Web Pick of the Week: Seesmic

Posted by Dex On 11:25 AM

(Every Wednesday, Joey D takes a look at a web application, web page, or open source program that benefits you! Take a listen every Wednesday at 3:50 for the Web Pick of the Week on Big Country!)

This week on the show, I decided to dig into the deep and plentiful world of twitter clients for all you twitterholics like me. If you are like me, you like to manage your twitter in a space that allows you to be creative, catch all the content you are looking for, and isn't to hefty on your computer so it can run in the background or on your terms without slowing down your machine.

While I have used and become a fan of Tweet Deck, Echofon, and many of the other applications for Twitter out there, trying to find the complete package. This week's Web Pick, Seesmic, is just that.

Seesmic not only is a down-loadable program, but it also can run very smoothly inside your favorite web browser. If you are a Motorola Droid or Blackberry user like myself, you can also find a very solid, yet free mobile version as well.

Features and Perks:

Web Version- Very fast, smooth loading, left sidebar that beats out twitter's 2.0 client, easy search engine, contact list, and easy option adjustments.

For those of you that have used other twitter clients through a browser and have not found it to allow enough customization, you will be happy the moment you launch Seesmic.

For Windows/MAC- Multiple accounts, Great Options for your stream, add or remove services, not too heavy of a program, very solid resolution, great profile view when clicking on twitter handles, easy image integration.

The Windows and MAC downloadable versions are really simple to use right off the bat and again are smooth running. I have been running the program on my desktop for a week and still no crashes. It's so simple, yet get's the job done on all levels.

Mobile Version (Android OS/Blackberry)- When I started tweeting from my phone from my Motorola Droid, I could not find an application that would have the same feel on my phone as it does on my main computers. Seesmic for Android and Blackberry gives you that. The Droid version is very fast, allows for multiple accounts, and has a perfect setup for mobile tweeting. Without trouble you can view your replies, messages, profile and time line. A quick tap of the menu button on the Droid instantly gives you a list of options that make the tweeting experience on the go work.


Like I said on-air today, I do not want to get into the twitter client world on the Web Pick of the Week, but when a product like this comes around you have to share. The software engineers of this program have done a flawless job of making three seperate but distinct programs for four different systems work flawlessly together. Whether it be in your web browser, desktop, mobile phone or Mac.

Download it today
for your tweeting machine of choice, or if you tweet on the go open up the Seesmic Web today. It makes the whole tweeting experience that much more fun and easy!
