Interested in trying out retickr? You have come to the right place and I think when everything is said and done, you will be pretty happy with your retickr experience.
First things first… You need a Mac computer running Snow Leopard or Lion. Not sure if you have the right operating system? Click on the apple icon in the top left corner of your Mac computer and then click About This Mac. You will need to be running version 10.6 or later.
Alright, so you have the correct computer and operating system. Now find the big orange button about four inches above and to the right of where you are reading right now, the one that says DOWNLOAD for Mac. Click on that and it will take you to our application’s app-store page.
Click on View in Mac App Store and this will automatically open up the Apple App Store to the correct retickr page. It might pop up a window asking if you are sure you want to do this… you do.
Now you will see a similar looking page that offers you a retickr download link.
Go ahead and click the blue button that says Free and then enter your Apple ID and password. Now retickr will automatically be downloaded and placed in your Applications folder that you can find on your Dock. Click to open the folder and you should see the retickr icon waiting for you.
Now it is finally time to register an account and start simplifying your online experience! Click on this icon and you will be greeted with the retickr Login screen. Here you can login to retickr, retrieve a forgotten password, or in your case… register a new account. Glance down and look for the big button that says sign up now. Click on this and let’s begin.
Alright now it is time to choose the email address and password that you would like to associate with retickr. We personally would suggest using a real email address in case you forget your password or become interested in signing up for our coming-soon email service which will offer organized, personalized news. Regarding the password, all that we ask is that it contains five or more characters. Now go ahead and click the checkbox (read?) acknowledging our terms of service and you are ready for the next step. Almost done.
Now you are ready to select some of your initial interests so we can build your first personalized playlist. We want you to get value from retickr as early as possible… so this is our way of building something cool for you to use right from the beginning. When you are done go ahead and click continue.
Alright last step… and it is one of the coolest things we offer. You can sync your Facebook and Twitter so that you can combine your social media with your articles and blogs. By getting all of your digital content in one place, you can stop wasting time jumping from place to place which will save you more time than you might think. Go ahead and click on the sync account button, enter your credentials (it is very secure and retickr never stores your actual Facebook/Twitter password) and click sync.
That wasn’t so bad was it? You are ready to start using retickr and by providing us with some initial interests and by syncing your social media most of the work is done… time to enjoy having all of your news at your fingertips! Click finish and you will be taken to the retickr Dashboard. The ticker will start automatically and you are ready to either explore the Dashboard or minimize it and enjoy going back to what you were doing with retickr streaming across your screen.
