Seesmic, the company best known for making consumer-facing social networking apps, has shifted its strategy for the second time in its four-year history, this time to focus on building mobile apps for the enterprise. Can the third iteration of Seesmic finally bring the company success?
A look at some of the big stories in mobile today:
— PlayBook: Wondering why the PlayBook tablet lacks native email support for BlackBerr…
Seesmic, a popular third-party Twitter client for desktop and mobile devices, today announced it would end support for BlackBerry handsets at the end of June. One developer doesn’t make a trend, but this could be the start of one, given RIM’s struggles as it slowly transitions.
Twitter client Seesmic has raised a $4 million third round from customer relationship manager Salesforce.com and an unidentified company man…
Last week, Google dramatically changed its core search interface with Google Instant. With the trend of feed-like user-interfaces continuing to gain momentum, it’s worth taking a look at some of the advantages and disadvantages, as well as how businesses can implement and add value to them.
Seesmic, the social-networking startup, today launched a new version of its desktop application that not only allows users to log in to more accounts from a single dashboard, but also includes an open plugin marketplace that offers support for 40 other related social applications and services.
Many people only use Twitter to watch and hear from other people, often celebrities. To that end, Seesmic is reversing the trend of adding more and more features to Twitter clients, and today releases a tweet visualization tool called Seesmic Look.
The BlackBerry apps (s rimm) I use for Twitter activities generally do a fine job. I use the no-frills Blackbird for its performance and Ubertwitter for its features. Still, I watch out for new Twitter apps because innovation knows no end and developers find ways to make an app more usable and faster.
Seesmic, known for its desktop and web-based Twitter apps, recently updated its feature-rich Seesmic for BlackBerry client, which was first released late last year. It has potential, despite several uncooperative features.
Seesmic, in its efforts to be the Grand Central Station for social network updates, has “acq-hired” Ping.fm. Where Seesmic has mostly focused on the ability to consume social web information on various platforms, Ping.fm supports a variety of posting options.
I’ve long been looking for a Windows-based Twitter client that can delight me as much as its native Mac counterparts. Too many clients for Windows (s msft) depend on Adobe AIR (s adbe), something which isn’t an ideal arrangement, in my opinion. TweetDeck and Seesmic are both powerful tools, but why can’t someone make a Windows-native app that works just as well?
Seesmic apparently saw the wisdom in that idea, because it recently revealed a new Windows-only Twitter client that doesn’t require AIR to run. I jumped at the chance to take the software, which is currently only available as a preview edition, for a test run. Read More about Seesmic for Windows: An AIR-less Twitter Client
