Android Quick App: Seesmic (Updated)

This will be quick as we put out a video review of Seesmic some time ago, but wanted to point out the new widget which came along with today’s update.  It’s simple, but gets the job done.

Oh and they’ve also added native retweeting and geotagging.  Nice work team.

If it weren’t for my unofficial marriage to Hootsuite, I may give this one another shot.  OK, that’s a lie, I use both apps.

    Seesmic is the best twitter client on the market..It seems all the reading I have been doing is basically you must use a different app for each service? Just wanted to pick the brains of the greatest group of Droid users in the world! If you guys don’t have an answer then there is none…

    I use the desktop version also and wonder why they can’t add FB to the Andriod app. But I like Seemic overall. The UI is really easy on the eyes.

    It takes a few seconds for the other apps to show up. Once they do, they work fine but it is annoying.

    They really need to put an on-screen way to post a new tweet. Right now I use Touiteur and I love the notification-area-style pull down at the top…

    For those who may not have known, Seesmic used to be video software like Qik. It came out of beta and changed directions completely towards twitter.

    The droid home screen shows with only the background and the 4 mani helix apps at the bottom. It takes a few seconds for the other apps to show up. Once they do, they work fine but it is annoying.

    I love Seesmic… but they really need to put an on-screen way to post a new tweet. Right now I use Touiteur and I love the notification-area-style pull down at the top….Thanks

  • jeesung

    i can't login to my Twitter account with Hootsuite lite. maybe you have to pay for that feature?!? ;-)

  • Tergiversator_Maximus

    SWEET! I had downloaded the update and didn't even realize that I know had a widget option.

    I ducking love Seesmic.

  • hunterfiuzat

    How do you get Seesmic…According to the Android Market it does not exist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Phase3d

    Hey Kellex GREAT SITE! Keep up the great work! I also vote for a Droid-Life App!

    Hey everyone! Is there any kind of app available that will let you do many social sites from one app? Like twitter, facebook, myspace, etc? It seems all the reading I have been doing is basically you must use a different app for each service? Just wanted to pick the brains of the greatest group of Droid users in the world! If you guys don't have an answer then there is none! Thanks everyone!

    I went from Twitdrod to Seesmic to Hootsuite. Not sure I would go back just yet, even though there are some nice tools on Seesmic now.

    I just can't wrap my brain around an app made by seesmic, called seesmic. For those who may not have known, Seesmic used to be video software like Qik. It came out of beta and changed directions completely towards twitter.

  • fred114

    Seesmic for me. Used Twidroid for a while, but like Seesmic much better.

  • DallasDon

    This app rules. Thanks for the heads up.

    Quick question from a newbie…I have a droid with 2.1 and the Helix 2 launcher. I have 7 screens, most with 6+ apps and about 3 widgets running. Many times when I press home out of an app such as maps or browser, the droid home screen shows with only the background and the 4 mani helix apps at the bottom. It takes a few seconds for the other apps to show up. Once they do, they work fine but it is annoying.

    Do I have too many screens? How do I keep the delay of apps showing from happening? I checked my apps running in the background and it is nothing out of the ordinary.

    Thanks

    • Hoagie

      It's just the launcher used to happen to me to with 5 screens.

  • Tad

    Just basicly how did u pimp ur screen out…already have helix2 but how did u get those cool looking logo things idk…

  • Tad

    Oh my bad not ur unlock screen lmao

  • Tad

    How did you get your unlock screen to look like that???

  • RLJSlick

    Aye

  • Nathan

    HOOTSUITE ALL THE WAY!!! its the best twitter app out on the market def worth the money!!!

    HEY KELLEX MAKE THAT DROID-LIFE APP

    BTW..I went to to Verizon store the other day to pick up a carrying case for my droid, and while I was there, their were two older couple waiting in line and also a farmer and his kids…needless to say they were all looking at the droid, the next thing you know is I'm giving them instructions on how to find your website and root there phone…they looked at me like I was a God or something…then the verizon rep came up to me and asked if I wanted a job ha ha I was like no thanks, then she say's “well you just helped me sell this phone to two different people so i'm giving you the leather case for free:) I was happy and I owe it all to this website.

    Just to let you know I plan on using this website address in a future song of mine, I am an up and coming rap/rock artist being signed shortly and I will let you know which song on my LP I will be tagging your website in….Thanks for all the help and support with this phone it is incredible.

    • kellex

      Seriously? That is amazing. First off, love the fact that you dropped the site on some people and sold them on the Droid and the VZDub person just handed you free swag.

      And second, daaaaaaaaaaaamn! You'd really drop Droid Life in a song? That would be the coolest thing ever. Let me know and we'll be sure to promote that on the site.

    • droidocd

      Hahahaaa! Same thing happened to me! (minus the label signage, and free shit) but I did plug this site, and help someone to buy 'THE BEST' phone out there…telling them about the endless stuff u can do on a Droid is a huge selling point, and in my opinion, VZ should use it too…it works. I agree about the DL app too!!

  • CoDash

    I was a BETA tester for this. Seesmic is the best twitter client on the market

  • drewr1992

    You know what you should do Kellex? Create a “DROIDLIFE” app. That would make my day. No. EVERYONE'S day. :) Just a thought.

    • kellex

      Some one make one! Actually, poll coming on this subject. :)

      • drewr1992

        2 great minds think alike! :)

        • 976Adam

          Definite must, Kellex. I've been wondering if you were going to release a Droid-Life widget for a while. I use a few, but the one I would like to see happen is yours. Make it happen bro!

    • syntakk

      I've been wanting this for a while now. Would love to have a nice DroidLife app that that I can use to quickly view and create comments. The mobile site is great but commenting can still be a bit of a chore sometimes.

      • drewr1992

        All in favor of a “DROIDLIFE” app, say 'aye'………aye. XD Just starting the poll early for your Kellex. No thanks needed.

        • Michael_NM

          Aye

    Does anyone feel that Seesmic is better than Twidroid Pro yet?
    I've used Twidroid Pro since I've gotten the phone, but it seems like Seesmic is receiving all kinds of hype lately.

    • kellex

      Yeah I ditched Twidroid long ago. Used Seesmic for a while, but love Hootsuite too much.

      • Moeyknight

        Kellex, what's the difference between Hootsuite lite and the paid app? Because I'm not in love with the lite and I might have to go back with Seesmic.

        • jeesung

          i can't login to my Twitter account with Hootsuite lite. maybe you have to pay for that feature?!? ;-)

          • Moeyknight

            I had that problem originally, but I just did an un/re-install, then it worked.

          • jeesung

            just tried it twice. still no go. thanks for the suggestion.

          • jeesung

            3rd times a charm, i guess. now it's working <shrugs>

    • xFenixKnightx

      Twidroid and Touiteur are my favs. Seesmic is just okay, IMO. Never tried hoot to the suite.
