If you’ve got an LTE tablet laying around, like a Google Nexus 7 by ASUS or a Nexus 9 by HTC, and you’re also a T-Mobile customer, chances are you’ve activated it on one of T-Mobile’s low-cost data-only tablet plans. (Personally I’m on the $10/month Match Your Data Plan, which gets me 5GB of data for my tablet.) If this is the case, you may have also noticed that T-Mobile advertises unlimited texting on all of its tablet plans, even though texting is disabled on stock Nexus devices.
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love Pocket Casts. It’s got the best user interface and some awesome features, it gets quick updates whenever Google updates Android or adds a new API, and the changelogs are usually pretty hilarious. In fact, I noticed it just got an update in the Play Store today, with a new feature that takes advantage of Google’s new location API. It’s called Nearby, and it’s designed to quickly and easily share podcasts with coworkers, family, and friends.
When T-Mobile first launched Music Freedom as part of its Uncarrier initiative last year, the carrier allowed its customers to vote on which music streaming services they’d like to see added next. Customers quickly voted up TuneIn Radio as a favorite, although T-Mobile has been largely silent on whether it has any plans to actually add this particular service to Music Freedom.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
