New Update for Seesmic for Android – Mute Feature

For our Android users, we’re happy to share a simple new feature that’s been requested through our feedback site as well as reviews in the Google Play Store.

Seesmic for Android now allows you to mute any messages based on content or mute Twitter messages based on @username.

Simply choose “Mute” under the Options menu and enter the text you want to mute from your timeline. This will remove any messages from Twitter and Facebook containing any text you enter. When you enter the “@” symbol, a list of potential usernames will appear for you to choose to ensure you want to mute a certain user from your Twitter timeline.

We’re pretty excited about this simple, but pretty useful feature.

Note: We released a version (1.8.3) a couple of days ago, but found some issues & reported crashes for certain devices on Android 2.1 & 2.2 – We quickly released a version (1.8.4), and it looks like, for the most part, all is well and we’ll continue to monitor things. Thanks for everyone’s patience on this.

We’re continuing to work on more upcoming features and will keep you posted!

    It’s funny that these screen shots are on a Galaxy Nexus, yet the compatibility menu button is still shown on the bottom right (next to the multi-task button) because the ActionBar isn’t implemented. If you wanna use the Action Bar API that was introduced with Honeycomb on Gingerbread, you can just use ActionBarSherlock.

      ActionBarSherlock is not compatible with Android 1.5 and 1.6. This was one of the reasons for not using it.

        But who actually still has those versions of Android, especially when 2.3, 4.0, and 4.1 have already been released after that.

    Mute feature is nice, I wanted it. but how do you get to you muted list so you can unmute users or topics later when you want to do so?

    Yes,
    please PLEASE add apps2sd support, as well as a combined view and the
    ability to simultaneously post to Twitter and Facebook (with the option
    to choose to which social networks you’d like to post to at a given
    time…just like on Seesmic Desktop!
