Facebook Places integrated in sobees My Friends

Here is great news for the users of our iPad application sobees My Friends: a new version of the application has just been released and adds the Facebook places to our already feature-rich client!

From now on, and thanks to sobees, you will be able to follow your friends’ check-in activities, which will be displayed on a world map.  No matter if the places are not available in your area yet, sobees will help you stay up-to-date with your friend’s locations.

We also redesigned the home page and comments view and changed the connection to Facebook, which now uses the new iOS SDK.

We are already working on the next-coming features and, in the meantime, hope you will enjoy this great new version!

N.B: Facebook places will NOT be implemented in sobees lite, we therefore recommend moving to sobees My Friends.



sobees web upgraded to Silverlight 4

Here is a sobees web update – and a meaningful one: our application has been moved from Silverlight 3 to Silverlight 4. This new version of Silverlight enables sobees web to both run in any browser window and be installed on the desktop, and this for Mac and Windows users. But we also brought lots of improvements and brand new features to the app!

The general performances of the application have grown a lot better, and so has the user experience (most particularly out of the browser).

We also worked on the connection to services in order to integrate it directly into sobees. This is a major addition which you will resent right away when using sobees web out of the browser: from now on, it will be possible for you to connect to services even after you installed the app on your computer!

There has been a great deal of improvements in terms of design, since we had to catch up with our successful desktop version. The application is now neater, clearer, trendier!

Smaller changes include the possibility to get either a tabbed or a column view, the availability of different themes and the drag and drop support to reorder the columns.

We hope you will enjoy using this new version! And don’t hesitate to tell us if you come across any bug or issue, we’d be happy to help…


N.B. 1: MySpace has not been integrated in this first release. Should you be a MySpace user, we therefore recommend you to move to our desktop application or to go on using the Silverlight 3 version, which remains available here:

N.B. 2: Please make sure that you run the latest version of Silverlight 4, which has been released on September 1st. If not, simply update it (Windows users: head to the "Windows Updates"; Mac users: it should be suggested automatically when loading sobees web).



sobees Mobile version 0.8 – the Facebook integration

We are really pleased to announce this new release of our Android application sobees for Twitter/Facebook. Not only have we brought great new features and improvements to our already powerful Twitter client, but we also integrated Facebook, making it possible for you to manage both your social networks in a single application!

Let’s take a closer look at Facebook, the major change of this version…

Our Facebook client lets you easily:

  • Read and react to your home feed
  • Keep up with your friends
  • Comment and like their posts
  • Update your status and upload pictures

What’s new apart from that?

sobees for Twitter/Facebook now includes notifications for both your Twitter and Facebook streams. We have also added a cool, brand new widget for you to update your status on multiple services simultaneously!

Please note that the ads have been temporarily removed from the application and this until the release of a premium version of the application.

In addition, we went on improving the general performances and design of the application and fixed a few bugs you had pointed out. So thanks for your help, and enjoy this new version!

This new version retrieves more Facebook videos for you to have a look at on your home page. Also new is the fact that the application now refreshes automatically (you can set up the time in the settings).
In addition, we truly improved the overall performances of My Friends and fixed all the bugs you users had reported!

While we go on developing the app to provide you with even more features (very soon!), we hope you will enjoy these improvements!
