- Fosimo: Minimalistic; key value (as I perceive it) is the proactive fetch of updates/messages and notifications.
- Facedesk: Basically a replication of the browser experience based in Adobe Air; IMHO not very original (doesn’t even refresh status updates dynamically).
- Tweetdeck:A different (better in my opinion) presentation paradigm for the Twitter stream; I use it all the time to focus on different sub-groups of all the individuals I follow.
There are many more (see the list below; which is not comprehensive).. I can’t write all my thoughts on these, as this is a research I am doing for an specific client proposal; however I asked publicly and I believe in giving back and I am giving what I can here:
I am surprised! Rich clients have been touted as important because of the computational power residing in the desktop/laptop and the superior presentation capabilities.. where are those applications that showcase these capabilities? I was expecting to find out I have been missing on much by mostly using browser clients; doesn’t seem like that.
What do you think?
List of Rich client Applications for Social Networks:
ScrapBoy (Orkut, Facebook, Myspace Client)
Twhirl (Twitter, Friendfeed and others )
Sociagami: (Facebook, Myspace, Twitter)
Fonebook (Keep Outlook Synch with Facebook)
Outsynk (same as above)
