News for Seesmic Social for Android

Dear Seesmic users,

We are making sure that we respond to your feedback updating the Seesmic for Android app as fast as we can. This release contains a number of valuable updates, and modifies the way ads are displayed.

Updates for both Twitter and Facebook:

  • Photos are enlarged in tweet/post details (Twitter/Instagram/Twitpic/yFrog)
  • You can now configure to hide/show avatars
  • You can now configure to show in absolute time
  • Ads are repositioned to improve the user experience, including placing ads on the bottom and removing ads from the Twitter mentions timeline


Updates for Twitter:

  • You can view a favorite/star icon in timeline
  • You can now view if “the user does (or does not) follow you” in Profile Details
  • #Hashtags are now included when replying

Updates for Facebook: You are now able to see who liked a post.

Updates to the Widget: You can now disable/enable auto scrolling in the widget.

Obviously these updates are live on the Seesmic Pro application as well (except for the ads).

Please continue to give us your feedback!

The Seesmic Team

    Solid update, but where is the tablet version that you were showing off 18 months ago?  It was looking so good!

    Quoting myself from twitter, and expanding on it a little:

    Well, I don’t like the new stripe highlight too much as it’s much less noticeable (but that’s probably the point, maybe I’ll get used to it), and the bigger margins make it hard to see there are more tweets above (the scrolled view has a white fadeout on my phone when you aren’t at the end of the view, but since the fadeout it just as high as the margin, which too is white, it’s pretty much impossible to see whether I’m on the top of the view without scrolling around a bit).

    Moving the ads below doesn’t increase the user experience…

    This is a quote from your App Description on Google Play “The best Twitter client on Android” Well this would be the best if it worked on Android Tablets. Fix it so Twitter works on Tablets.

    When clicking on the user profile’s avatar (pic) the picture is a small size. It used to be full. Why?
