This morning, Seesmic announced that it had been acquired by fellow Twitter client, Hootsuite. Seesmic has always been a pioneer in the Android Twitter game. At one time, they were the go-to client. To see them join forces with Hootsuite, my favorite Twitter client of the last 4 or 5 years, this should only mean that amazing updates and features will be on the way. Hootsuite has mentioned that they have experienced recent “hyper-growth,” which apparently means that others are seeing the light. (more…)
Seesmic, now there is a name we haven’t heard much about in a while. As one of the top Twitter apps back in the early days of Android, this was a must-have for most users. But then the official Twitter app was released along with a dozen other feature-rich options and Seesmic soon disappeared from most of our radars. Today though, a substantial update is available including the option to upgrade to a “Pro” version that hides ads. They also tossed in thumbnail image viewing from Twitter and Instagram, gave you the ability to upload images directly to Twitter, and through the Pro version, added multi-account viewing.
In order to utilize Pro features, you will have to install the free version followed by the Pro version, since it is really just an unlock key. (more…)
Seesmic for Android has just received its first in update in what seems like forever. The update brings a few bug fixes, support for t.co links, and actually drops support for Google Buzz. You can use Seesmic as an easy way to lump all of your social networks including Facebook and Twitter together for easy management while on the go. Seesmic hasn’t seen any updates in a while – anyone still using it for their social needs? (more…)
Seesmic received an update today which gives users the ability to drop shortcuts to a variety of things right on their home screens. Want to quickly jump into your Mentions screen? Shortcut it. How about a favorite list? Shortcut that too. Maybe a Facebook page? Yep, that too.
Seesmic update! That was a bad joke meaning “big” update…anyways.
One of the more popular Twitter clients on Android received a major update today that includes full Facebook support, updated widgets and Twitlonger integration. In Facebook, you can now add multiple accounts, view updates, comment, like, post to your accounts and to the pages you are admin of. With Twitlonger, you can cruise past the 140 character limit, but also set Seesmic to automatically use the lengthening service. And last but not least, widgets are now available for all of the supported services including Facebook, Twitter, Chatter and Google Buzz. (more…)
The new Seesmic 1.4 Beta was released to Google I/O attendees today and we got a hold of it. What’s the big difference between the market version 1.3 and 1.4 beta? It appears as if they’ve included Google Buzz support. Sweet.
Anyone want it?
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.

there was really just one thing holding seesmic back from becoming the best twitter application available for android (in our opinion). and guess what? they’ve fixed that issue along with many others in this latest update.
the “one thing” we are talking about is the addition of multiple accounts…
The necessity to add multiple accounts to mobile devices has become one of the most significant elements of Seesmic Android. You can now add multiple Twitter accounts in the application, and cross-post messages at the same time. This means that you can easily navigate through multiple Twitter communication channels and stay in touch with all your followers simultaneously. Moreover, the notifications you will be receiving will announce you of the online activity of your default Twitter user.
here are the other updates/fixes…
- Adding an Extra Large text size option
- Your profile information (avatar, number of following and followers,…) will now be updated automatically
- Changing your Twitter account password will now be handled by the application
- Composer now auto-corrects and auto-capitalize your words and sentences
- Notifications are now cleared when the application is accessed from Launcher
- Easily changing default account from the application’s Settings
- Can remove a Twitter account simply by pressing on it
