Using Seesmic for Android to Add Other Web Applications like Tumblr, Identi.ca, & WordPress

UPDATE 3/3/11: Unfortunately, it looks as though tumblr does not support this service any longer and you can no longer connect to your tumblr account from within Seesmic for Android using the proxy support feature. You can still continue to use the proxy support feature to connect to your other social web accounts. Thanks!

Using Seesmic for Android, you can now connect to several different social web accounts such as identi.ca, Tumblr and WordPress using our recently released proxy support feature.

Evan Prodromou from status.net wrote a post on how to connect to a status.net or identi.ca site using the proxy support in Seesmic for Android. So what does that mean? It essentially means that you can access other web applications that uses the same connections as connecting with Twitter. It's as simple as connecting with another Twitter account.

The one requirement you need is to know what the API url is for that application. Here are the following API urls we're familiar with:

  • identi.ca = https://identi.ca/api/
  • tumblr = http://<username>.tumblr.com
  • wordpress = https://twitter-api.wordpress.com

Here's an example of connecting with a microblogging service like Tumblr. Here, we use a tumblr account to add into Seesmic for Android.

If you want to see the tweet exchange between you and other users, by clicking on <in reply to> you can see the set of replies. In ReTweets column, you verify the ReTweets you created, RTs by others and which of them were considered valuable and ReTweeted by your followers.  You can now either choose between the new RT and the old style ReTweet, now found in the Quote feature.

ConversationReplies

GeoLocation is one feature of high interest in Seesmic Web. Once you have enabled it in your Twitter Settings account and use Google Gears, your followers will be able to see the location the tweet was sent from.
