Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
SNOView Puts Public Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ Feeds in One Place
We all have our short list of people, blogs, sports teams, and so on that we follow on our various social networking sites. They’re usually public profiles and don’t really require any special access to view. Nonetheless, we let them flood our feeds with their latest news. There is now an application that lets you all you follow into one comprehensive list.
The application is called SNOView, and the premise is simple. You use it to follow the public profiles of the various public profiles you follow in order to have all their updates under one list. For instance, if you follow an American football team on Twitter, a celebrity on Twitter, and your favorite development site on Google+ (that’s us, right?), then you could use SNOView to view all of these under one interface.
It was posted to the forums by XDA Forum Member MOST2K2, and it certainly has a few other things going for it. The official list of features is:
- clear and chronological presentation of your favorite feeds from Twitter, Facebook and Google+
– no registration for these social networks necessary (!) Celebrities and news-sites usually post public news
– Facebook-authentication possible to read your contacts of non-public posts (only in paid version)
– adjustable profile order
– detail view with navigation through all posts
– link to the post on the respective website
Perhaps the coolest feature is that it doesn’t require that you actually sign into these networks to view these updates. For those concerned with security, this is a great way to stay connected on social media without selling your soul. For more detail, check out the original thread.
