and also learning problems you are having. Thanks to this technology, Lingualia is able to "make decisions" based on the data it collects from the user, in order to create a personalized learning experience for each of us. With these data, the structure of the courses and their content is dynamic, facilitating faster progress and a deeper understanding, among other things.

Lingualia is a language learning application from the cloud. Or is that not only we will be able to access content from anywhere, but also find our progress stored in case of access from different computers. Our progress can be connected between different devices, but the fundamental idea behind this is that learning never dwell, and that we use our "downtime" to move forward with the courses. Thus, applications can Lingualia to learn a language when we are going to work or college.

Lingualia is available through the web , and with a specific application for iPhone . On the Web, we will be able to do a level test to know what state we are, and then check in at no cost. Existence is very practical application for iOS, free also, since we can extend the experience to other devices without a computer. If we are looking for a personalized experience when learning languages, then Lingualia is an excellent choice for us.

Google Drive is the online storage service from Google, the almighty search engine. Its aim is to serve you so you can save up to 5GB of files of any type, in particular documents to Google Docs and photos to Google+. Drive The possibilities are endless, and we have seen how it can help you save files to share with Gmail and we've told you some tricks to squeeze Google Drive . But Drive can serve you for many more things. Did you know you can listen to music from Google Drive? We explain how using DriveTunes , an app for Chrome.

google listen music drive

DriveTunes installed on Google Chrome, Google's web browser, and acts as a music player. What plays? Basically keep the music in your space Google Drive MP3 and M4A.

The advantages of this are many. For starters, you have to copy your favorite songs from your computer to mobile or portable to carry with you wherever you go. Nor need to use services like Google Music, Spotify or SoundCloud . So you make sure you have the music you like and not what these services have in their database. That includes your own music, if you're an artist, or even audio recordings of radio talks or fragments.

To start using DriveTunes need just installed Google Chrome and install the extension. The process is very simple. Once installed, it appears in the Applications tab of Google Chrome. When opened for the first time, it will ask permission to access Google Drive.

google listen music drive

If you have music in Google Drive, you can easily upload. By accessing Drive main screen, click the symbol of "Up", to the right of the "Create" button. You can upload individual songs or an entire folder, and see the upload progress song to song.

Once you have uploaded music, and you can enter DriveTunes. You see, she looks like an ordinary player rather minimalist in my opinion. Automatically displays the music rise to Drive in the supported formats MP3 and M4A, though in future also read FLAC and OGG.

Personally, DriveTunes is a great success that Google should consider integrating into Google Drive by default, but having Google Music should not be in their priorities. In the future we hope to add DriveTunes improvements such as integrated into the address bar shaped miniature player, but still, I think it will be very useful to hear the music that you like without relying on online services.

Tools to measure our influence in Twitter

How important is our influence on Twitter? For brands, we can understand wanting to know where they stand. For home users, who are not public figures often "sell" their tweets about brands-perhaps rather a matter of ego. On several occasions, we talked about Klout , a service that allows us to obtain a qualification under our influence. While data from all services that measure the influence on the net the bird are dubious, to some serve as a guide. So let's talk today of tools to measure influence on Twitter.


The "guide" is an important consideration in the case of measuring influence on Twitter. We can take this information to make something concrete data, but we know from the very beginning that are not carved in stone. In fact, data from some services differ profoundly from those found in other: thus, Klout will tell us that we have a considerable influence, while PeerIndex perhaps tells us that we are not as important as we thought. Therefore, these data do not take as literal form. Now, made the above point, we can go to the tools.


PeerReach is an interesting web based application to measure influence on Twitter. Through different sections, we will meet with several variables. However, one of the interesting things about it is that allows us to see who the most influential people who are on our list of supporters. In the first section, called "PeerGroups", let's see what we have more influence group. Then, we will deal with each group of influence (bloggers, technology, music, film, television, etc.) which are our most influential followers. One of the most interesting tools have is that we can make a comparison with our competitors brands to see which areas of influence beyond us or we lead. We can also have a chart that indicates the growth of our audience, and the fundamental interests of each of our groups.


The second major tool to measure influence on Twitter is Twitalyzer , we have mentioned on other occasions. It allows us to do a thorough analysis of our influence, in various ways. One of the differences with many of the tools that we will find in this list lies in the subscription mode that requires us to make a payment to use the main features of the platform. It has a synchronization with Klout to see our influence in this service, but also lets us see other fundamental data which, for brands, can serve to make a quick pan of a given situation. Twitalyzer tells us what type of users (for example, my personal account is listed as "Casual User"), tells us the impact our tweets, number of followers you have, the topics on the most tweeted, and most used hashtags. In this case, we can access our own, but also to the account of the competition of the brands we handle.


Third, to measure influence on Twitter can use TweetStats . We have also mentioned this tool in different situations, but for this particular case we can also obtain this information. TweetStats's approach lies in the visual. Instead of having the information in numbers we have in graphics. Again, all we have to do is insert a user name to obtain some basic data. TweetStats was created by Simply Measured makers, excellent reporting tool (even for a fee) to measure our performance in social networks. TweetStats is a very nice platform, but of course, does not give us very advanced data. The influence can be measured by the number of tweets sent and the number of followers, but can be wrong a lot. If what you want is a fast tool to get this information, then TweetStats may be what we need.

Tweet Grader

Tweet Grader is a good alternative when measuring influence on Twitter. It is a free web tool and quite direct, that allows us to measure how powerful a Twitter profile. In the same way that Klout allows us to generate a score from 1 to 100 based on our influence, and also allows us to compare with other profiles. We just have to enter the user name to get the information, which, in this case, is the number of followers, power of those followers, our ratio of followers / followed, how often we update our account, and engagement we receive daily. It's a good way to get basic data.

Twitter 2

Tweet Reach

One of the crucial differences of this application to measure influence on Twitter is that we have to, or yes, to authorize the application to access our data from Twitter. but with this action, we are giving you access to a larger amount of data to analyze. However, this means that, unlike many tools that we reviewed, we can not use it for competitive analysis . Beyond this clarification, the purpose of Tweet Reach is to show how far you've come a tweet we send. Once we synchronize our account, we find that we can see what we estimated range, plus exposure of our content, based on the impressions. We can also review account activity, the number of replies, retweets and tweets sent, the more retweets tweets that we had, and other relevant data more. It is a good choice when to get out fast deep but our influence.


PeerIndex is a somewhat complicated tool to measure influence on Twitter, but beyond that will be an interesting addition if we start using it. One of the ways in which it differs from other services is that we actually give rewards according to the influence it. Thus, we accumulate points which can then be redeemed for certain products. However, this is not in the core of the application. Just as the other tools mentioned, we can see the activity that we have, our impressions, and the scope of our tweets, retweets and replies. It's basic, but has a interesting twist.

Retweet Rank

We close our list with tools to measure influence on Twitter by Retweet Rank , which is actually one of the simplest web applications related to this topic. This does not mean that it is not powerful. What it does is calculate the number of times that a Twitter account retweets received, then create a certain ranking and a position in which to place our own. For example, if we have a rating of 50,000, this means that we are in that position in the overall number of accounts that are retweets (considering the millions of users, is a positive number!). This particular ranking does not have much use, is not as accurate numbers as to be able to present to a client but allows us to identify trends in content and give us an idea of ​​how we can improve our performance and influence. All this, with just a few clicks.
