Last week, we released Groups on the web client. Groups is the newest feature for Seesmic Ping and matches up our features with Ping.fm.
We are happy to announce today that you are now able to use Groups with Seesmic Ping for Android and iOS (iPhone & iPad).
Here is a quick reminder of what the Group feature allows you to do:
You can create and send messages to a group of target accounts of Facebook, Facebook Pages, multiple Twitter accounts, multiple Tumblr accounts, and LinkedinView. Groups allow you to send the appropriate types of messages, links and photos to the accounts you gathered.
For Android, we also added the ability to preview and choose a thumbnail for url links for Facebook and Linkedin:
We want to share with you some very exciting updates, as well as our upcoming plans. We’ve been grateful for the support from users like you, and will continue to look forward to working with you to help deliver our products. If there was one word to describe our direction, it’s “focus.” We’re very thrilled and determined to offer you products that make sharing simple yet powerful.
Updates to Seesmic for Android
For one of our most popular products, Seesmic for Android, we’ve recently released updates, with much more to come. We’re finding much more success with the addition of Seesmic Pro at an introductory price of $2.99, which keeps the app ad-free and with additional features such as a combined view and preview support for Instragram images. It’s been one of the top paid apps in the social category and we’ve been very pleased with the release.
These updates allow us to provide more features for both the free and pro version. Our focus will be to consistently iterate and provide users value to one of the most recommended android apps for Twitter and Facebook. Look for many more features to come!
Seesmic Ping: We’ve added Tumblr! And more coming soon!
Since the release of Seesmic Ping, a successor to Ping.fm, we’ve been very focused on delivering powerful yet simple features that help make sharing easy.
We’re happy to share that we’ve just added Tumblr across our Seesmic Ping products on the web, iPhone, iPad and Android. You can now add Tumblr, along with your Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook and Facebook pages to your Seesmic Profile from Seesmic.com, and send messages from your iPhone, iPad and Android as well as email and from the web!
With the addition of Tumblr and other features, we actually surpass many features that Ping.fm provides. With Seesmic Ping, you can do the following:
· Post messages from iPhone, iPad and Android
· Post simultaneously to the top social networks (Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook, Tumblr)
· Post to multiple Twitter & Tumblr accounts as well as multiple Facebook pages
· Post links, photos & images
· Schedule your posts at any time
· View, edit and delete your list of scheduled posts
· View your history of sent posts
· Preview and select thumbnails for your attached links
· Ability to schedule updates
· Bookmarklet on the web for easy posting
· Send posts by email
· Developer API (currently in closed beta) to create plugins or widgets
And we’re not stopping yet. Big features coming soon include:
· Ability to create posting groups
· Ability to support multiple RSS feeds
· And soon metrics!
Clearly, we’re not stopping one bit and continuing to work hard to deliver a product and service we can all value.
In order to continue this rapid pace, once we have these features in place, we’ll be offering Seesmic Ping as a paid service after the beta period, which allows us to provide more features and continually improve the product. We’re looking forward to building the product with our users.
And to keep our focus on our core products and reset our priorities, it’s important for us to give closure to a few of our other products. In the coming weeks, we’ll coordinate the sunset of Seesmic Web, Seesmic Desktop 2, Seesmic iPhone, along with Ping.fm once we have our features in place.
We are excited to announce the launch of our new multi-posting platform, Seesmic Ping. If you’re familiar with Ping.fm, you’ll discover how Seesmic Ping is even simpler, highly reliable and just totally awesome!
At launch, this free beta of Seesmic Ping will include familiar services to reach your audience:
We’re looking to build out our mobile applications, so feel free to send us feedback on any of our apps on feedback.seesmic.com.
For Ping.fm users – With the release of Seesmic Ping, we’ll look to maintain Ping.fm for some time. In the meantime, we encourage you to sign up for a Seesmic Profile and give Seesmic Ping a ride through our mobile applications or the web.
