Social Jogger – Extracted From The Acer Iconia
It looks like most vendors are having their creative teams of programmers and designers working on visually appealing, trademark apps for their devices. Acer seems not to be the exception as they have come out with their very own Social Jogger, which is basically a social network app with plugins for your favorite sites like Twitter and Facebook. The interface of the app is rather smooth with a scroll wheel to allow you to easily go through any updates on your friend’s pages. The information will sync nicely with your contacts, and much like Sense on HTC, you will be able to have a one-stop shop for all the information on the people you care about. XDA member ericssonka has posted a dump of this on our forums.
So, if you wanted a taste of Acer on your device, you may really want to give this a go. There are no reports on how well this works for lower resolutions or what OS it runs on, but the reviews state that this app was first spotted running on a Froyo device. Give it a go and post some feedback.
