Seesmic for iPhone : Post To Multiple Accounts, New Composer and More

Good news! Seesmic for iPhone has a new look and features we hope you will enjoy. With Seesmic for iPhone 1.4, you’ll now be able to :

  • Access all of your Twitter information, following Twitter’s OAuth update
  • Post to multiple accounts – as many or as few as you’d like
  • Compose updates ahead of time and save them as drafts
  • Add and upload multiple pictures at the same time
  • Enjoy Offline capability

Twitter OAuth

Twitter recently updated their permission levels to protect users privacy, allowing you to approve applications without sharing your password. We have updated Seesmic for iPhone to accommodate these changes by signing in through Twitter’s site (OAuth) to authorize its use.

  • When you launch Seesmic, and your Twitter timeline is being retrieved, a message will pop up, prompting you to begin the Twitter OAuth process. Press “OK” to continue.
  • You will be redirected to the Twitter interface: input your account credentials, and press “Authorize”.
  • When the authentication finishes, you will be brought back to your home screen, showing you all of your spaces.
  • Repeat to authorize each additional Twitter account.

It should be a snap, but if you have any problems, please send us an email at support@seesmic.com or visit Seesmic’s help desk for more details.

Post to Multiple Accounts

Want to post to multiple accounts at once? Compose, and when you’re ready to post, select as many (or as few) accounts as you would like. This includes Twitter, Facebook, and Chatter accounts.

When you tap “Done”, the number of accounts you have selected will be displayed at the top of your screen. You can tap this to add or subtract accounts.

New Composer

Check out the sleek new composer with under the keyboard features.

Additions include the outbox, saved drafts and offline capability. The new interface will now allow you to easily save drafts, upload multiple pictures, and add a link to your location. Just tap on the number of characters you have left (here, 116) to switch between the keyboard and adding capabilities.

What else? You can now attach up to five photos to post across multiple profiles and preview your attachments and drafts before you send them.

Yes! All of this, including a few additional enhancements, are ready for you to to enjoy now. Download iPhone 1.4, and let us know what you think.
